Smiler: "either an A9home, which is just a computer"

It's not a computer, it's a way of life :-)

"keyboard, mouse"

Actually, both are included in the price.

Yes the Mac mini is cheaper, but you would struggle to get three of /those/ plus monitor, CD/DVD drive, USB toys, keyboards, power supplies, mice, forty brochures and (presumably) other things into airline hand luggage, which is what Stuart managed.

The main worry from the price point of view is that A9home plus CD/DVD drive comes to 680ukp inc VAT, whilst the cheapest Iyonixes start at 799ukp inc VAT.

But, as Stuart said himself, "if you want a standard size desktop RISC OS computer, go and buy an Iyonix!" The A9home is aimed at a different market. (Which includes many people who already own an Iyonix).

gj: "disappointment at having to wait another 6 months to a year".

Stuart may have been slightly misheard there. He answered "definitely" when asked if the retail version would be on sale within a year, and answered exactly the same when asked if it would be on sale within six months.
