I have a 2 bedroom apt, that is way too full with computer "junk". That
is one of the reasons I want to..... what's a good word, maybe refine?,
my collocation.

This has always been a mystery to me, since I bought mine. Everyone
always talks about how heavy, and "built like a tank" these computers
are. I don't think mine is that heavy, maybe because I don't have dual
full height drives? I was expecting the case to be made from think
steel, but mine is some sort of plastic (composite?). That said, it is
currently one of my favorite computers :-)
