Commodore Amiga 2000


The Amiga 2000, or A2000, is a personal computer released by Commodore in March 1987. It was introduced as a "big box" expandable variant of the Amiga 1000 but quickly redesigned to share most of its electronic components with the contemporary Amiga 500 for cost reduction. Expansion capabilities include two 3.5" drive bays (one of which was used by the included floppy drive) and one 5.25" bay that could be used by a 5.25" floppy drive (for IBM PC compatibility), a hard drive, or CD-ROM once they became available.

The Amiga 2000 was the first Amiga model to allow expansion cards to be added internally. SCSI host adapters, memory cards, CPU cards, network cards, graphics cards, serial port cards, and PC compatibility cards were available, and multiple expansions could be used simultaneously without requiring an additional expansion cage like the Amiga 1000. The Amiga 2000 not only included five Zorro II card slots, the motherboard also had four PC ISA slots, two of which were inline with Zorro II slots for use with the A2088 Bridge board, which added IBM PC XT compatibility to the A2000.

The Amiga 2000 was the most versatile and expandable Amiga computer until the Amiga 3000T was introduced four years later.
