Here are some general answers. Later in the chapter, I'll go into more detail about the specific kinds of things a computer can do for you. Here, we'll just cover the broad categories of tasks it can help you perform. Computers can automate boring, repetitious tasks. Think of something that's really boring, and that you do over and over, wishing each time you do it that you'd never have to do it again. (And, no, I don't mean talking to your mother-in-law. ) Something like writing dozens of thank-you notes or invitations and hand-addressing the envelopes.

Why do you want to buy a PC, anyway? Are you crazy or something? Without doubt, you have seen the exasperated looks on the faces of your friends who own a computer and try to do a simple task such as getting the thing to multiply 52 times 750, or something a little fancier such as saving a file. And as for using it to send email . . don't even ask them about their tribulations. So why put yourself through all that trouble? Why not just keep your life simple with a typewriter, a handheld calculator, some stamps and envelopes, and a telephone?
