Philips P2000M

The first model was available in two versions, the P2000T (for hobby use) and the professional P2000M.

The P2000M has the same motherboard as the P2000T, but the video part is missing. Instead, the P2000M has a separate video card. It has no color, but it can display 24 lines of 80 characters. The P2000M also has a corresponding display and two floppy disk drives (35 tracks single-sided). The video card has 2 KiB videoRAM and also 2048 half bytes for attributes.

The P2000M is also Viditel compatible, but not in color, and the Viditel software for the P2000M was difficult to obtain.

The P2000M is suitable for CP/M after installing an expansion card to change the memory addresses. Such a card was later also available for the P2000T.
