Hi folks, Right at the moment I'm swearing a Mma v2.0 on my (actually, Penn State's) NeXTstation; however, despite its flaws and assuming things get fixed in v2.1 I was thinking about springing for Mma for my (really mine) Mac Powerbook 170 (8MB RAM, 80 MB disk). How's the performance on the Mac relative to the NeXT? Good ol' PSU sells Mma for $319 so the 319 dollar question is whether I should hang onto my pennies and invest in a home NeXTstation and meanwhile come into the office in the evenings to work? Thanks for the input, Mark. --- Mark Kotanchek Guidance & Control Dept - 363 ASB Applied Research Lab/Penn State P.O.
