But for world wide web surfing, statement processing, and most other typical computer work they are okay, provided you do not mind your little friend screen size. Many thanks sharing your ideas.

  4. Very good written information. It will be valuable to anybody who employess it, as well as yours truly :). Keep up the good work – for sure i will check out more posts.
