The XMOS chips are potentially interesting, and I'd encourage anyone who is interested to buy one, in the form of an XMOS official developer board from under $100.
A-Eon on the other hand (it will come as no surprise in this thread) is yet another tiny company making announcements with old brand names. About 1.5 years ago now they announced the imminent arrival of their mysterious AmigaOne X1000 (they have a license to the name 'AmigaOne' via a similar chain of dodgy business deals to those described earlier).
Mid last year they announced that lucky "beta testers" would get to hand over a large quantity of money via irreversible international funds transfer to have the opportunity to buy the unfinished and as-yet untested bare motherboard for the X1000.
Some unknown number of people "applied" by sending money and filling out forms acknowledging that they're not consumers under EU law, and most recently A-Eon has seen fit to release some poor quality photographs of a handful of these boards being manufactured. Will some of the people get their chance to "beta test" this product? Sure, it could happen.
The device itself is a fairly uninteresting dual-core PowerPC system of the sort Apple were unable to get shrunk down into laptops fast enough to retain customer interest last decade before they went Intel. Plus an XMOS chip is included on the motherboard for no particularly good reason except that it encourages rationalising of the sort jwmittag attempted - the Commodore Amiga had custom chips, and this is a customisable chip, so it's kinda similar?
