martin: If it was Iyonix spec, and had a 1280x1024 screen, and cost 2000ukp, I imagine Kell would buy at least ten. So that's twelve sold before we even got going...

I'm still amazed that all these dealers think people are going to leap to buy Windows laptops with RISC OS emulators, with unproven RISC OS performance, high heat output and low battery life. And some of the laptops they're selling are well over 1000ukp!! Presumably each individual dealer didn't really expect that competition (in the form of other dealers doing the same) would happen.

(One wonders if they talk to each other).
