|Big Book of Amiga Hardware: Amiga 2200 (A1000jr) added|
On the Amiga hardware reference website "Big Book of Amiga Hardware" the A2200 has been added. The website wrote: "A few months after the cancellation of the A1000+ and A3000+ it was decided the company should attempt to salvage the A1000+ technology and build a lower spec ECS-based machine. The project was developed under the codename 'A1000jr', an unofficial title intended to annoy Bill Sydnes."
The Amiga 2200 had an ESC chipset, which for reasons of costs only contained Zorro-II slots. They are on a Riser card, other extension boards had to be plugged in horizontally. All in all four different versions were planned which should differ in the processor as well as in the number of Zorro-II slots: A2200 (68020, two slots), A2400 (four slots) and analogical to that the A3200 and A3400 with a 68030-processor. The case of the A2200 was similar to the case of the Amiga 4000. (snx) (Translation: dr)
