But then, of course, that $140 price includes a 1-year warranty,
which is good for a 6-year-old machine. A 2000 from eBay deosn't have
that kind of protection. On the other hand, I've got a 10-year-old
OMP developer's beta/prototype, and it's still goin' strong.

If there's one thing I can't stand, it's intolerance. Prejudiced people are all alike. Avoid cliches like the plague.
