The Alpha was a disappointment but not a surprise. If I am going to run a Windows laptop then I might as well just use Windows natively and not b****r about with emulation, which loses the extra raw power that a 2GHz x86 process offers. It is a bit ironic that whilst officially RISC OS is a ROM based OS running on ARM processors, all that the RO Ltd/MD camp can offer for the future is either a) a disc based OS running on ARM processors (Select). or b) a disc based OS running via emulation on x86 processors (Alpha etc).

I suspect that in leu of a 'real' RISC OS portable ever appearing I'll end up with a Psion Netbook and my partner a portable Mac of some description.

Shame really as a portable Iyonix would be a fantastic thing to have. Cheers -- S Williams,
