cmj: I suppose, for PCs, this depends on what the expected useful lifespan is for the machine. If you are going to upgrade and bin the old one after 5 years, the tin solder doesn't need to last too long. If you have a RISC OS machine though you're gonna have to hope that Castle and AdvantageSix start producing new machines more regularly =)

Also, I was interested in seeing the Gooooooogle Ad below stating, "Rohs Testing - Comply with RoHS and WEEE!". I'm sure a few small electronics manufacturers are weeee-ing right now. -- Spriteman
