Too right. The new hardware is overpriced, but sadly that's unavoidable. For me to upgrade from RO3.71 to RO4 with Select would cost me 299. Even the Windows XP upgrade price is less than that! Plus, if I want any bugfixes after the first year, I need to pay around 150. Windows is considered expensive, I'm rapidly discovering that RISC OS is extortinate in comparison - no amount of wooing tatics and Alpha portables are going to change that.
