I regret Commodore/Amiga didn't live into the PPC era. Mostly because I want the 68K models to be cheaper, which they would be if there were PPC models for "users". Anything 68040 is kind of pricey.

You can install WHDload onto a normal IDE hard drive (that is what I did). A Blizzard IV 68030/50 is the best accelerator for just playing old games (stick a 32MB 72 pin SIMM in it).

Either one is pretty expensive to expand beyond an 040 processor. I would think a processor upgrade for the 4000 is more expensive then the 1200.
