Myself I would've wanted cheaper hardware cost's as well but I think there may have been other reasons for choosing the Power PC as well
What do you think the mac uses? They could of built a hardware card (64bit even) that took over a mac computer. A g5 would have been a better choice then a g3 or g4. Thye probably chose a ppc because of the work already done for ppc on the addon boards for the real amiga's and the fact that they are alot closer to the old 68k then the x86 is.
