Commodore Amiga 3000UX bundle
|Developer: Commodore International
Launch date: 1991
The 3000UX was Commodore's ploy to capture some of the UNIX
market. In an unusual step, Commodore management were thinking
ahead and wanted to create a professional image for the computer.
The company had already produced a 2630 card for the Amiga 2500
that had proved popular. In a press release, Commodore indicated
the machine was intended to undercut the prices of existing Unix
"part of Commodore's goal to provide technical solutions at
affordable prices for users, providing a unique platform for the
industry standard operating system."
For a short while, the A3000UX was the only computer that UNIX
users could purchase to use System 5 Release 4. Other versions were
released a few months later. This offered a significant advantage
to Commodore. However, it is unknown if this directly translated
into sales of the machine.
The A3000UX is an updated version of the original A3000 unit.
