It matches their "price vs quality" ratio they have on their H2 and H3[:p]

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

They are a bit expensive but I am not sure why you are describing them as crap. They are using mid-high end Pentium M's (yes there are faster M's out there), the cases are made from Magnesium which is light, durable, and not the cheapest material to build products from.

The really sad part is that some sucker is online as we speak, making a purchase for one just because it's made by Hummer.

It's not too late for the little guy, we can slap a Mercedes jumper on him and burn the Hummer shirt.

yeah but why not titanium and a g4 processor? i ADORED my titanium computer.

it was the last of the TiBooks, 1ghz, 512ram, 60gb drive, dvd burner, 64mb video card, wireless b card. ohhh it was nice.

sold it when it was 2 years old for a grand and a half(to buy my mercedes) hows that for holding its value?

That is good for holding its value. The case was not actually made from Titanium (at least I don't believe it was) it was just the name.

Have you seen the stats on the new intel powered appels? They are claiming 4x the performance of the G5.
