Not without an ARM board to replace the PIC you cannot because there is no HDD support without one. The ARM boards sell for roughly 4x the price of a second hand A600

If you include the purchase price of the MiniMig then add the ARM board & the RAM you could probably have bought an A1200 + RAM card + Indivision A1200 scandoubler.

Oh, and quite a few demos and games on MiniMig have corruption due to incorrect FPGA code.

MiniMig will be great once the price of general purpose media FPGA boards come down. It's legacy is that it is open-source and re-usable.
