The lifetime of eMates is truly impressive. I have had mine as my main
machine, used everyday really, since 1997, I have been all over the world
with it, and the only thing that has ever gone wrong is that the backlight
isnow dead. The hinges are fine, it works as well as it ever did and if it
managed to survive Iran, Egypt, Malaysia, Turkey etc. I am sure it would
makeit in Omaha!
