Amiga E4000

Developer: Computer City
Launch date: 1999

E4000

The A4000-based machine represents the first new A4000 bundle created since the distribution problems of 1998. It was built and sold by Computer City - an official Amiga Distributor in Benelux. The E4000 consists of a standard Amiga 4000 mainboard built into an ELBOX Ebox tower (also known as Power Tower or Winner Tower). The processor boards are manufactured by Apollo, Commodore (3640) and DCE (CyberStorm).

Mainboard: A4000
Memory: 2MB Chip RAM
Drives: 3.5" 1.76 MB floppy drive, 40x IDE CD-ROM, 13.1GB IDE hard disk
Expansion:
  • 1 x IDE Controller (on A4000 mainboard)
  • 1 x SCSI2 Controller (on processor board) for hard disk & CD-ROM
  • 7 x Zorro II/III slots
  • 5 x ISA Slots (non-active)
  • 2 x Video Slots
