Good news then on a number of fronts. It's understantable that RO5.XX upgrades are now chargeable items as support for newer Video cards and USB 2 (with Isosynch ????) are in the offing. Also purchasers know that the upgrades exist before they buy (rather than subscribe in advance as is the Select model).

As to the RoHS stuff the original article was a classic red-herring, the components used are available in RoHS compliant variants, the motherboard need not be redesigned *at all*, all it requires is Lead free "thinning" and the use of RoHS compliant components.

martin>No redesign is required.... if you use RoHS compliant, pin compatible parts, and a motherboard that simply uses an appropriate substrate (a complaint one) and no lead in its construct then the whole thing would work like the Iyonix but be RoHS compliant (other than upping the PCB version number no other changes should be required). That having been said it would be *nice* if we could get an uprated machine.
