BUT ONLY IF THEY'RE CLUEFUL! Or have someone who is, giving them some

The odds of anyone of highschool age, at this point in time, appreciating
such a system are quite slim. The 15-18 yr olds of today were born
around 1985-1988 (gah!), so most of them--even the computer savvy ones--
probably didn't even become cognizant of different computer types until
at least the early 1990s.
