ALEX: What is… this… thing?
HENRY: It’s a “netbook.” A stripped-down laptop with a small footprint and enhanced battery life.
ALEX: … why?
HENRY: Well they’re cheap. And all you really do with it is access the Help Desk Queue, your email, a web browser and Solitaire. This is more than enough machine for those tasks.
ALEX: I’m not sure this is enough machine to be called a machine.
HENRY: Sure it is. Granted it’s small, and the audio is very high-pitched, but it’s battery life is great… it’ll run circles around bigger laptops.
ALEX: That settles it. It’s not a machine, it’s a Chihuahua.
