We need more of these "Lost Computers" threads I've started on machines such as the Falcon, X68000 and Sam Coupe.
From my limited knowledge, the Falcon brought the ST up to and even slightly beyond Amiga standards with it's 030, added blitter (finally!), decent colours and sound chip.
The X68000 I'm just becoming familiar with and I have to say I'm impressed.
Finally, the SAM Coupe must be one of the most powerful 8-BIT's ever made. More so than the top of the range MSX?
