Reminds me of a time a few years ago when I asked a store owner which machines
were the best. His answer, "mine!" Hard to argue. As if some was to ask me the
same right now, I'd answer in kind.

I suppose that it's a Gestalt thing, being that the whole is greater than the
sum of its parts. That does indeed indicate that the best machines come from the
best parts, but not necessarily.
