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?

IMHO, the A1 is not meant to be a "big box" computer by your definition. It's more of a proof that a PPC Amiga motherboard is viable.
Sure you can lament that it doesn't have 15 hot-pluggable PCI slots, USB 2.0, Firewire, on-board RAID, Infiniband and a widget for hooking up your coffee maker - but it's available and it works (perhaps not flawlessly, yet), which is more than the market has ever had before, despite many promises.
