    New Macs include Wikipedia inbuilt. Cause if you search in Spotlight it will come up with the Wikipedia article for it.

    An Internet connection is needed for the Wikipedia function to work.

    It's a shame they did away with them, would have fit on a couple of floppies. :)

    No need to take down all revs, user forums etc.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Database_download

    Quite doable, even on a 32GB USB stick.
