dbf is an easy-to-use command line tool to show and convert the content of dBASE III, IV, and 5.0 files, as well as of FoxBase and Visual FoxPro. It reads xBASE-compatible databases and prints the content to the screen or converts it to comma-separated (*.csv) files which can be opened in Excel, StarOffice, and most other spread sheets. It can also be used to show some statistics about the content.

Only if you have a look at the Desktop PCs, if you compare their prices for Powerbooks with Notebooks of other PC producers, they are on the same level if you compare price with the performance you get out of it, although the processor rates are not that high. And that depends most on MacOS X.
