and if only those prices were pounds instead of dollars I might even be tempted to whip out the trusty credit card.

My immediate reaction was "at last somebody has had a rush of design sense" followed by "what about heat/upgradeability"

But they seem to have addressed all that. We'll see, but I wouldn't mind one on my crowded desktop, wouldn't mind at all......

Until PCI cards become alot smaller etc, I feel this would be nothing but hassel with regards to upgrades

However, someones got to get the ball rolling....

For most computer users anyway. Upgrade is not really an option often used. The purchase is treated much in the same way as a car, only the second-hand/trade-in market has not stabilised yet.

But maybe Sir Clive should have a look at his Patents.

It reminds me of my VIC20, with everything under the keyboard....except the tape drive

Looks just like my trusty old Atari ST - if only I could have got a screen like that for it :)

Youngsters may need to click here or click here to know what an Atari looked like :)

My opinion - little use for home users, ideal for many corporate uses.

If this was Dell or one of the big UK players I think they could shift a lot of product, a product like that, LAN ready would suit call centres very well.

REminds me of my old Spectrum +2A minus the tape player. A bit Ugly but could be useful in its place.

I'm sure for the home user this might not appeal very much, but for more specialised uses, when upgradability is no issue - for exmple when they just want a small computer, maybe easily moved, this is an excellent idea.

I can just about remember the days of learning BASIC on a BBC micro, and come to think of it, why did no one think of this a long time ago.
