I loved my little company 1998 spec AST laptop with Windows 95, 65MB of ram, 166MMX CPU (I overclocked that sucker to 233Mhz though), single USB port, CD Rom and 3GB HDD.
Great little machine. Wasn't so keen on the locked up tight NT4 laptops that followed it but they weren't bad either.
However, I caught on and saw what was on the horizon and made the request to be the only desktop PC user in the office. That way I was never under pressure to work from home/hotels or at the weekend.
"Oh damn, I can't sorry, don't have a laptop!"
Enabled far more time in the hotel bar.
