     14Using a TPC gives you a chance to answer some of these questions in ways that seem reasonable.

    1416=== Personalization ===
    1517You might also be frustrated by using an ever-shifting user interface and user experience:
     
    1921 * Is `$FAVORITE_TOOL` already installed and functional here?  Is it the version that i expect it to be?  Can i rely on it?
    2022 * If i change the settings to my liking, will i be able to recover them the next time i use this machine?

     24Using a TPC, you can be more efficient in your work, and spend less time guessing about what's happening.  Time spent personalizing your TPC to meet your working habits and requirements will be repaid because you know that you'll be able to make use of those personalizations whenever you use the machine in the future.

    9397==== Durability ====
    9498The more durable the machine is, the heavier it is.  This is a poor tradeoff for folks who want to take their TPC with them everywhere.  As new technologies arise, though, some systems can be lighter ''and'' more durable.  For example, solid-state storage is both lighter and more durable than a traditional hard disk.
