Matt's LG2000 Multi-Media built 10/30/1993

The Legend 2000 Multi-Media was a computer manufactured between 1993 and 1994.

It came in multiple versions, using both the 4x4 case seen here, as well as the 3x3 Design v1 case, a Post-FOT 3x3 Design v2 Early Wavy case, and possibly others.

In some models it was sold with a 486SX/25, in others, a 486SX/33.

The machine was later sold as the Legend 2000 Plus Multi-Media with a 486SX-33 in a 3x3 Design v2 FOT/Frog Early Wavy Case and replaced the PB420 with a PB430 board.

The Picture at right shows Matt's LG2000 MM in a 4x4 Design v2 Pre-FOT case using a PB420 Rev C motherboard, the machine was manufactured on October 30, 1993.

This machine is almost identical to his first PB computer, the only difference being that his was a FORCE (Non-Multimedia) with a larger HDD and this is a Multi-Media, with a smaller 170MB HDD.
