I think just a stock A1200 with some better HD and more Ram is cooler and more true to what an A1200 was meant to be tho.
The 1200 was under-spec'd when it was released. It should have had VGA output (IndivisonAGA), a CDROM drive (PCMCIA, SAMBA, etc), a better CPU (eg 030) and some more fast ram.

Believing that, and aiming for, an Amiga that is equally supreme against current IBM-compatible PC technology as the original A1000 and A500 was, is an utterly unfeasible dream.
I agree, without a massive amount of investment you would not be able to make a MB as ground breaking as the original A1000 (and of course you'd also need a massive marketing budget). The only 2 options for the Amiga 'market' going forward is a 'reasonably' powerful MB with a resource-light OS (eg what the SAM is becoming) or to just port the OS to 'common HW' and go head-to-head with Linux, Windows and MacOS.
