Exactly! The most 'sensible' machine for just retro gaming could be an 'AGA-capable A600'. Compact form factor, with external CF or WiFi over PCMCIA, and no hassle finding the right connector when in the need for swapping Joysticks.
Still, the A500 is IMHO the most beautiful machine, regarding board layout and casing! I just love it.
