I'm in for KS 2 if its got new features... otherwise, having two is just greedy and depriving someone of the joy of a Next of their own.
Not really. They will only manufacture enough to fulfill backer pledges. If you pledge one less, they will manufacture one less. If we pledge 1000 less in total, they will manufacture 1000 less.

The more you own, the more Nexts exist for people to use in the future.
In that case, I'm in. :lol: Let's call it preservation

Something that I think would be fairly uselful was touch bar as the one used by most recent Macs (please, do not throw rocks at me just yet). Many old machines (such as Vic 20, C64, MSX series, PC-XT etc) have special key such as control, function keys, page up/down, insert, delete etc) that are notably absent from Speccy. Since the next revision of Next should add more and more cores as we see in the forums, youtube etc I think it would be a very handy addition. Besides, a touch bar would open new ways to interact with the Next, maybe some awesome new games could make good usage of it.

Just my 2 cents.

Count me in as well for the full accellerated next. Completed the first poll and missed this second one!
Looking forward to the Next Kickstarter commencing.

Also would be great if the boxed games would be made available as well as would want to order them.

thanks

Another lifelong Sinclair fan here. Would love an accelerated wifi Next. How does Kickstarter work btw? Is there a finite number of machines on offer or a finite period to reserve one?
