My A1200 recently died, and all I can say is that I'm ordering a refurbished A1200 from Amigakit, and next year I'll probably get an old stock, and another refurbished one so I'll have Amigas around for a long time to come, and I won't regret spending all that money for a single second.

So would I. Happily, in fact. Hobbies one gets a lot of enjoyment from are certainly worth spending money on
I couldn't agree more - I love my A1200, I'd run through brick walls for it, and I don't regret the money I've spent. BUT, chipset compatibility in a new piece of hardware alone doesn't Validate/justify that hardware, it is merely "more of the same" with a few tweaks, not some massively new "thing" that it seems to be being hyped as.
