Return of the (laptop) Hunter

As the end of the new month of the new year draws near, I am resuming my quest for a good, reliable laptop computer that has all of the features I need and want. The one factor that has been eluding the equation is money, but like it always does, will materialize at the proper time.

By coincidence or perhaps by design, I've been bumping into people carrying laptops all last week and have had the opportunity to examine the machines firsthand.

I need a lappie with a strong OS, built-in wi-fi, all-purpose CD/DVD, at least 3 USB ports, micro-card port, various audio-video in+out jacks, able to accept a network card AND a telephone line for dial-up. A machine with lots of disk space... I know what programs I require. The need is both personal and professional. Anybody who'd care to help me in this quest is invited to contribute via the "donate" button at the top right hand column of this humble weblog.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
