Amiga 2000 Coming Soon

Thanks to a friend in Austin, I have an Amiga 2000 system on the way! Getting it nicely equipped and upgraded will be fun; I was a huge Amiga fanatic from ’90-93 during high school when I had an Amiga 1000. I owned an A3000 in ’95, but never really got into using it as I discovered Sun workstations and Solaris around the same time. Unfortunately the friend that was storing the A3000 for me lost it during a move a couple years later.

Anyway, I’ve got an Amiga 2000 with a flickerfixer, A2091 SCSI card, floppy drive, ‘030 accelerator, and an unknown amount of memory on the way. I’ll need to add a hard drive (of which I have plenty), external CD-ROM (got tons of those too), and find a mouse.

If anybody reading this has Amiga bits they’d like to get rid of, let me know.

Things I need to eventually pick up for the A2000:

– Kickstart 3.1 ROMs (so I can run AmigaOS 3.9)
– An extra floppy drive or two, along with lots of DSDD 3.5″ floppies
– PS/2 adapters for the keyboard and mouse (so I can use it on my KVM)
– Ethernet card (anywhere from $50-200, looks like)
– RTG or Picasso96 high-resolution video card
– PowerPC accelerator card (yeah, right, unobtanium)
– Spare power supply

  1. I own the complete editing bay. (Amiga 2000 $ Commodore monitor, Panasonic WJ-MX Digital AV Mixer, Panasonic AG 1962 SVHS player/recorder (2) with monitors, all hookups, manuals and software. This had limited use with Geneva Steel for producing safety videos. Interested?

  2. I have a complete Amiga 2000 that still works just fine. Don’t know what to do with the disks, books, and hardware, but I was thinking of donating it to the Smithsonian or someone else who would like to see what SHOULD have survived over the IBM PC’s. The new “laser mouse” concept was on my computer in 1992. I did buy it used, with a very loud dot matrix printer which I also have. I’d love to get an address to just mail this junk out to anyone who feels they could ever find a use for it.

  3. I would like to obtain an working Amiga 2000. I worked at Commodore (1989 – 1994) in West Chester, PA (where QVC is now) and have a drawer full of cards for it. I would like to see what works and what doesn’t.
