I've considered it--but how would I get the pictures back and forth between the
two machines?  I'd need to buy a router, at the very least, so add a few hundred
more dollars.  And the machine would need at least 512 MB of memory in order to
hold the scans, so add a few hundred more.  And I'd need a second copy of
Photoshop, and a second top-quality monitor and video board, so add another
$2000 or so.  We are already into thousands of dollars just for this one chance,
and I'm not even counting the scanner!
