A few years ago, I got a laptop for Susan. It was pretty low-powered, even for its time — a 133MHz Pentium system. But even though it wasn’t terribly powerful, we got some use out of it, mainly for the kids go play games on, or for us to do some late-night web surfing from the comfort of our bedroom. That’s what we were going to do this weekend. I was going to do some lightweight web surfing on the laptop while Susan did some work on our desktop system. But the display died.
