I think the total amount I sank into my A4000T, which has a 56MHz '060, Ethernet, a Picasso IV RTG card, a Jaz and a CD-ROM, was about $1700. Don't get me wrong, I like the machine, I enjoy AmigaOS on a conceptual level, and the unit is fun to mess around with. But I don't get a lot out of it other than playing WHDLoad games and fiddling with NetSurf, and if I want a PowerPC-based computer, I have Power Macs already that do substantially more and do it faster for much less money.
I still think the Amiga could have been really special, but that time was 1987, when Commodore had their heads so far up their corporate recta that they could see out their own eyeballs.
On a brighter note, I have a crapload of Solbourne stuff on the way in. Let's hope it arrives better than that S3000 did.
