A very interesting article. I think the tables at the end of it really highlight the problem with the A9 - for well under 1/2 the price of an A9 home I can get a machine which is not only smaller but also has a vastly superiour spec (and a finished OS ;) ) . Don't get me wrong, I think that the advantage six boys have done a wonderful job in creating the A9 home and the high price reflects the fact that it is a small market.... but I just do not see how it could ever compete more widely or attract outside users, in its current form and price.
