The RISC PC when it was launched was an extremely expensive computer, however, it had the staying power than the cheap 486 pcs available at the time could not even dream of. However, imes have moved on, the entry level model is now a very basic machine, USB, Graphics Cards and Networking all being optional extras. Thank God for Castle and the Iyonix PC, which might be another extremely expensive machine, but it is one that people will still be using ten years from now. In the ned, you get what you pay for.
