not sure, if you confuse something:
gtk is a c based toolkit used by gnome and gimp, tk ist a gui toolkit on

i think you are far better of with a pc with about 1.5 ghz and a bigger

space -- and a fast cpu is a real blessing when compiling often. besides,  
i don't think the price will differ much ...
