Sam460 customers can return AmigaOS 4.1 and get a refund
Three weeks ago, MorphOS 3.8 has been released, including support for the Sam460 motherboards from ACube. Now the Italian hardware vendor reacts to this development and offers his customers a refund if they want to return their copy of AmigaOS 4.1: If you return your AmigaOS DVD to ACube, ACube will pay you 48 Euros.

The exact conditions for the refund are listed in a PDF file that is linked to from ACube's webshop:
  • The refund is only available for "AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition OEM" and needs to be requested no more than 30 days after purchase of the hardware
  • the DVD package is unopened and still shrinkwraped
  • The customer returns the DVD to ACube at his own costs and also pays any additional paypal or bank fees required for returning the money to him
  • To avoid the additional costs and the hassle of sending the DVD back to ACube, customers can request a refund immediately after ordering the hardware, bevore it's even processed at ACube
All Sam460 variants are still available only as a bundle with AmigaOS 4.1 though. The fact that ACube keeps referring to a "refund" even if it's clear new customers can pretty much buy a motherboard and request the 'refund' at the same time and that the company explains in detail why they're offering a refund - including a link to the EU guidelines on "Unfair Commercial Practices" suggests that ACube's contractually obligated to always sell a copy of AmigaOS 4.1 with their Hardware.

It's currently unknown if the refund will also be available when purchasing a Sam460 through another dealer. (cg)
