The Macintosh SE was the name of the first compact Mac with an internal expansion slot (at the time the SE was said to stand for system expansion), and that internal expansion slot was carried over to the SE/30.
Previous Macs using Motorola's 68030 CPU had been given the X suffix in their product name, like the Mac IIx.
I remember up to this day a dream i had when « my » mac (the one with the portrait format monitor) suddenly turned into a color monitor.
I had this dream too! Waking up to 4 color grayscale was a total bummer.
I love Amigas. I still have two: a 1000 and a 2000HD.
The OS, yes even System 6, was more user-friendly than Workbench. It also looked better. Workbench was made to be compatible with televisions and it shows. Being made with TV output in mind may have helped it find a niche in multimedia but niches are risky sectors to run businesses in.
I don’t think native networking, of any kind whatsoever, was supplied with AmigaOS until version 3. By then Commodore was on its deathbed.
In 1985 you could buy a few Macintoshes, a LaserWriter, some cables, and one large external hard disk drive and someone who had never, ever, touched a computer before could set up multiple desktop publishing workstations, a shared networked printer, and a file server.
This was impossible on the Amiga, and PCs for that matter.
