Think what I meant to say was that the Iyonix was the last vestige of what could be identified as a stand-alone pc type box that runs on pure RiscOS (not emulated); a product that most people recognise as a desktop computer.
The A9Home (which is what I'll probably buy now at the SE Show), isn't readily identifiable as a desktop unit. It falls between a portable HD and a RiscOS computer. You still need to buy other external media to let it function more fully; disc readers etc. And from what I remember, you can't print from it without spending cash on 3rd party software, or by being networked to a nearby M$ PC.
Whereas the Iyonix is/was the all-singing, all-dancing big rectangular box that you plug and play on.
