"I mean, back then you would have to put up some good €3500 Euros or so for a 386 system (when the 386 was launched)! "
When I bought my CBM64 + tape drive, some other preferred Atari without any mass strorage (and it cost more, IIRC).
When I bought A500, the PCXT might have been slightly more expensive (with B&G monitor).
When I bought my A2000 + HDD etc., some of my friends went for 8Mhz 286 PC/AT which were also cheaper ( I was also adviced to go there ).
When I bought my A4000/25Mhz + HDD, 386/40 and 486/25 were about 50% cheaper.
When I bought my CS060/50, Pentium 100Mhz machine cost less.
When CSPPC~200mhz came available it cost more than a P200 PC.
"What you *should* compare (if price levels is what you want to compare) is what MiniITX boards costs in *2005*, and what features and performance they offer for that price!"
No! (IMHO, though!)
As long as you want to continue with AmigaOS, you either stay with the classic Amigas or buy AmigaOS4 compatible HW. So, for AOS4, we can only compare between other A1 models.
(if you just want to continue with "any" OS that somehow looks like AmigaOS, you have more options, like VIA + AROS without any SW base)
