Iyonix dips below grand in Jan saleBy Chris Williams. Published: 1st Jan 2005, 02:33:27 | Permalink | Printable
Modest specification for modest priceDuring January 2005, punters can for the first time purchase pre-assembled Iyonixes with a sub-£1000 price tag. Castle are offering the usual 600MHz XScale Iyonix with 128M RAM, 40G hard disc and CD-RW drive for 835 quid, or an Iyonix with 512M RAM, 120G hard disc and CD-RW drive for 932 quid.
Prices include VAT but exclude delivery, and the machines are shipped in the standard blank Panther case. For more details, see the Iyonix website below. For most modest desktop use, 128M RAM and 40G of disc space is quite suitable and matches most 'spec`ed' up RiscPCs. A 120G hard disc on RISC OS will last a long time, or at least store quite a few MP3s and MPEG movies, while the 512M RAM is still somewhat of an overkill.
Last year, users were left uninspired by Castle's various Iyonix special offers, except the Iyonix motherboard deal, it appears. Hopefully Castle are intending to start the year as they mean to go on.
