A: Is your computer fast enough?
B: Oh my gosh, don't even ask me that question! My computer is unbelievably slow. It's the bane of my existence!
A: You're exaggerating! It can't be that bad. Didn't human resources just issue you a new computer last month? If it's new, the processor should be pretty decent. It shouldn't be that slow.
B: It's slower than my dead grandmother! The computer they gave me was new to me, but it was already 5 years old. They just dusted off some relic from the back storage room and presented it to me as new!
A: Is that right? Well, that's what you get for complaining that our company's technology is out of date. They probably did it on purpose just to spite you. If it is five years old, it's probably slower than the one you had before.... How much RAM does it have?
B: I'm not sure, but I know my computer definitely does not have enough memory. The hard drive is cluttered with so much useless software. It might be a little faster after I delete all the programs I don't use often, but what I really wish for is something state of the art.... High speed, built-in wireless internet, enough gigabytes to satisfy....
A: Keep dreaming.
A: Did you see the newest flat-screen plasmas that have come out? It's amazing what they come up with these days....
B: Amazing,yeah. But those suckers are pretty expensive. I heard they cost next to 3 Gs a piece.
A: Yeah, I heard that too. Some of the new technology that comes out is pretty affordable, though.
B: Like what?
A: The new IBM MP4 players are pretty reasonably priced for what you get. You can get a nice little MP4 with about 3 gigs of space for a little over a hundred bucks. I think that's a pretty decent price, don't you?
B: I guess so, but the tiny screens don't have enough pixels to make any graphics worthwhile. You can listen to music fine, but if you want to play some multi-media files, you can't see much. With the current technology limitations, I think portable MP4 players are a rip-off.
A: You want to wait until the next generation comes out before buying in, huh?
B: You got it.
