okokokok if I want power then I'll use the desktop and sync my files.
What I want from a laptop is something I can use on my lap and i can
easily carry it around. I personally don't try to run everything from a
one size fits all machine. If I want horsepower I'll use the farm
sitting in the rack next to my desk, 4 machines who knows how much
memory (i can't remember) and a terabyte or three for disk space.

A laptop, for me, is all about portability.

Special knowledge can be a terrible disadvantage if it leads you too
far along a path that you cannot explain anymore.
