IYONIX hits sub UKP900

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 18:09, 6/4/2005 | , , ,
 
IYONIXIn what must be the most tenuous marketing ploy evverrr, Castle have written in with details of a 350 cachback offer on IYONIX machines from now until the UK General Election is over.

The offer is open to anyone buying direct from Castle or any appointed dealer, and applies to any IYONIX, X100 or Panther PC. And in case your grasp of politics is about as good as mine is, they helpfully mention that the offer expires at 5.00pm on 5th May 2005.

For more info, including prices, check out the press release.

An Iyonix for £900 is really not bad at all.

That's a very good price for those who havn't just spent a grand on a laptop. I do wonder what castle have up their sleeves though. Will there be a new RISC OS computer on the way?

I would bet real money (as opposed to fake money!) that Castle do NOT release a faster machine at the show.
Cheers!

Are they maybe running scared of the (supposedly) forthcoming A9home? Trying to get people on-board before that comes out?

I am strongly tempted by this offer, which represents a 25% reduction. As to faster/cheaper new Castle or A9 hardware, I remind myself of the iron law of computing: the moment you pay good money for a computer, it is rendered obsolescent by some new development. Carried to its logical conclusion, this is an argument for not buying anything ever, of course, so I believe I will take the plunge.
