...and if you read closely, they say that the weight is dependant upon 
their suppliers. That's one of the neatest escape clauses from which to 
claim whatever they want. Most important, it won't run OSX!

While Apple continues to forge ahead, there are bound to be wannabees 
trading on its reputation. The smart money still buys the real thing. 

Bottom line is still the net cost, which can be best illustrated by my 
selling, recently, a Ti400 (1st Rev) for more than half its original 
price. Talk to me about a 2-3 year old PeeCee' resale value. (Very 
pleased with my new 17" PB)

I've said it before but it bears repeating:

"The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low 
price is forgotten"
