Money *is* a consideration, but I would rather have a system that
works well. The main reasons I'm looking at the M10000 is that I have
seen accounts of other people successfully using it, as well as
assuming that the software support should be pretty good by now.

I'm also thinking that one of these more powerful CPU's will require
more cooling, resulting in more fan noise. Maybe I am wrong though.

Thanks for the input. I'd be grateful for any more.
