Off topic but if I remember well, Dave Haynie stated that when they announced the A1200 the sales of A500/600 stalled, they didn't have enough stock of A1200s, as a result it led to dramatic financial condition so it backfired and helped to kill Commodore faster lol
A1200 was released October 1992. Commodore didn't have enough stock to deliver to everyone who wanted one, and of course sales of A600 went down. A1200 should instead have been released early 1993 with enough supply to deliver.
