Let's just hope they sell enough so we can get our deposits (and full payments) back and go off and use it to buy something portable that doesn't use Windows.

My only hope comes from the 'Castle Buys RISC OS' FAQ as published in Archive Sept 03 (and elsewhere earlier). Otherwise time to look elsewhere for a mobile computing solution.

Quoting from Archive (inc typos etc ;o) Question: 'Is anyone working on an ARM laptop now? Answer; As with previous attempts, the major stumbling block is sourcing a case which has a long enough lifespan to be able to ensure continued supply. This doesn't rule out the possibility of selecting one of the many ready-made A4 sized industrial tablets based on fast ARM9 and XScale technology.
