On Black Friday I bought THIS COMPUTER from Best Buy for $799.  There is a learning curve on Win8 for someone who doesn't work a smart phone, but we are going there too.  My wife ordered a pair of 4G Samsung Galaxy S4 phones and setup up with Straight Talk no contract plan of $45 per phone with unlimited voice, text, & data, data slowing down after 2.5GB in the billing cycle.  If Straight Talk proves to be a big disappointment, no contract means we can switch to something else.

I am in the middle of changing my email address to gmail to fit into all this stuff better.  No more Outlook, all managed on-line now.  It's time for a change in my email address anyway.

Especially if blowing out a desktop computer.  The cloud of dust is remarkable.

Welcome aboard Done Working.  I won't be able to change my name to "Done Working Too" for another 10+ years.

Regarding Class A, B, C, they are categorized by the chassis the RV manufacture starts with, not the end result.

Class A starts with a stripped chassis like this.


Class B starts with a cargo van like this.


Class C starts with a cut-away chassis like this.


Keep in-mind that the chassis manufacture offers RV specific option groups which delete the seats, side mirrors, adding electric windows, door locks, a/c, chrome grille work etc, some of many variances compared to a chassis marketed for commercial use.

Great that you have a compressor.  They are much more effective at full blast.  The only precaution I would take is to stick a jeweler's screwdriver in the cooling fan blades to hold it still so you don't spin it past it's designed rpms.  Theoretically you could damage it.  Once blasted there, remove the screwdriver and hit all other areas.  I would open all compartments, remove the battery, hard drive and RAM cards for other places to blast and allow dust to escape from.  Good Luck.

I am waiting for Black Friday deals to replace my HP.  It's overheating and not worth it to fix at it's age.
Most overheating of computers is that the dust bunnies have moved in big time.  Buy a can of compressed air and shoot it in through all vent slots and fan opening.  If you have access to an air compressor, that will work better.

If you see the results, the website thinks you already voted.

I don't know why you can't vote if you didn't vote already.  It appears to be open for voting.

If it meets your needs today and serves you well for years to come, it's worth the cost.  Congratulations Tom!

Cost is a primary factor for me.  I could get by with a $300-$400 laptop today but realize it will limit me tomorrow.  Planning ahead, it's looking more like $900-$1000.

As I was told out in Montana, the way to tell the difference between black bear scat and grizzle bear scat is that the black bears contains berrys, while the grizzles contains little bells. LOL
Very Funny!

My experience in bear country is that bear bells are 99% good for the peace of mind, and 1% effective.  Bear spray is more effective than a gun, both for bears and inner city gangs.  Just hope you are upwind from your target.

Tom,

I was just kidding, really, really kidding.

Now don't get me started on the ratings again.......TomHanlon, is that you hitting me south all the time?   Smile Smile Smile

BTW:  I loved that video....quite funny regardless how one feels about Obamacare, as long as it is watched as "entertainment".  Something that is funny will always have just enough truth mixed in.
