Hello everyone. I am new here. Joined after a google search. Have questions about laptops. I am 59 and only owned a desktop. I started college when FORTRAN and COBOL came out. I went back to college when Wordstar morphed into Wordperfect and we used Desktop Publishing and Lotus 123. There was no Kinko's. So when we start talking about smartcards, PC cards, memory vs. storage I am a bit lost. So here I am.
