jgzimmerle: I find that a rather specious argument. Firstly, your original implication of "upgrades" was clearly about hardware that added addition functionality, and one that's always used when talking about them - processor upgrades, expansion cards, peripherals etc. Those two examples certainly don't fall into that.

Secondly, no, they aren't the equivalent of upgrades of those items on the Iyonix, because Castle wisely chose industry standard parts, which _already_ worked properly, and therefore did not need field upgrades to perform at a level they should have at release.
