Philips P2000T

The image is clickable

1980.

Philips' first attempt to enter the home computer market was called P2000T. There was also a variant which was designed for the professional market - P2000M. The difference between them was that the home computer P2000T had worse resolution - 40 columns - and was meant to be linked up to a TV, while the professional computer P2000M - 80 columns - was supposed to be linked up to a monitor. It also had a 5.25" disk drive. There was also a portable version of this computer. It was called P2000C.

The Dutch machine did not attract particulary much attention out in Europe, but became more popular in Holland. Despite the fact that it actually was produced in Austria. It was formed clubs which provided original softwares and accessories. In addition, it became quite large in the Dutch schools and to some extent in German schools.
