Though we get the IBM edition w/o abstracts (I believe this works the same
for Mac), Reference Update lets you mark interesting references that you
want abstracts for, then call their database via modem and download only
the abstracts you want.  This is a cost-effect, hard-disk-space-saving
alternative to buying and loading all those hundreds of abstracts you'll
never look at.
