How does Mma work on a Mac Powerbook 170?

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.
