Hey are you sure those dates are right, I thought I had my A3000 when I started GCSEs, and it was practically new then, and the RPC600 was nowhere to be seen, I'm 26 now, so that's what '93, oh that's right I guess. I must have got the SA-RiscPC for 6th form, in about '96, it was one of the first Mk3 boards with SA202K and 3.70, got my Clan discount, wow so that's 8 years old then!

I then got a 233T/4.02 in 2000 I guess, that was a Castle machine, not a J233, I'd just left CJE Micro's but still got my staff discount! ;)

Both of them are still going strong (one of them has a tendancy to eat HD's) after many hardware/OS upgrades and overclocking abuse, in fact I cherished the *two slice* 202 so much, that I brought it with me to California on the plane as hand luggage 3 years ago (whilst the PC's got destoyed in the mail thanks to UPS).
