        The 2500 is basically the 2000 shipped with either an '020 or
'030 CPU vice the original 68000. Otherwise there's little
difference. The Colt was Commodore's XT-clone so no, the
keyboard/mouse from the Colt will not work with the 2500. Keyboards
and mice aren't all that hard to locate, at least on the 'net, but
they tend to be a little pricey compared to what you probably think
they should go for.
