Regarding the question of PB160 vs. 180, I see three differences: (1) 33 MHz vs. 25 MHz CPU; (2) presence vs. absence of math co-processor; and (3) the display. A "power user" doing lots of math-intensive work could probably justify the extra $1000 for the PB180. I do a lot of computing, but not of that sort, so I went with the 160. I'm very happy so far. No, the "ghosting" does not bother me, though the cursor does seem to disappear at times. I believe that there are some PB tools to help this problem, however. I am also using the video out to control an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. It works fine -- and it's *very* quiet! George Allen <email@example.com>
