chrisj: "can't justify spending GBP600+ for a new machine"

Well, exactly the same thing was said when the Iyonix was GBP1500+. That doesn't mean that Castle (or indeed the A9home vendors) should go on reducing the price right down to ten pence, just because there will always be someone who "can't justify" buying a new RISC OS machine no matter how cheap they're made.

If Castle did make a 1.2GHz RISC OS 5 machine, I imagine it would be well over 1000GBP... so we'd have yet another round of moaning about prices, despite the massive advantages that such a machine could bring.
