When I worked at Apple I was always the guy who wanted to use the older 
hardware while everyone else was jumping for the latest models because I 
was dead set on finding compatibility bugs. My favorite discovery was 
uncovering a bug in the MPW C compiler because it had only previously 
been tested on the latest shiny new hardware.
