You do know Commodore designed, made, and sold X86 desktop clones anyway don't you? The only part not off the shelf for a PC was its BIOS and that was cloned ages before Commodore went bankrupt (Compaq and their 286 clones). My point is to make them small and integrated like the A500 systems while using a ported and expanded version of Amiga OS to make them better then just a PC while being cheaper as well.

Look at todays Mac, outside of the case design and OS its just an X86 PC, and will run Windows if you need it to. Now picture a DOS era machine in a nicer case running DOS apps in an Amiga OS window. Hell OS/2 could do it.
