I was recruited by Philips to Vienna in 1980 and was responsible for getting the development of the P2000C started as an engineering development with my boss Herr Firster. Product Management had us developing the P2000B businees desktop using UCSD Pascal P-Code and was very slow. Engineering did the P2000C without Product Management support, that is, an end-around development to get a successful product to market. The dual Z-80 prototype graphics really got us the managemet backing we needed.

I am collecting all kinds of vintage computers. My Philips collection includes several P2000T, one P2000M with monitor $ disk drive unit, a P2500 (P2000B) with monitor and disk drives, two P2000C and the 8250 MSX machine. All of them are working and I have some software for them. Unfortunately I am missing the original CPM disks for the P2500. It would be great if someone could share the software, e.g. in Imagedisk or Teledisk format with me.

I own two of these beauties. I studied the external monitor connector, but I have absolutely no idea, how to get this connected to any monitor neither new nor old nor a converter.

While digging through my cellar I discovered that I probably have one complete P2000M and P2000B (aka P2500). The P2000M has both BASIC and UCSD 4.0-something cartridges to it. The P2000B was probably booted off the floppies, if I remember that right. I loved the P-system implementation on those machines, asit was quite fast - at least compared to the compatition of that time.

I worked for Philips Information Systems in NYC as a marketing support representative from 1981-1985. I still have the MS-DOS version, OEM''d by Compaq that I bought, in about 1983, at a discount when it was being discontinued. That thing is heavy! I remember upgrading it to the full 512K RAM. It has been in storage for a long time. The keyboard was lost many years ago, but I still have the boot disks!

I also still own a p2000c, which is also still working today. First it was gonna thrown away, it was outside,for 2 days covered in plastic, in the rain. I couldnt resist to take it back in. a day later i turned it on, and it started up right away.. Very strong computer, and im showing it to the " younger " generation sometimes.
About the sound, it does have a tiny build-in speaker, but it doesnt go further then just saying " beep " .
