I have a nice Amiga 2000 (HD) for sale.

I received this machine as part of a bundle of hardware that I recently purchased but I have no need for it.

It has a Commodore A2090a SCSI controller and a Commodore A2058 Memory card. The memory card has 2MB populated (soldered in). All the additional memory slots are available so it can be fully expanded to 8MB.

The battery was removed and there is no visible damage or signs of leakage.

I hooked it up and it booted to Workbench 1.3. There are alot of applications installed for video and audio editing as well as a SAS/C development environment.

Price: $150CDN. I will cover paypal fees. Buyer pays shipping.

What's that metal thingy at the rear near the video slot? Never seen that on an A2000.

How can you tell? I have the computer here in front of me and I cant even verify that .. lol..

I looked up the SCSI controller on the Amiga hardware database and it said it was called A2091 so that is what I listed it as..

In any case, if you are correct, thanks for picking that up.. I am not very knowledgeable on the A2000 line.

As Cosmicfrog said, its a security device... think of it like a Kensington lock for Amigas.. lol.. The company that had these used them as digital workstations and development machines.. I guess they were worried someone would walk out with them.

As the A2000 hard disk controller has two connector cables (a smaller one and a larger one) it must be a mfm hard disk and controller. Looking on the controller itself, you can see a 50 pin scsi connector nearby the one end of the controller card, so it must be the A2090!

The remaining question is, if it has autoboot roms or not, but it seems, there is a rom in U36 and two under the two small connetors for small mfm cable, so it should be the A2090a with autoboot! :)

Cheers!

I just pulled the cover and verified.. it is an A2090a. One of the ROM chips says "A2090AB5C".

It does auto-boot into Workbench 1.3 from the hard disk.

Thanks so much for picking this out.. I dont want to intentionally mislead anyone. I made a bad assumption that it was a standard A2091 SCSI controller.

Price drop.. Need to clear this stuff out to make room for new incoming pieces.

Willing to separate out the pieces if anyone needs specific items.. I'd rather it go to the Amiga community than out on eBay.

Or, send me some reasonable offers. I really have no use for this.

Price drop.

This is a very nice A2000 case and motherboard setup. The MB looks very clean and had almost zero dust when I opened it up so someone took good care of it.

Would make a good foundation for someone to build up..

Hoping someone in Amiga community can make use of this. :thumbsup:
