Commodore Amiga 3000UX bundle

A3000UX- Click to enlarge
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 workstations:

"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.
