My neighbor just called me and asked me if he should buy a desktop or laptop computer. Well, Hell. â€œWhat you want to do with it?â€ was my first question. You see, heâ€™s slightly computer illiterate. Naw, canâ€™t really say that; heâ€™s just plain out computer stupid. (But he tries!)
He wants to â€œcheck stuff outâ€ on the Internet.
Dude! A Nexus 10 (or even a Nexus 7) would be just the thing to â€œcheck outâ€ things on the Internet at about half the price of a decent laptop. More portable also. Maybe easier for him to use.
But then he says he wants a printer also to print â€œstuffâ€ and pictures of his recently departed friend/dog, Sasha. Dude! Load those pics on a flash drive and take them to Wal-Mart for prints. That would be better than any print you can make on a printer you can afford. Probably cheaper in the long run.
So we talked for awhile about desktop vs laptop vs pad. Heâ€™ll probably go with a laptop (which is good) and a network/wireless printer. Of course, heâ€™ll print his pictures and they wonâ€™t look â€œrightâ€ and wind up getting prints made anyway.
But, weâ€™ll see.
Anywho, got the 3 new cabinets mounted (though I need to redo one of the screws) so tomorrow I should go to Home Depot and get 10 boxes of flooring to start that. Getting to where I just want the job done so I can start on something else. Itâ€™s a vicious circle, it is!
