In reply to md0u80c9:

Hmm, good point. I still use floppies, but there's no reason I couldn't use my USB stick for copying files instead (I'm a tight wad, I don't like the principle of using CDs as disposable transfer even if the price is microscopic ;) ). I've tried using copy protection breaking programs before, unfortunately I've never had much success with them. I've had even less success in setting up a home network :(

The lack of an internal optical drive is still a minus for me. I use my PC and RPC side by side on a KVM/USB switch, having USB devices that need dismounting on that switch is a real pain. Still, the A9 is looking really promising, I hope it can use its copious (for a RISC OS machine) VRAM well. I use the RPC mainly for image editing, so if the A9 does well there (and having the latest OS is a big plus for me, I'll spend 600GBP for a new computer and new OS, I'm much more reluctant to spend 150GBP for a new OS on its own) then I'll almost certainly get one.
