Commenting on the IYONIX pc's first birthday Jack Lillingston said, "This
year has been very exciting for Castle and we hope everyone in the RISC OS
world will join our celebrations. The IYONIX pc has beaten all of our
expectations; this is not only due to Castle staff who have worked extremely
hard on the IYONIX pc project, but also the brilliance of everyone involved
with the IYONIX pc conception and design, including the development of
32-bit versions of RISC OS. I would also like to thank all the third party
hardware and software companies and individuals who have converted their
software to 32 bit. This has all been a remarkably smooth transition and
lays sound foundations for the future development of RISC OS."

The IYONIX pc RISC OS computer from Castle features XScale processor
technology with ultra fast 200MHz DDR RAM, UDMA100 hard drives, Gigabit
networking, PC style graphics card, USB connectivity, a full software suite
etc. The IYONIX pc is able to display a wide range of screen resolutions, up
to 2048 x 1536 pixels in 16 million colours and benefits from virtually
silent operation due to the low power XScale processor. The top-of-the-range
IYONIX pc is available also, featuring a massive 512MB of RAM, 100GB hard
drive and 52x speed CD re-writer.

The IYONIX pc, the world's first XScale desktop computer, is available for
immediate delivery with prices starting at as little as GBP1249 including
VAT which represents outstanding value. Delivery is GBP20 per computer.
