That's not what I said. See below.

That's not what "you can easily go down town today and get one locally" implies. "Today" implies that I get up in the morning (let's assume having a day off on a normal workday), have the spontaneous idea to get a G4 Mac, take my shoes and can easily return home no later than evening the same day with a G4 Mac under my arms. That's what I questioned. Throwing a classified to the newspaper would take several days to get published and answered. And while we have a number of 2nd hand stores here, it's not a save bet that any of them has a G4 Mac in stock.

Yes, of course. In my opinion the general availability of G4 Macs is better than that of Sam440s.
