       I inherited this from family.  It started out with 2 512Mb RAM inside and wouldn't connect through WiFi.  I got the WiFi working quickly, but the RAM wasn't sufficient, so I looked up the RAM configuration in the manual.  It stated that only 2 1 Gb RAM would be supported...

    So Convenient

    This group is cool and sorta absurd at the same time sorta like the concept of having a portable computer that you can take anywhere yet not necessarily being able to use it everywhere, ie. wi-fi... at least not here in the USoA

    Two

    I have an 'old' one and a 'new' one but prefer to use the old one because right now the screen on the new one is messed up. I really should get a desktop computer because my family uses the laptops so much that there is always something wrong with them.
