Not sure what you mean by your first point.

My argument was that as well as Oz, the Iyonix could be put together in Malaysia at least in the same way as in Oz, preferably as a whole machine, and then exported at more favorable rates.

1 pound is worth nearly 7 Malaysian dollars (which itself is pegged at 3.80 to the US dollar) which is a fantastic thing (i think it's even better than the UK to Australian dollar rate), that exchange rate can be used to Castle's advantage, potentially reducing the cost of assembly and shipping of parts.

Acorn did have clients in South Korea during their STB days of 96-98, I recall some Korean company attending one of the Acorn shows showing off their wares. It remains to be seen whether Castle's clientele includes the Far East, but if so, I would seriously look into the possibility of doing assembly here.
