Amiga 2000

The Commodore Amiga 2000 is for me the most iconic computer I ever had. The power of the Amiga compared to it’s same era IBM PC’s and Apple Mac was amazing. It was the first time people were able to buy a workstation with multimedia capabilities.

Coming from the C64 this was a massive and powerful beast.

The expansion possibilities were amazing. Even now in 2019 you can buy expansions for adding IDE or USB.

Left is my original mainboard and on the right is my new mainboard (see the color difference, right is CLEAN and bright and has the 16 bit bus expanded and recapped by Tristan)
The reason I love big box Amigas… expansions
