... if you can find the expansions. :)

Personally I like the Intergraph on my list. Never seen one, but if
I had, I would own one by now.

As for a more common system (more common than the Intergraph, not the
Amiga), a UnixPC with 1 meg of ram, and maybe 60MB of disk will give
you access to a really decent subset of available Unix (and possibly
MS-DOS) software. It will also have a decent development environment,
given the installation of a dev kit.

On the other hand, the Atari ST plays quite a few more games. :)
