I'm definitely looking to replace my RPC, this is almost the machine to do it but there are one or two niggles that bother me. I'd love to see a version with a CD burner built in (I already have a CD/DVD USB burner for the PC, but I prefer using internal drives where possible), and a floppy drive too - no point Aemulor emulating those games perfectly if you've got nowhere to stick the copy protection disc after all.

If I got a USB floppy drive could RISC OS (and the Simtec USB stack) recognise it as ADFS :0, or would it always be a USB device (and thus presumably no good for copy protection stuff)?
