It's a proven *fact* that second-hand 1.25GHz G4s perform better than
new ones.....I'd provide a link but you'll have to use Google ;)

Occupational hazard of buying computer kit: a few months later they

you can get caught in permanent wait state (I have): always waiting
for something better/cheaper to come out and never actually buying
anything :)
