Commodore Amiga 2000 — History of The Personal Computer
Commodore Amiga 2000,
The Amiga 2000 came in a desktop case with a separate keyboard like the Commodore Amiga 1000. The case design was more PC-like than the A1000 – taller to accommodate the expansion cards, two 3.5″ and one 5.25″ drive bays and lacking the space beneath for the keyboard. This would prove to be the workhorse for the video toaster until the Amiga 4000 came along in 1992.
The 2000 offered graphics capabilities only exceeded the basic Macintosh II, a system which sold for about five times the Amiga’s price. Also like the Amiga 1000, the 2000 was sold only by specialty computer dealers, whcih lead to it’s credibility as a serios computer, but saw fewer numbers sold to the public.

The Amiga 2000 offer expansion ports for both IMB PC compatible boards for 286, 386 and 486 systems and for serious expansion for video and processing capabilities.
