Editorial Do you depend on your computer for your living? If so, I'm sure you've thought long and hard about which hardware and software to use.

They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

I'd think they would be too slow for a desktop. I use them to build Smoothwall boxes. They work great.
