In essence, you'll have 1MB Fastmem sitting there idle most of the time.
While I mostly agree, what you have is a system with a hard drive (CF!) and enough memory to run most games from floppy...

I would think a lot of the people who get this would love to run those games from the CF using whdload.
I'm not sure how it will hold up memory wise there...
I ran whdload on my plain unexpanded 1200 (only 2M, all CHIP) for a bit and there were games that would run. I can't remember how much couldn't tho.. (I remember disabling floppy image caching in WHDLoad to get some to work..)

Of course, that might be a good reason to add an ACA and get more memory. ;-)
