AFAIK, B&W Macs don't suffer from any serious
reliability problems, esp. if they've been around for
this long. I mean, the fact that the beige machines
are older would seem to indicate that you would be
replacing them sooner than a B&W.
If there are B&W shortcomings, please tell me what
they are. I ask this because I'm looking to a acquire
one in the near future.

That comment segues into the question I've meant to
ask: why is there a need to exceed the 32-character
limit for filenames?
