The people who can pay these prices will now be able to get these
computers whether they are competent or not. Most of the people on this
list, however, will no longer be able to get these machines. That is why
the people on this list are becoming upset. A shorter way of putting it is
that the machine will be sold to the highest bidder, not to the person who
can preserve the machine best.
