The computer technology used today isn't that much different. It is faster, smaller in size/bigger in capacity and cheaper. Even C= used FPGA technology, for example, but they would have paid tens of thousands of dollars for what would be slow and tiny FPGAs by today's standards. An Amiga made today with modern technology is likely what the Amiga would have developed into, at least without C= management messing it up. The bigger questions for me are how high of tech could we afford to go and how many people would want one. The Natami is pretty close to what I would imagine a more modern Amiga to be and drew a lot of interest (728,580 views of the Natami "MX Bringup Thread") but I guess there were too many of these types of questions.

The Amiga 1000 wasn't perfect but it was the most innovative and revolutionary Amiga model ever made. C= failed not because it attempted to "bring forward" a platform that was perfectly fine but because it failed to adequately bring the platform forward.
