Cool, I paid $2K for a 32/2 gig 8X. Of course I *do* know a few people.

Don't agree. Apple is still a far bigger company than Sun or SGI and I
don't hear anyone saying their doomed. Apple as I have always said will end
up a 6-7 billion dollar a year company. They will keep their installed user
base, and continue on.

We'll see.
