Hmm. Is this true of upgrading the CPU itself, as well? For example, if
I bought a dual 225MHz system, is it possible to upgrade the CPUs to
something higher (what's the fastest speed CPU you can put in there, by
the way? I saw a dual 270MHz system at 520$ and no bids.)

I emailed and asked if they're open for bargains, and made an offer on
two of the dual proc configs they had up on eBay (didn't have a second
dual proc config up last time I checked), so we'll see if they'll even
look at me trying to haggle them down ;).
