Heh, many do not know that phillips size and I tell some techs that
you only need 1 and 2 and most computers especially use
number 2. And carry 8, 10, 15 and 20 Torx screwdrivers.
I love to have at least 1 or 2 screws to take cover off. Once in a
while I have to face a midtower with 8 screws on back and few old
computers w/ endless screws and poor design as well! UGH.

Ok I forgot to tell one thing about ease of use in computers: the
Rainbow series. The nice looking computer is NeXT.
