Oh, I know that the 7500FE is behind the times even in the Psiony market, but processor power matters far less on these platforms. nunfetishist makes a good point above, which is why I think that the laptop should try to sidestep the traditional laptop market, where it does not have a chance except with the enthusiasts. RISC OS boxes in general cannot compete in any way with Macs and PCs these days (for 99.999% of users), so we're better off going for niche markets, and a little laptop like the RS could make a great mobile terminal for sales forces, as it is made of metal it could be easily ruggedized for field use. Turnkey solutions could be built for all manner of businesses.
