Not only that, but for some reason, LED enhancements are seen to
indicate ultra-powerful systems. My Octane with a blue LED lightbar
gets comments like "Wow that must be a *fast* computer!" "Dang, listen
to the fans! It must be really fast!" "Are those cooling vents? You
must have dual Athlons in there, right?"
When I reply, "yes it's fast" they invariably ask how many Ghz. I tell
them 300Mhz and their look of excitement immediately turns to disgust.
"That's too slow." they say. "How do you get any work done?" they ask.
I don't are what you compare it to, a 300Mhz Octane is not slow. It
might not be as fast as the latest multi-Ghz x86 system, but it is *NOT*
