The Answer Is Obvious

Kevin Barbieux (aka “The Homeless Guy”) recently had his laptop stolen (sadly).  He is raising money for a new one.  As a computer professional, I can say that unless Kevin’s doing video production or algorythms on the human genome, I’d suggest one of these.  Only MACSnobs think they’re too good for Linux.  MS folks don’t know any  better.

Anyway, the question came up about security for the new laptop, once he gets it.  How does he keep the next one from being stolen?  The answer is obvious.

The man needs a pit bull.

Sorry, Kevin.  It was just too irresistable.

    That little laptop is neat! Even that cheap, I still can’t afford one, but I come a lot closer to affording one of those! It’s within dreaming range, woot! 😉

    We just got one of those, I’ll have you know! They are the bee’s knees for almost anything that the average person is going to do with a computer. They are light, reasonably fast, the battery has a long life, Linux is surprisingly easy to use (although it does manage to merge the worst features of Apple with the worst features of Windows), and it’s so wee and cute that you want to give it a hug. It’s also much better than my MacBook at picking up WiFi signal. Lots of bang for the buck.

    I poked fun at my husband for buying it, but it turns out that he was right. It’s really quite a nice machine.
