The Classic cased Iyonix PCs came with:
Keyboards Chicony KU-2971 (Dark and light grey)
Mice we think were originally balled Kensington

Thank you!
Opening it reveals more boxes - one for the keyboard (unfortunately one with Windows keys; I'd really liked to have seen these replaced with Iyonix keys), one for the mouse (a three button Belkin, no mouse wheel, with ball), and the free card reader.
I thought, that was acorn labeled keyboards and mouse for Iyonix :(

It was a Castle product, why would it have Acorn branding?

Are there any new keyboards with acorn, not windows logo?

I used to have an Iyonix, but sold it a few years ago. As far as I recall Castle just sourced some standard (Windows) keyboards and supplied these with the Iyonix. I don't think there were any new Acorn branded keyboards after the demise of the Risc PC.
