LAURA YASUDA/
TEACHER
I have a Macintosh Powerbook 190c. It' about three years old and is probably considered obsolete. Right now I'm checking my email. My computer doesn't have a screen saver because, like its owner, when it's been inactive for more than ten minutes, it goes to sleep. I don't really surf the Web because it's too slow and I'm too impatient.

This is a Sony. It's two and a half years old. I'm looking at my friend's website right now. My screen saver is a samurai. I mainly like the gossip and scandal websites.

Ah, the luxuries of the laptop. Instant online connection - anytime, anywhere. Can we have a peek? What kind of computer is that and what design do you have in the background? Are you working or playing? And where's your favorite place to roam on the Web?

I've got a Mac Powerbook 170. It's old, but she works. At the moment, I'm checking my stocks. My favorite background design is After Dark and my favorite website is www.stockinfo.com

I use a Compaq. It's two months old. I'm playing a game right now. My background design is the maker's logo, but I'll change it soon. My favorite websites are the ones with jokes, as I enjoy a good laugh.
