Heh... just wait for the new Apple Powerbooks with 64 bit PowerPC 
processors to hit the market soon for about 1/4 the price of these (or 
even less... I'm being kind).

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the 
nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those 
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and 
refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by 
convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the 
better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception."
