The Commodore Amiga Sidecar

The Commodore A1060 Sidecar was an expansion hardware device developed by Commodore and released in 1986 for the Commodore Amiga 1000 computer. It would feature a complete PC XT system mounted in an expansion case which connected to the expansion bus on the right side (like a sidecar) of the Amiga 1000 computer.

The Sidecar was built around an Intel 8088 processor. The Sidecar was available with a hard drive, the first produced by Commodore for the Amiga, it was accessible from both the MS-DOS and AmigaOS environments.
