[rescue] Merits of giving up eating for a few months

Hello to all. I have questions that have risen from Ken's posting about the
Ultra 30 deal. I'm on a pretty tight budget but I can't ignore the deal.
So, in order to justify the possible purchase of the machine, I need some
1) What would I be able to do with it? I would like to do Java development
with Borland JBuilder Personal Edition (but the minimum req suggests Ultra
2). But other than that, what can I do with it without purchasing
commercial software? Are there good open-source 3D design and rendering
programs out there?
2) Would the same amount of money be better spent on it or a cheap PeeCee
with Linux? I have no clue as to how fast the Ultra is. It definitely has
the coolness factor over any PeeCee, but the machine is still costly. What
can it do that a PeeCee can't?
3) What about the Ultra 1 deal? I won't be able to run JBuilder on it, but
what can it do for me? Is it also a very good deal?
Thanks in advance,
John "I don't do signatures" Eo
