This is a queston I want to ask becasue after yesterday when I had a major issue with mine I realized how important it is to me. Well, actually this is something I realized some years back when one of my systems crashed. I am no ashamed to admit that I am dependent on my laptop. I have to go out here to earn money and look for work. Without it, I am pretty much lost. That's how important it has become to me. So, is you computer as important to you. It just seems as if these days we have allowed technology to take over things we use to do in the physica world such as look for work. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing because the Internet does make it more convenient but the key is being able to access it first.
