Geez! More than a month!! That's something! The macs they have here on the Uni
were crashing after at most 5 days.

I was wondering whether it makes sense at all... Many people I know are
trashing macs for the sake of PCs. With the incoming Intel/AMD/HP CISC/RISC
CPU macs are very likely to go down faster than anyone can reveal today. Just
imagine, the P9 will have the ability to run in x86 compat mode while opening
the way for the home PCs to go to the RISC world!! And since AMD is
participating in the project, I'm sure nothing's gonna be spoiled, like Intel
used to do ;-))

Exactly. And besides Macs are getting more and more expensive in comparation
to the same possiblilities offered by the PC platform.
