How often have you spent 50-500$ for a new piece of hardware, only to have it fail in a spectacular fashion? Not just general wear and tear, but a failure SO LARGE that it burns a hole right through both sides of your skull?
Here is mine, and it has to so with my A500. I had an apartment a few years back where the heat would fail. I don't know about where you live, but here it can get to be -30 fehrenheit. My biggest crash happened on one of those nights.
The heat failed, freezing me, my fish, and everything else in my apartment. I left a disk in my attached disk drive (hey, it happens) and when I ezected it, some of the emultion came off on the disk head. 300$ USD down the pooper. What about you?
