[Panel 1]
[Bell]
Hmph.

[Nils]
Bell, are you OK?

[Bell]
I've got something
embarrassing
to say, all right?

Steve's hand-cranked
accounting system for the
pub was all very well, but...

[size 7]
I could really use a laptop.

[Panel 2]
[Nils]
[style thinks]
A: "Hah, told you you'd come
round to my way of thinking."
B: "Are you sure you can learn
to use it?"
C: "What sort would you prefer?"

[style rrect]
What d'you fancy? Shiny and
thin, or cheap and powerful?

[Bell]
[size 10]
The latter.

[Nils]
Need a long battery life?

[Panel 3]
[Bell]
Not really.

[Nils]
That's easy then, I'll set you
up with one of the machines
I've rescued from Freecycle.

You just have to promise never
to run Windows on it again.

[Bell]
As long as it does what I want
I don't care what it runs.

[Panel 4]
[Elizabeth]
Just make sure you call it "Lord
Protector" or "Old Ironsides".

[Bell+Nils]
Why?

[Elizabeth]
Well, it's his birthday.
