AMIGA 3500

A3500T
Developer: Commodore
Year of Announcement: 1991

The A3500 was an early version of the A3000T demonstrated at the Business Computing Show in 1991. During the past ten years several prototype models have  been bought by Amiga owners and computer collectors. These provide a fascinating glimpse of the development process that eventually resulted in the A3000T. For example, the early version incorporated a surface mounted 25MHz 68030 CPU. To house the early prototype, Commodore used a standard CBM PC60III tower unit- an Intel PC that was manufactured by the company at the time.

During the following months the A3500T system/case design was finalised and the machine was renamed A3000T in preparation for the October 1991 launch.
