Castle introduces Iyonix cubeBy Chris Williams. Published: 1st Aug 2005, 15:48:38 | Permalink | Printable
Cheap and cheerfulCastle have updated their range of RISC OS 5, XScale powered Iyonix computers, with the addition of a Aria Cube and X300 series of cases.
All machines still feature the usual 600Mhz IOP321 fitted motherboards. The Aria Cube Iyonix with a CD-RW drive, 80G hard disc and 256M of RAM is priced at 799 quid, which we believe is the lowest yet for a non-special offer Iyonix. However this only includes email based after sales support and does not include software such as Oregano 2, Writer+ and spreadsheet FireWkz32 that are usually bundled for free - these cost a further 100 quid. It's possible that the Aria Cube is aimed at punters looking for a second Iyonix or a RISC OS computer to complement other machines.
The new X300 is touted as a "compact, quiet, mini tower system with room for expansion", and starts at 999 quid again with a 80G hard disc and 256M of RAM.
All prices include VAT and exclude delivery, and all machines are shipped with a USB based memory card reader. The Iyonix was publicly launched in November 2002, and recently gained USB 2 support in February this year.
