I disagree with your disagreement. Buy the second fastest, best computer.
This is where the really big price drop occurs, and it stays pretty current
a long time. Furthermore, buy a 2 processor motherboard but just one
processor. I am very happy I did this, because as soon as the DX drivers
w2k come along, I'll be able to double my processor speed for a couple of
hundred bucks (practically) and keep my computer current even longer.
I discovered all this during puberty too, which wasn't nearly as fun as
yours, which also explains why my answer is so much better.
