I noticed the A3000 has an internal scan doubler too, is that not a bit of a killer feature - meaning you can run WB at high res yet still play OCS/AGA games on WHDLoad?
V6 is the only way to go, mine does 30mpg, 0-60 in 7 seconds and 140 mph. Plus you can pick up a really nice one for 5-6k. 54 platers are only 7-8k. Who's having a guess?
