As is the tradition in these things parts availability dries up slowly so there is no major concern here, there is more than enough time for Castle to do some redesign the CPU part of the MB to support either later Intel chips or perhaps even CPU's with ARM11 support.

Trouble is this could represent a problem for A9Home as much (or more than) for Castle - as Castle will to some extent be expected to being an alternative design to use newer ARM parts. This may mean people will hold back from purchasing anything (A9 included) until they see what developments arise from the Castle camp.

In actual fact in the medium term this may actually *prompt* further development - not a bad thing all in all.
