    expansion chassis
  • a large metal box with plastic faceplate, sitting behind and overhanging the A500 - overall it's a bit larger than an A2000
  • only the A500's keyboard and floppy are exposed
  • connects to the side expansion port - no passthrough connector
  • four Zorro II slots
  • three ISA slots inline with the top three Zorro slots
  • cards are mounted horizontally
  • the Zorro expansion bus is buffered, closely emulating the A2000 bus design
  • two 5.25" front drive bays
  • one 3.5" internal drive bay
  • optional mounting kit for installing a California Access CA-880 external floppy drive internally - the drive is connected to the A500's DB23 external floppy connector
  • 200 watt internal power supply with monitor power connector
  • power and hard disk activity LEDs
  • does not give full A2000 capabilities to the A500 - it lacks CPU and video slots
