I guess I should not reveal that my personal computer has a 400MHz K6
(K7?) processor? That's about as powerful as a Linksys router,
although my computer has more hard drive capacity and RAM.

I would love to replace my desktop with a plug computer or even an
ALIX-type machine (they're so cute!)  but I probably won't. 

The nice thing about general purpose computers is their versatility.
Too bad they are going the way of the dodo.
