But since I use the Extigy now, it doesn't matter. My setup now includes the following: -Compaq Armada M700, PIII-700 MHz (it ain't much, but more than adequate for this particular task), 256MB Ram, recently purchased 40GB hard drive -Creative Labs Extigy -Powered USB 2.0 mini-hub -Targus USB lamp....

I think the facts are that different event promoters want different types of music and dance representing their events. They hire the people they feel can best represent their vision.
