I've got an A500 (+A570 and A590, tho you can't use both at once - mildly
annoying), an A1200 and a B2000.

The 2000 has the original A2088 bridgeboard, which is basically an 8088
based XT on a zorro II card, which hooked into the ISA slots on the amiga
motherboard to allow you to use PC cards - but with a 4.77MHz 8088 - yes,
it was slow :&) There was also an A2286, which would be the 286 you were
talking about. I don't know the specs of the top of my head, but 12MHz
seems to ring a bell somewhere.
