    • Last thoughts. I would hesitate to use a Chromebook with any data limits because nothing is local. With a Windows, Apple, Linux, or Android computer or laptop you can work offline for example creating documents and email lists, then only connecting to send them. But my most important addition to the discussion is to ask what software you use for your banking. For example my wife here is the accountant and she uses Quicken Home and business. Everything is done through that program. That means if we wanted to have a dedicated banking computer it would have to be a Windows 10 computer. Because desktops are too big for RVs as a second system, and laptops also can be space intensive I would buy a Windows tablet. I have had 7" Windows tablets and connected a Logitech k400 wireless keyboard which has a built in track/touchpad. https://www.target.com/p/logitech-wireless-keyboard-k400-black/-/A-14303437?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=bing_pla_df&CPNG=PLA_Electronics%2BShopping&adgroup=SC_Electronics&LID=700000001230728pbs&network=s&device=c&querystring=&gclid=[*GCLID*]&gclsrc=ds It is not my first choice for a lot of typing but it is perfect on my tablets when needed. I use only 11.6"-12" Windows tablets so the touch screens are big enough for me to use touch only. That keyboard uses a full size USB receiver plugged into the computer. Tablets save for the bigger more expensive ones only have a micro USB port. I use an adapter cable and just plug in the Logitech receiver, or a full size wireless keyboard and mouse receiver into it and then the tablet. Like this: https://www.amazon.com/HONSHEN-4-Pack-Converter-Adapter-6-5Inch/dp/B06Y557SXJ/ref=sr_1_14?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1500574340&sr=1-14&keywords=Micro+USB+to+USB+OTG+Adapter+Cable Here is a pic of a tiny 7" tablet using a camera flexible tripod as a tablet holder and the full size USB keyboard/mouse receiver plugged into a 7" full size USB female to a micro USB to plug into the tablet. https://www.amazon.com/HONSHEN-4-Pack-Converter-Adapter-6-5Inch/dp/B06Y557SXJ/ref=sr_1_14?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1500574340&sr=1-14&keywords=Micro+USB+to+USB+OTG+Adapter+Cable Here is a webpage with some excellent tablets: http://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs-c_11294/tb3_windows~10/ I am not endorsing them as they are from China, and can take up to six weeks for you to receive them. I included it to show how cheaply you can get a tablet for new, and a 7" screen, with reading glasses, on a stand with a wireless keyboard might surprise most. The best and cheapest dedicated computer solution would be a USB thumbdrive with a Linux version on it. My second choice would be a Windows tablet. New like above or used from Craigslist. I have seen the ASUS T100 10.1" hybrid tablet/mini laptop for sale at the local pawn shops for $100.00. Which has a detachable keyboard.

    • So totally unrelated to the original question, so does that mean Al has an imported Diesel Smart car from Canada or were there some 450 gas ones in the US? I'm intrigued because I really like small Diesels and just wondering if some of them actually made it into the US?     I don't even know when they started the Smart in the US? 
    • I thought that was what I said  To clarify the clarification: There is only one East Entrance to Zion and it is on UT-9 (which I believe is the only road that runs through the park) and leads to the restricted tunnel. From Fredonia; AZ-389 to UT-59 to UT-9 North/East at Hurricane will take you to the Park's main entrance which is on the South side of the Park. From Northeast of Zion, one could also take either UT-20 or UT-14 (depending on mountain driving skills) from US-89 to I-15 South and go from I-15 to the main entrance to the park. Yes, the main entrance can also be reached from the West as can the Kolob Canyons section of the park. There are no roads through the park between Kolob Canyons and the main or East entrances.
    • Linux can be hacked but it is unlikely without being infected first by a Linux specific hack. Linux is not really superior to a fully up to date Windows machine. The idea as asked for was to have a dedicated system that is never used for anything but banking. It would of course need to have Anti malware like Windows defender and Malwarebytes Professional, which are what I use, to protect the system for the short time it will be online. In other words a clean system at the moment you connect and go to your online banking website. A Linux USB can accomplish this. Isolating everything on your computer including Windows Bios etc, and all boot programs is achieved by booting from a USB flash drive directly into Linux. Here is a clearer set of instructions that are as easy to follow as anything on a computer. You don't need to understand what an iso file actually is just how to get/use it. https://www.lifewire.com/create-uefi-bootable-linux-mint-usb-2202084 It is a keeper article because as well, it gives the key combinations by manufacturer to go into the "Boot Menu." For instance, you can reboot your computer and press the function key that pulls up the boot menu. Here is the list of function keys used by a manufacturer: Acer - F2 or delete Asus - F2, F9 or delete Compaq - F10 Dell - F2 Emachines - tab or delete HP - Escape, F1 or F10 Lenovo - F1 or F2 NEC - F2 Packard Bell - F1 or F2 Samsung - F2 or F10 Sharp - F2 Sony - F1, F2 or F3 Toshiba - Escape, F1, F2 or F12 If Linux Mint doesn't load at this point click here for some troubleshooting options.
