While the team was working on Emmanuel's laptop, Bobbie was telling me that
an inexpensive laptop she'd recently gotten at Goodwill required a form of
memory that was more costly than other more readily available types; and
since the "inexpensive" laptop contained too little memory to be usable, it
would remain largely idle until a cheap fix could be obtained...

I mention this because 'twould seem that the theme of last night's SF-LUG
meeting was "Inexpensive laptops may not actually be inexpensive"...
