    > Question is how much of that is just hidden OS-costs (OEM fees/licenses).

    You mean beside the openly stated OS4 OEM costs paid to Hyperion?

    > out of the suggested price differential of 1200-1400€ between X5000
    > and Tabor how much is due to the better SoC

    The price difference of the SoC alone is 150 to 200 EUR.

    > where in hell did the remaining 1195-1395€ go !!!!

    A-Eon says the A1222/Tabor will be sold at cost, opposed to the X5000/Cyrus. I guess that one product cross-subsidizes the other product.

    Yes, essentially what ASiegel said in comment #20, except that OS4 would have to be hacked to run on the Peg1 (not the other way round) :-)
