On Price Comparisons:

Just to bring people up on the 3.1 points.

I was lucky enough to be able to buy an A5k new, it still goes but my main RO machine remains the A5k Mk2 which replaced it in ~97. Only in the last year have I been able to afford the A7k or RiscPC sitting ontop of the PC I'm writing this on. The A7k (~35 from Wakefield 2002) is dilligently running !Webjames all day everyday & the RiscPC (70 from Wakefield 2003) awaits my rapidly decreasing ammount of free time to prepare it for my preferred configuration and disc structure amongst other things.

For some of us buying the latest RISC OS machine is a pipe dream, I'd like to support the platform more but I have a family to feed & my wages only go so far. To refer to everyone stuck on 3.1 as leaches is unfair in many ways and shows more than a touch of arrogance.

Just my 2p.
