Commenting a recent news item on amiga-news.de, Davy Wentzler of OS4 fame said the on-board sound of the AmigaOne does not work, furthermore explaining the chip is physically not present on AmigaOnes produced the last 9 months.
Frank Gutschow said on 05-Mär-2004, 23:38: "Meines erachtens sollte definitiv wirklich ersteinmal der Onboard-Chip des AmigaOne unterstützt werden."
Davy Wentzler answered on 05-Mär-2004, 23:45: "I'm gonna say it once more: it doesn't work. There's even a big chance, the chip is not physically present anymore on boards manufactured in the past 9 months."
Will Eyetech exchange all defect and component missing AmigaOnes or will they refund users that received broken hardware?

"> This is one way in which the AmigaOne is inferior to the A2000 and even the
> A4000 (which has 4 independent slots and a video slot).
I would disagree. The A2000/4000 may have had more slots, yes, but the A1 has on-board Ethernet and USB - much more useful than an extra slot, IMHO."
That frees one slot (occupied by Ethernet card in A2000). I think there should be 5 or 6 free slots (not shared with AGP) in a serious desktop computer. The A4000 is badly limited by having only four slots, in my experience.
I do think there is a use, and a market, for a small non-expandable model like A500 or MicroA1, as well. But your "big box" needs plenty of slots, and every known socket, legacy and otherwise.
