property that if you keep the option key pressed during boot, you get
your choice of OS 9 or OS X. It's already set up for you like that.
(Amusingly enough, my salesperson didn't know about this trick, but
his colleague did.)
For a grand, you get a combo drive (burns CD's, reads DVD's), 256 MB RAM
(not enough, of course), a 1 GHz G3 (I _think_ it's a G3), 60 GB disk,
_and_ if you buy in the next forty-eight hours from participating dealers,
a _free_ Canon printer. That's a deal!
