I would just like to add a little spanner into this.
I am on my Second TT ( Sodl the first and thatwas a serious mistake cos it had loads of RAM - I need that now )
I am on my third Falcon ( First being 1MB, the second being 4 but with an Eclipse PCI adapter and ATI Rage ) and now my 3rd and I have bought a CT63 for it.
Naturally, I stopped using the TT and went to the Falcon to await the arrival of the CT63 and its quite stunning just how slow the Falcon feels against the TT... Everything from The display to Disk accesses is much snappier on the TT ( Although Flacon owners will argue that one )
Now, I got the CT63 and its absolutely astounding at just how much quicker the Falcon is with it... Words cannot describe it.
Now, My Falcon and/or the CT63 has some issues that I am still tryign to iron out and recently it got the better of me and I decided that the TT must be brought back into play, and so I hooked the TT back up and stripped the Falcon down to do some soldering work on it ( To try to get the CT63 stable ) and when using the TT I noticed somehting... Its a lot quicker than I htought it was.
Disk access is noticably quicker, and moving windows about in Magic was fairly smooth ( While displaying the contents that is, not just the rubber-band thingy ) and the system felt nice.
So, I have doen a few real-world comparisons, and I am tryign to work out whether I can be bothered with the Falcon at all, or just go back to my TT, and I was surprised to find, that for me, the TT is a better option.
I mostly use CuBase, and the Ct63 really shines in this, and its far quicker than the TT for doing things like copying, moving, Deleting large chunks of data etc, but for all other times, its unnoticeable.
Browsing HTML Pages is no different, except for the actual convertions, which are obviously better on the Falcon as its both quicker and of course you get 256 colours as opposed to the TT's 16
But when it comes to Disk acces, again the TT is double the speed of the Falcon, even with the CT63.
My honest opinion, is that as stock machines the only thing that the Falcon is better at, is displaying more colours. Other than that ,its awful, and as for the ability to play an MP3, then yes, the falcon can do this... But in a stock machine, dont try getting it to do much while its playing an MP3 cos its not going to do a good job of doing the 2 things at once.
Put things another way, if someone offered me a TT with a good ammount of RAM and a Graphics card for it as a swap for my Falcon-CT63-256MB, then the falcon will be gone like a shot.
MSTE @ 16Mhz : 4MB+8MB : Magic & Jinnee
TT030 @ 32Mhz : 10+16MB : Magic & Jinnee
Falcon060 @ 95Mhz : 16+512MB : MiNT & Jinnee
More PCs than PC World has... Probably
