And sorry for sounding like an idiot, but was there any good reason why the ECS chipset was designed and released in the first place? Because I don't see one.
The 2000 & 3000 were excellent machines. Why would you wanna get rid of those?! The 2000 in particular was highly sought after for Video Toaster solutions.
Nah, the 500+ & CDTV were the biggest mistakes. The 600 was interesting and gave the aging 500 a significant upgrade... although yeah, I would've skipped the 600 and just gone full blown AGA with the 1200 rather than ECS.
It's a shame the 4000 didn't use the better A3000+ board which was scrapped for a cheaper design.
CD32 was far better than the CDTV and actually pretty useful when you added on the SX32 for example...
