Due to the high acceptance of the A3000 and in response to complaint that there was insufficient space for expansion internally, it was quickly followed by a tower version which had greater expansion capability within the box, and the result was an enormous unit on par with servers of the time. It had 5 expansion bays and a beefed up power supply, but it didn't really make it big due to some strange licensing issue which held it back, and halted production in some parts of the world. Those who did get their hands on one probably still have it.
