VRPC is, of course, a problem for Castle's pricing policy.

Having said that, isn't there already a faster Xscale (800mhz IIRC), so they could surely bring that in at say, 1100 with a big HD and high RAM, and bring down the 600mhz to 800.

Alternatively, they should go back to the self build option. An Iyonix motherboard for (400 about the price of a high-end PC motherboard) would tempt many users and Castle could issue an easy 'no support' disclaimer. For me, and I'm sure many other users, that would be effectively a RISC OS 5 32bit machine for 400 (I have a 40gb IDE drive from a G4, a huge ATX case with PSU and an 8x sony CDROM currently going to waste).
