So what is it you're gonna be doing? You're not Lloyds bank are you?

I get this every day "It needs to be fast" why? its a sales pitch blind alley 
true if you want to play Tomb raider on it then speed is an issue.

Most Businesses can get away with
PII 500

All they need is the ability to write and read some letters do quotations, 
display some images and maybe do a powerpoint presentation.

Now thats bad for me because then I couldn't sell over priced over spec'd 
machines to companies that could mange with what they've got.

I'm talking about general businesses, once you start getting into the area of 
specialisation its a different ball game.
