I haven't lusted after a desktop computer in YEARS (since the "Cheesegrater" Mac Pros went away) but the System76 Thelio is tempting as hell. Do I *need* a $2300 desktop? Uh, no. But do I *want* one? Yesssssss.
It doesn't help that Apple is trying its damndest to make my current machine (which works JUST FINE THANKS) obsolete via installer checks in new versions of Mac OS. I'd sure as hell rather fork over cash to System76 than Apple again, given the choice.
