You've probably heard the old saying, "You need to have the right tools to get the job done" and for the most part, this saying is true.
I found it to be especially true if you're doing any amount of blogging or developing for the web.
Even as an integrator, or someone that knows just enough programming to be dangerous, I have found that my previous train of thought, you don't need more than a Chromebook to blog isn't exactly true.
Here's the story:
For years, I had a Toshiba A7200 laptop that was my primary laptop. It lasted me for over four years of everyday (and all day) use.
It was a powerhouse with a 4 hyperthreaded core processor, 24GB RAM and dual hard drives. I loved that machine.
In June of 2016, that laptop failed to boot up for the last time. It was right after I wrote the post "Fathers Day in Frankfort, MI 2016" that the A7200 met it's demise.
