Iyonix price slash offer, yawns stifledBy Chris Williams. Published: 2nd Sep 2004, 19:30:34 | Permalink | Printable
A panther that is positively still over a grandOver two months after the Merlin project ended its consultation process, Castle have announced yet another, apparently "fantastic", Iyonix special offer.
The price slash means you can save 200 quid on a Panther TC model of their now classic Iyonix range, provided you order this month. The Panther TC features the usual 600MHz XScale processor, RISC OS 5, 1GB of DDR RAM and 240GB of hard disc storage. Castle also have an LCD monitor offer going too, at the moment.
We're wondering just how much mileage is left in the Iyonix, which will, in terms of public awareness, turn two years old next month: is the design going to be another RiscPC beast, stumbling on and on for the next ten years?
After enticing us with tales of porting the RISC OS kernel to yonder ARM9, we're looking forward more to concrete announcements of new processor support, rather than, say, special offers aimed at users who either already have an Iyonix, or are waiting for a price slash that's substantially more than 12 percent.
