Announcement from Andrew Rawnsley, 22nd October, 2015.
Following on from the announcements about the ARMX6’s enhanced, class leading graphical capabilities this summer, we had several requests for “complete system” bundles from customers.
As such, we’re pleased to announce several bundle options at key price points for potential ARMX6 customers. Anyone who has already paid a deposit can choose one of these bundles too, so don’t worry 🙂
The bundles are show special pricing, often as much as £50.00 off normal prices…
ARMX6 Computer: £699.00
2GB RAM, 120GB solid state disc, DVD/RW drive (CD/DVD etc.) Includes 8GB of OS storage including disaster recovery.
ARMX6 Classi.MX: £899.00
This bundle consists of an ARMX6, with extra 64GB backup storage, wireless keyboard and mouse, and a lovely 1920×1080 (1080p) 23.6″ monitor with a top-grade “IPS” panel.
ARMX6 Deluxe: £999.00
This bundle increases the monitor resolution to 1920×1200. The extra vertical space helps with portrait documents, which tend to be the majority of letters and DTP docs. Also web pages are long, not wide. And email. You get the idea. Also includes wireless keyboard/mouse, 64GB backup and your choice of 250GB SSD or 128GB backup upgrade.
ARMX6 Opti.MX: £1,149.00
As for Deluxe but with a 27″ 2560×1440 IPS monitor. The extra size ensures that text and icons remain comfortably sized, whilst giving you considerably more desktop space. 25″ 2560×1440 screens are available for a bit less money, but things tend to be uncomfortably small.
ARMX6 Ulti.MX: £1,499.00
A jaw dropping 3440×1440 34″ super-wide IPS display provides a breathtaking desktop. You will want this. Your bank manager will wince, but you’ll remind them that it’s less than your RiscPC (on its own) cost in 1994 (even ignoring inflation)! Your ARMX6 comes fully loaded with 250GB SSD, 128GB of extra storage and a wireless keyboard and mouse set. This deal combines our best RISC OS computer, coupled with one of the best monitors available right now, all wrapped up with all the trimmings.
There are 4K monitor options between the Opti.MX and Ulti.MX, but we find 4K monitors can be tricky to get right. 3840×2160 pixels really needs a 32″ or larger display to be comfortable at 1:1. On RISC OS you can “double up” to get a double-detail 1920×1080 display (fonts look stunning), but this looks rather “large” on >24″ screens. Finding a happy medium may be down to personal preference.
Monitors are available separately for highly competitive prices.
Naturally you’ll be able to check all this out at the London Show this weekend. Which will be right for you?
