Origin makes Gaming PC's. While I am an avid gamer. I am more of a console gamer. I wanted a laptop to accompany me on the Run to Remember  I wanted it to be able to handle all the HD video, photo's, Garmin Data, without so much as a hiccup. I did not want to use my limited cognitive skills with frustrating electronic experiences. I use my laptop as my memory. I use my Windows Phone 7 as my memory when  I am the go. So I can't afford a half baked PC.

I truly believe in technology. However sometimes the usage of the technology itself is harder than the task we got the electronic to help us with.

However with a GPS, a digital Schedule and calendar on my computer and my phone. I am now able to augment my reduced memory to be able to do things like Marathons, Ironmans, work, be a contributing member of society. However that technology needs be able to be used by someone with  reduced mental capacities. That is a massive challenge. Despite the limits and the followers of products. I find Microsoft works really well for me. It's not perfect, however, I am able to upload a video I just made, that I edited and posted online. I am also able to run across the country with enough mental challenges that going to the store to get milk is a challenge. Just imagine what you can do!
