Benchmarks are all very well, but I'm going to wait for some reviews of what the various machines feel like in use before parting with my cash. Even then, I grew up using Acorn, I understand what's going on when it goes wrong and can usually put it right. The thought of relying on something that I don't deep down understand is of little attraction. Don't get me wrong, I think VRPC is a technically brilliant probuct but it's probably not for an oldie like me. I was genuinely impressed when I saw Virtual A5000 running an application I'd written straight off and without any problem though.
