Amiga 2000


Please read an introduction to Amigas in the Amiga 1000 entry.

The Amiga 2000 is clearly the first mature Amiga computer. Commodore released numerous upgrade cards for this machine, including PC emulators, hard drive cards, and other I/O goodies. The "Zorro" slot was the secret to this new ability. Commodore also released variations on this model, including the 2000HD (2000 with hard drive card and hard drive), as well as the 2500 with a processor upgrade.

Personal Note: Another eBay find. I actually had notions of purchasing an Amiga 2000 as an upgrade to my 3000. I planned to put some sort of high-end GVP accellerator in it. That means I was very careful when choosing the machine to buy. Around the time I got the A2000, an awesome deal on an A4000 came up and I went ahead with the 4000 as my new main Amiga. The A2000HD was picked up for collectible reasons, though the Microtek Touchscreen system was a suprise bonus.
