> a T2080 is only about $150 more than a P1022...
Current pricing at distributors looks different than years ago. Lowest single-quantity prices I can find now are about 100 USD for 1.2 GHz P1022 and about 200 USD for 1.8 GHz T2080. Seems P1022 price has about doubled over the years, but I believe A-Eon stocked up with P1022 chips when it was still cheap.

Yes, it's just there's no work on board design started yet that could be adapted for anything.
> a specific chassis was discussed awhile ago.
This may be, but a week ago there was still no decision arrived at, as reported in the linked status update.
