i would never buy any of todays x86 hardware, a couple years ago it
wasn't bad but now its TOTAL CRAP.

the desktops aren't even that bad really.  considering the cheap intel
stuff is garbage.  you have to pay close to the same as you would for
a decent mac for an x86 that will actually be reliable.  another
consideration that may be relevant, those fancy 600Mhz/1Ghz Athlons
everyone blubbers about, are massive power hungry heat producing sons
of bitches.  you pretty well HAVE to have no less then a 350 watt
power supply for them to be reliable, else you get some obscure
instability (i have seen this firsthand).

/var/lib/dpkg/lock?

that is usually caused by another dpkg process running somewhere.
