Default Why buying laptops is a bad deal long term (dead battery = unable to boot up)

I don't do any of the virtual stuff. Although I have desktops that are capable, I
never found a real need for it yet.

Hyper-V and Microsoft is riddled in cloud services and server
technology. To a degree offset into a W10 home environment OS, and
whether Hyper-V is a byproduct or perhaps convenience, there's clearly
a lot to lose if Oracle were not able to virtualize W10. From a
developmental standpoint I can't see everyone either rushing into a
host Linux platform(s) to run every client OS version of Microsoft, or
Android, Virtualbox supports. Certainly not everyone without
unlimited "bare-metal" resources, or an applicability Oracle would
seem indicate for optimal when the same OS version is capable of
multiple instances of running within common resources Oracle has
uniquely to arbitrate to share between them. Something along the
"snapshots" concept (mentioned in the site document), where the OS
isn't actually virtualized, as much for one being reductively
anecdotal to Oracle's listing it apart, for a snapshot, from another
instance of the same OS as one from another "snapshot", differential
engagements, however, each snapshot then configured or accessorized by
program accountability, one differentially from another, inside or
outside, OS provisions. The virtualization is programs generated for
common-sourced with the snapshot being applied, as it were, * la mode.

Interesting, although at what price and how much memory, how many
processor cores "bare metal" actually costs, is perhaps at yet some
further assessment.

I'm not worried. Such things are always talked about for a very long time before
they actually become the flavor of the day... IF, in fact, they ever do. Anyway,
this will likely happen in slow steps with older systems "grandfathered in" for as
long as we are apt to need them.

Against Paul's reservations a few years ago I bought a cheap i5 laptop (Dell Latitude) used on eBay and it's worked OK,

Gonna have to stop you right the

1. Never buy cheap computers it sucks.
2. USED ?!?!? wow.......

Not sure if laptop can work without battery but so far my two laptops work with power cord connected to power outlet/socket via power cable.
