In reply to Becky

If you can't afford an Iyo or an A9 (neither can I at the moment), it's well worth buying a 2nd-hand StrongARM RiscPC on Ebay.

I bought one 18 months ago and got an immediate speed increase of 3-4 times. You ought to be to get a good one for about £100-150 and the extra speed and responsiveness makes using RISC OS much more enjoyable.

Just make sure you get one with RISC OS 4.39 instead of 3.7 as it will save you the bother of having to reformat your hard drive.
