For those of you who come from the
stateside geek background, here is
a comparison (assuming that people
vote with their wallets) of a very
different set of priorities:

     Soldering Iron        CHF    15
     Mac Mini              CHF   750
     LauraStar Magic i-S5  CHF 1'400
     Siemens Dressman      CHF 1'700

Now, the Dressman is so unusual it
might be worth the big ask, but is
a LauraStar Magic system that much
better than the models that can be
had for around half a Mac Mini?
