I think I may have to go this way, I think it may be just too slow

I like the way you call it a laptop! I've used it on my lap on a couple
of occaissions but not for long, it not only gets very warm but the
weight gets too much... usually much sooner than the heat does. It must
weigh over 10kg, has a full size keyboard (minus cursor and Page Up/Page
down groups); the display is either orange or green gas plasma or
something. It could be a fun task getting it going!
