I suppose you might be right. Everyone I know that owns a tower (excluding mac tower people funnily enough) knows a helluva lot more about their computers then their laptop counterparts. But then again as you said most people own laptops, and most people, don't know that much about computers!

No more blue screen of death
As you can probably tell I've had enough of windows!
So mine isn't the only one that sounds like a helicopter!
