Its funny to see how the Mac people still deny the fact :p I worked professionally with Amiga until the bitter end and with huge remorse replaced my maxed out Amiga 3000 and 4000s with a SUN Sparcstation 20 that cost many times more than all my Amigas together, until I discovered that X86 Linux was the way to go years later. As someone whos been working in both software and hardware I can easily say that the Amiga had the best HW layout of any computer system to date with its co-processors. The Amiga 500 demo scene still manages to squeeze out more and more out of that 7-ish Mhz 68k processor and its buddies and what other computer from that time is still being used as actively today? None. The only one to even come close is the C64, by the same company 😉 It doesnt matter how you look at it, the Amiga was a beast and it could do things no other computer could. Not all of the tasks. This is why Amiga was used in TV/Film studios for so long because it gave so much more bang for the $ compared to SGI. The fastest Mac was an Amiga.
