HO HO, Hello Mr. Cap''t Rich. HO HO

BTW, has anybody ever considered a standard desktop computer, with a flat screen. I have just bought a MSI desk computer, big as a shoe box, with a laptop motherboard. All the rest is standard desktop equipment vgr DVD-w, Flash, Memories, keyboard, flat screen, etc. I carry a ready bootable spare HD .

I am still in a process to get a 12v supply in exchange for the standard AC 110v.

I got fed up of spending in laps, which replacement cost of spares are 3 times the desktop ones.

However I visited the Global Challenge boats, which are all equipped with two Sony Vaios. Up to now, after almost 10,000 miles in turbulent drink, I still continue to receive e mails from the boat. Besides that, those guys dont have budget restrictions at all.

Have a nice research for the Holydays, and mM Xmas for U all

Fernando
