That maybe, but no-one buys new ones. Everyone (?) buys reclaimed ones from old telecoms equipment for ~$60 each

In the UK you can get a full A4000 inc case & PSU for ~$200, the 060 for ~$60 but it is the CPU slot (a3k/A4k) 060 accelerator cards themselves which costs the bucks.

You can get an A1200 + 060 for well under $600.

But we are not really comparing apples with apples. Any new board is going to have some advantages over classic hardware. Form Factor for example, the one redeeming feature of MiniMig v1.1 PCB.
