    Getting processors has never been the problem. It's getting a board developed and built is the expensive built.
    Add in this cost and you suddenly understand why the OS4 guys send so much for what are basically very low end boards (and I'm not even talking about the X1000).

    At the sorts of volumes you can sell to MorphOS users building your own makes no financial sense. OTOH going with the existing systems (i.e. Macs) makes a lot of sense.
