   Amiga International is now a speperate, though wholy owned subsidiary of
Gateway 2000. It has recieved quite a bit of coverage in the last two issues
of 'Amazing Computing/AMiga'. In fact, Amiga International has just signed
two seperate agreements allowing for 'clones' based on the technology. From
what I've read, Gateway and Amiga have every intention of revamping the
machine and putting it back in production. BTW, the A1200's aren't
remanufactured...they are brand new units that they started new production
lines for a few months ago.
