Amiga 1400

Developer: Commodore
Year of intended launch: 1993

This information is reputed to have come from a hardware beta tester at Commodore who was actually testing the machine out. He claimed the machine was originally intended to be launched in November 1993, retailing at £100 more than the A1200 (about £500), but due to Commodores funding problems this was not possible.

The machine was based upon a 68020 processor running at either, 25 or 28MHz, and used the AGA chipset. Unlike the A1200 it would have came in some kind of desktop unit with an external Amiga keyboard, and include 2MB chip ram and 2MB fast ram, as well as an 80MB hard drive and high density drive as standard. It would have also used the PCMCIA slot found in the A1200.

In my opinion this sounds like a low-end Walker machine. It's possible that Escom simply used some of Commodores designs in its production, whilst updating the power and expandability of the machine.
