True, but if we're being honest neither of them should've been released. Replacing the A500+ with the A600 is like rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic as they say.

If Commodore had taken R&D seriously from the beginning, the A1200 could've been released two years early. Then an 030 or 040 version to follow alongside, neatly plugging the price gap between the A1200 and A4000 and ushering the Amiga into the 3D era... Of course, none of that happened.

I can see the appeal of a small machine like the A600 now, especially where partners don't want 25 year old computers taking up valuable space. I do love the overall look of the A500/+ much better than either the A600 or A1200 though and if I get one of these, it will be to put in an A500+ case.
