Agree, apples to oranges, but my intent (however crudely stated) wasn't to compare my machine to his, but rather to say as much as I sometimes think it'd be really nice to string on something like a Ghost, in the end, the novelty of the new machine would be fleeting. It has everything to do with the fact that I'm "content" with my current setup...just as he's satisfied with his. That's all.
