No no no... you American guys drive on the wrong side.
Japan, England, and other countries are the correct ones.

Check out Kabuki-cho at night.
Don't miss SoapLand (adult version of DisneyLand).

I guess 12k version has extra commercial softwares, and the rest is 
identical. I belive those Japanese versions are capable of handling 
Korean and Chinese as well. Possibly some other languages. If 12k version
has office apps, then it's good to show at lugod demo.  I believe it's
Kondara or Turbo.  I don't like both for non-technical reasons, but I'm
very interested in whatever the linux distro in Japanese.

I guess PPC is quite popular in Japan?
Obviously not here in the US... If you got PC  version, I will definitly
try it out. I don't have ppc, and not very interested in getting one anytime
soon. (but new ibook is so attractive)

12000 yen pc version.
3500  yen ppc version. (just to support minority).

> PPS: Should I get an MD player/burner? :)

Yes. I have two (both AIWA). It's much better than mp3 crap.
You can record digitally with text info. (sync mode). so don't forget to
get IR cable, too.  I recommend SONY or DENON.
