When we gave one to our lead programmer at my last employer, they didn't
like the 3.51 NT that shipped, and had to buy a seperate ENet card, and
he still had problems. The internal "shelf" was kinda strange too. :-)
He ended up giving up and giving the machine to QA, but he didn't spend
too long with it, deadlines and all. <shrug> Take that as you will.
