    Stuff Acer: Don't colour it green

    Whether you care or not about global warming, pollution, etc., and we should, my employer has stopped buying Acer because of rubber feet.

    As we are in an area where power can get dicey when water levels fall or high temperatures cause air-cons to kick in, we always buy laptops rather than desktop computers because the batteries allow us to get away with a manual switch-over generator, which is much cheaper than auto-switching.

    Oh, they are available BUT you have to buy them attached to half the base cover. Really dumb.
