   Indeed, my desktop machine is a 17" Powerbook with a cinema 
display...but computers with Great Big Balls do all the heavy lifting 
around here.  I simply haven't seen a hardware/OS combination in an x86 
box that comes close to the raw throughput of an E3500 with four 400MHz 
processors.  But then I suspect my applications are a bit different 
than yours due to the line of work I'm in, so to each his own!
