Predictable new machine response:

(Commentary on stuff said here and on usenet)

People complain it's too expensive, despite being significantly cheaper than the Iyonix, which is already heavily discounted under the current offer.

People complain its graphics are too slow despite it being clearly said its graphics acceleration is being worked on.

John Cartmell goes on endlessly trying to impress upon us how much he knows about it, although ultimately not really saying very much.

It immediately draws comparisons with the Mac Mini because that happens to be similarly priced and also small, even though that's clearly not a RISC OS computer (except via emulation) nor aimed at the same market instead of the obvious competitor - the Iyonix.

Yawn :-|

Perhaps in time some accurate information might start to be bandied about instead. I await in anticipation - not because what has been said by AD6/DRobe isn't comprehensive, but because the above things get real tiresome.
