One thing that seems to me most unlikely to survive is the free copy of

pretty cheap and powerful machine to match the deal one could get through
NeXT. Of course there will continue to be discounts for teaching labs
from Wolfram, but for faculty or other purchases my comment still holds.
One more thing: Canon makes copiers, Cannon makes towels. Let's get it
