"Surely the cost on RISC OS hardware is not the actual harware (compare the price of Arm chips to Dual Cores) but the 'share' of the development costs for the software?"

Arm chips maybe cheap but with Risc OS you have to get the design, development and testing costs back from a small market. Thats why the overall machines are not cheap. It will be interesting to see if Castle decide to dip their toes in again with a new Lyonix or not.
