I know. You may be a guy or gal working in an office. Or, you may be a penny-pinching startup CEO like me.
But even I justified paying $275 for an Intel X25-M SSD. And, I’ve got the perfect example of why it makes business sense.
Sure, 17 second startups are great. But, I am in love with my NeatReceipt system. It has saved my bacon over the past year countless times. From finding proof of warranty to tackling my taxes. I can just feed documents through the NeatReceipt, and drop them in my shredder. They’re digitized, in PDF-ready format… and you can search through the text of each and every document on the fly.
You literally can scan every receipt, even fast food ones, and keep track of where every penny goes. I don’t use it for that, but if you want to know how many Burger King TenderGrill, or how many Jack in the Box Chicken Fajita Pitas I order in a year (both rather healthy fast food choices, I might add), it’s as simple as typing that into NeatWorks.
Unfortunately, if you scan every receipt, your database gets crowded. Everything works, but the app does take awhile to load. And, your system won’t multitask as well as it did (you can still surf the web, check your email, just don’t expect to run Windows in the background).
The good news is, this is where the Intel X25-M shines in office situations. With 700 MB worth of receipts, it loads in under 20 seconds. This took about a minute and a half on a hard drive.
