I worked for a company who always provided us with powerbooks, and I'll never forget the first one I actually went out and bought on my own. $3700 and I nearly choked! Treated that thing like an infant!

Used off a forum isn't a fair comparison, especially for theoretical purposes...

Oh, and then everything is used!!!
