Amiga 2000


Finally time to let some Amiga system out of my collection.

CU A4000

First one of my Amiga 4000 is going out. It has got an absolutely fantastic clean motherboard, battery removed and there is no trace at all of battery leakage. It has an original Commodore 030 card inside even though case says it is the 040 version. Case is in good condition, not yellowed and there are no dents or bumps to the steel cover.

Inside it is empty besides 16 MB fast RAM and C= CPU card. I have taken this A4000 to the limit with PPC 233MHz, Indivision A4000D and CVPPC and now it is back in more humble state. Still kicking major ass as usual.

Well I am selling my Amiga 2000 before the year ends. I do not want to sell it but since I need the space at home for more important things I need to let it go.

Contrary to some other Amiga users opinion I actually think that the A2000 is one of the greatest looking Amiga systems available. It is very boxy, square and good looking with relatively good expansion possibilities. The case is also easy to open and close for easy access, something it does not share with the A4000.

The big problem IMHO is the Zorro 2 bus, it is slow, and something that is very evident when running a graphics board in one of the Zorro slots. I think, that to really enjoy an Amiga besides playing games you should get a fast 040 or a 060 based turbo board, it is kinda hard to motivate myself to spend a lot of cash on a Blizzard 2060 board when I already have 060 in my other systems, besides, even if I get 060 board for the A2000 I am still stuck with slow Zorro 2 graphics.

Anyway, my A2630 and Picasso 2 boards are now sold and the only thing left is the Amiga 2000 case with 3.1 roms and 2 MB Z2 fast memory card.

But if I find a smoking deal on a full A2000 system complete with fast 040/060 board it will be much difficult to resist buying one again!

Sometimes simple is good. There is just something really cool about a kickstart switch for the Amiga.

Add it to an A500 and you have a reason to have a cool shiny stainless steel switch through a hole in the A500 cover.

This is just a fake actually. I do not have my A2000 on my desk, usually it lives under my bed. And usually my desk is not so clean either although I try to have it organized to minimize clutter.
