    Most of what I do is e-mail, blogging and research via the internet. So I rarely if ever need speedy laptop or desktop. If my old laptop hadn’t finally died, I’d still be using a slow box, running Windows 2K!

      One day I had to purchase five computers and I just couldn’t get over the $40k waste of tax money. That’s just one purchase for a corner of cubicles in a four story building full of those computers.
