Not even talking about how much nicer the 68k was to program for, with 32-bit instructions, 17 registers, etc... And not even getting into the amiga's ultra-tight-knit custom chipset or all the amazing amiga-only peripherals that came out at the time...

The 68020 beat the 386 in most benchmarks at the same clock rate.

Maybe you didn't live through that era? If I had to live through that period 500 times, I would choose even an A500 over the best 386 machine 500 times.
Let's just agree to disagree. I think the 386 was vastly superior to the 020, and maybe even to the 030.
