FAB now how about a real ARM Powered Portable Laptop instead of an A9 MK2 with new mini graphics cards for portables, and RISC OS now being made to work with any graphics card that you can get a driver for, any one work for nvidia 8 ) , this may seem far fetched but not if you go to a laptop manufacturer and get the parts and the just make the motherboard to fit, who know they might just make it for you after all a laptop that can run for hours and not over heat, except the Graphics card ? just think a laptop that can boot from a big memory card holding your operating system and software RISC OS, windows CE, linux, MAC OS X = linux , that would make it cheaper all round, just by your laptop and get OS of choice. as far as backward compatible the 32bit compatible software should be as long as it is not directly poking the Vidc20 chip it should work after all there are emulators, mini emulator ? and graphics cards for the riscpc but you should be thinking forward compatible, new better software now that we have an FPU the arm 7500 was ok but just a bit slow for graphics.
