Meant to be a light-hearted can of worms, for sure!  

Actually I think Bill’s offer is a good one, the iLamp is definitely a classic, iconic design.  Yes, wise to hold on to things you know (or suspect) will become more important in the future.

Thus, a lamp-Mac belongs in our collection. It may * already * be "vintage" because it became historic from Day One of its existence. Others can debate that :) but part of my job is to decide what belongs in the collection, and my decision is made...
