@TrevorDick

Hi Trevor,

I could be interested to your AmigaOne, BUT sure I want three (3 or more) ages of warranty with this hardware AX1000, if not sure I'll not buy it...
An "AmigaCare" included in the itself hardware is very important beacause probably We need much time before this AX1000 could be FULL supported in the OS4.x.

What do you think about this ???


thanks
regards

@divina

3 ages?
That's a loooong warranty.. A-eon will certainly not (I would guess) give such
a long warranty. Maybe an eon though?

My guess is the standard 1 year. Why would you require 3 years, which is way
more than any other hardware producer gives?

Here in Sweden we have up to 3 years consumer protection anyway, kind of like
warranty but not quite. If something breaks which should not, consumers are
protected.

I believe standard is 3 years here in norway. And anyone who wants to market/sell a product within norway would have follow that standard or they would be breaking the law.

@Samwel

yes 3 ages sure ... many brands hardware (es. HP, IBM ...etc...) give 3 ages of warranty for "high hardware" and the hardware is supported very well in OS.
Other, for exemple Apple, 3 ages with a simple AppleCare pack...

With AX1000 It's important to have more then 1 age of warranty because sure for many time you could not use dual-core with AmigaOS4.x, and probably you need to wait time for a good 2D and 3D with PCIe (not PCI) graphic card ... so Do you want to wait "ages" to make betatester of AX1000 without 3 ages of warranty ??? Sure I not ... if It has 3 ages or more of warranty OK I can think to buy it but with only 1 age sure NOT...

I wait the answare of Mr. Trevor Dick about this important question (thanks for the answare Trevor).

thanks
regards

I am not 100% sure, but i personally think it would indeed affect the costs a bit.
It also hurts computer/electronic stores if the manufactor refuses to abide norwegian laws, as it is then the store that has to shell out for repairs/replacement product.

as it seems that x1000 is using server grade parts, 3 year warranty might not be out of reach. IMHO.

Warranty shouldn't be an issue on the purchase of an A1X1K. Most businesses fail the first year. The odds that A-Eon will be around in 3 are pretty remote even if their product is great and has no major issues. The majority of support will probably come from fellow users on this website and others anyway.

If there is some kind of hardware flaw that crops up, A-Eon is going to do what any small company that's only standing on one leg would do after making a big gamble on the first production, slam the doors shut and fold to cut loses.

@thread and especially the A-EON Technology Website Designer(s)

OK, NOW that it has been pointed out to me what it *could* be, heavens, possibly the slide out, erm, 'header bit' could be another shape? Because you don't want people to mock your web design, do you? You've obviously put a lot of work into it, so, this just goes to show that a rethink might be in order, if your target audience perceives it that way, yes? This 'teaser site' site LOOKS neat and clean, and the navigation is simple and straightforward , so possibly consider a different approach to avoid the references to, um, what has been referred to? Unless that was the original intent, because in that case, it's worked.

Also this: a religious icon painting which just goes to show that there a lot of men (and women, supposedly) still thinking like little boys drawing knobs on pencil cases...

AND... a quick joke. Question: How many actors does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer: 101. One to actually change it and the other one hundred to stand around and say, "Oh! I could have done that much better!" "Did you see the horrid way he approached the subject! Shocking!" "We did it much differently at The Old Vic" "Huh! Where's his motivation?" "Amateur... just amateur"

Now, replace "actors" with "Web Designers"....

Superb pessimistic view, again.
It's not an miracle nowdays if Amiga HW company is alive after three years.

There are such examples, like ACube, Genesi/bplan, Elbox, etc...

It's not a pessimistic view, it's a realistic one. Acube and Genesi sell products and services in other markets. Not sure about Elbox, would it show any signs of life if I gave it a kick?

Your statements really help a lot to save our platform....thank you, thank you, thank you koft....you're a big man! - I'm so glad you are around to help make things look much brighter for the Amiga community. You should apply for a job in one of the companies who's trying to bring back the Amiga name....I'm sure they would be delighted to hear from you, and all your positive vibes!

IMHO you need only look at his latest Moo Bunny thread to understand what his opinion of our platform is.

You most be mistaken I have seen lots of computer sold whit just 1 year warranty, and I know because I'm Norwegian, but does it matter its not going to be sold in Norway, you will need to get from Sweden or England or Germany (EU laws), Norway is bound by the ES agreement, in other words its where likely that we have same laws as in the EU.

Elkjp provides insurance if you pay a little extra but it is not the same as a guarantee.

@mike

I know TV's and monitors have 5 years but that's more of a exception, whit warrants like that there is no point in providing customer repair service.

@Tomas and Mike

Maybe if you have the time you can find the section that is written in the “kjps loven” (consumer laws)
