I suspect he means that we are starting to head into non-TeX related  

Thank you all for your responses. Though I was hoping for a "magic  
bullet" response that would make my decision crystal clear, I got  
what I expected, which is a very interesting discussion, but no clear  
thumbs up or thumbs down answer.

At this point, I am still deciding what to do, but I am leaning  
toward waiting until the machines start to ship so that I can get  
some real numbers.

Thank you again.
