robroy: Castle do not claim the Iyonix has working USB on the motherboard, they provide a PCI USB solution. Equally, they don't claim it has PS/2 ports. Neither of those things suggest the Iyonix is unfinished - they suggest that it may not have all the things you would like from a machine.

Just because the Omega has turned up to another show and MD are claiming some crazy "We can't sell computers we've spent a couple of years designing to customers who paid for them almost that long ago" NDA we can't just pretend that the machine is now finished and working.

When (and if) the production Omegas are delivered to paying customers, it will be on an equal footing with the Iyonix. Then, and only then, will the Omega be a "contender" or possibly even a "good quality computer". -- Antony Sidwell
