mavhc you may well find that the new RISCube ultras in the press release use less power than the Iyonix. And run quieter. And from what I've read on the Iyonix mailing list, boot times are similar, and indeed may favor the RISCube! Please don't judge products without at least spending significant time using them. As an aside, in hundreds of RISCubes we've so far only had one virus incident. In the same space of time, I've had to help more virused RiscPC owners (ex-school machines can be quite a problem). This may not be typical, but since machines now ship fully protected, so far it's been plain sailing.
