Always a possibility of course. However I am less interested in the difference between the price compared to other systems, than getting the price as low as possible.
By increasing it from £200 to £800 I am quartering the number of units an organisation could buy, and possibly quartering the number of people who could afford even a single unit.
Of course this doesn't stop the bundle with an A9 being an optional product for those who want it, but one must still ask - could I emulate it on another portable machine for less?
The emulation option allows the system to promote RISC OS without extra expense.
