that's because you need to make a superior motherboard, otherwise few ppl will buy it
add for free USB if not pcmcia is included,
add for free a sacandoubler
add for free a wireless lan
add a socket for the 040 and 060 and simm to add fast memory
add a basic p96 gfx card
then you can sell it in 300 or 350 instead 200 then amiga fans will buy it
