I have a Powerbook 170 8/80 at home (along with a Sigma  
PowerPortrait) and a NeXTstation 32/(400+1.2) at the office and got  
to thinking I should standardize on one symbolic manipulation package  
rather than running Mathematica on the NeXTstation and Maple on the  
Powerbook. My impression (based on hearsay) is that Mathematica is  
too much of a resource hog to run effectively on the Powerbook which  
would seem to indicate that Maple is the winner and I should buy a  
copy for the NeXT.

HOWEVER, I got to thinking some more (a dangerous thing, I know) and  
started toying with the concept of buying a couple of 14.4 modems for  
the machines and running the kernel on the NeXT and the front end on  
the Powerbook/PowerPortrait. I was wondering if anybody had  
implemented a similar configuration and, if so, what their impression  
was of the setup?

Thanks much,
