Yes, many are, and I certainly was. Max is now THE plan for me. (I 
don't mean to sound like a proselytizing Scientologist or something). 
Finally, everything is in one place, and I'm not hauling around tons of 
hardware, and certainly not drooling over hardware at all. When a new 
box comes out I could care less.

It took me a fairly short period of time to get up and running, and the 
musical rewards have been great.

It is certainly NOT for everyone, but if you are interested in laptop, 
I believe Max/MSP is the way to go....my humble opinion.

Regarding all that other gear: eBay has been very good to me. Much more 
room in my storage unit and bedroom than there was.

Nothing to sell.

Eventually I will post stuff (for free) but not yet,

BUT I will share with anybody who wants to get together.
