dgs: "Who told you that?" No-one specific - just a feeling
Anyway, comparing the A9Home directly with the Iyonix doesn't seem too favourable to the A9Home. Roughly:
Pros: small & nice looking, "luggable", ~20% cheaper
Cons: lack of expansion possibilities (esp wrt USB2), relatively poor performance
I guess you're saying that we *shouldn't* consider a direct comparison, because the people who'll buy an A9Home are from a different population to those who'd buy an Iyonix - but what distinguishing characteristics do you see those people having?
