Who cares if they didnt design it? I dont. Do you think anyone cares? The fact is, they wanted to bring the Amiga community quality hardware, and they did.

I dont see any problems if they had designed it or not. I think Eyetech diserves all the credit they get. At least we've got a new computer to talk about now. Thats something we didnt have for 10 years (with or without OS4)

Hmm, interesting. 16 to keep for warranty reasons for every batch of 200 to be sold?

Like I said, that is the minimum order quantity of G4 CPU's you can get for Motorola.

@HyperionMP

And what does that have to do with the price of tea in china?

Genesi ordered over 1000 G3's and over 200 G4's, but have only made half into computers so far.  The rest are in their nice shipping packages, ready to be assembled into Peg II's.

@DanDude

A more logical assumption is ill-timed good intentions.

A great example being the t-shirt hoax from a few weeks ago.

A bunch of well-meaning folk wanted to "keep the faith alive" so they perpetuated a hoax.  Same thing was done here.  Reminds me of these villages in south america that claim "Virgin Mary" sightings to revitalize the faith in the town, and get the catholic church to recognize them.

I think you mixed up Eyetech with Genesi, it's the Pegasos board that needed to be exchanged some times (and still does for G4).

It seems, some people are able to sell the stuff they are producing, others don't; so what's your point?

Normally, the chips should be checked for faults before being built into a board. Presumably the extra 16 are Motorola's way of avoiding niggling warranty exchanges. However that does suggest a chip failure rate of 8% on leaving the factory. Eurgh.
