The last time I checked, the going price for a 1200 was osmehting like
$575. For that you got a 14mhz 68020, 2 megs ram, and a 80 (maybe 60) meg
HD. Nowhere near being competitive to either a Nintendo or even a PC!

PLus, software is extremely expensive and relatively hard to find (You
have to know where to look)
