My Kinetic RiscPC is a great machine that I've use for an average of, I guess, five hours a day for the four years since I bought it new. It's fast, responsive, and a joy to use and has never exhibted a hardware fault of any kind. So, I'm really, really happy with it. My previous was an A5000 so it was a big step up for me that rekindled my passion for RISC OS.

Iyonix - yes, I want. I'm told Iyonix is, on average, between two and four times faster than Kinetic.

VRPC - I'm writing RISC OS software that I want to know is 100% going to work properly with VRPC. It's in BBC BASIC so it'll also be fun to see what actually writing code under VRPC is like. My 12 year old daughter will end up with the VRPC machine as her school is 95% MicroSoft. Incidentally, why oh why is the British government so completely pushing MicroSoft products ? I've never seen so many new computers (60 ?)as have just been installed in her state comprehensive school and they are all American.
