Ok, I´ll try to answer the first part of your post too

With a good equipped Amiga setup (and I do NOT mean an out-of-the-box A4000 for example) you will not come accross ANY so called "Killer-App"

Well, you may be able to do the same things as you do with your Mac/PC system but most things are a lot slower .....

For example there´s still no Office Pack available for Amiga .... and still no Amiga Browser with Java etc.

If you want to buy an Amiga to REPLACE your Mac/PC .... just don´t do it because you will be disappointed for sure .....

I have done this, since my PC broke down, I´m currently only using my old, trusty A2000 with 060 CPU and my A4000 with 040 CPU but it´s a lot fiddling around with slow and incompatible Software ....

I can of course listen to mp3´s and watch movies, but the quality and speed is a bit ...... uhmmmmm ...... bad ....

And of course I can play games, but I´m limited to one or two new games that come out in a year ..... that´s not the point for me cause I love playing the old games on my A500 anyway

In my opinion, working with an Amiga is still more fun than working with MacOS/Linux/Windows but you need to be stress proved and you must be able to spend a LOT of money to get a REALLY FAST Amiga system (PPC, PCI, USB, whatever) .......

An Amiga is a good computer, but if you want it to replace any other Computer setup ..... you really have to be an Amiga Fanatic
