Rich from Garden Grove, CA
Digitizing Files

Rich has a bunch of filing cabinets full of papers he wants to digitize. Thoughts on how to do that? Leo says the first step is to get a network-attached storage (NAS) so he can access the data. But you can also use a laptop with a 1TB or larger hard drive. That'll work too. To scan, the Epson Fast Photo has a sheet feeder that enables for high speed, high volume scanning. The feeder will scan up to 1 page per second. Another option is Neat Receipts document scanner. Both will create PDFs pretty quickly. 

Would it work with a Chromebook? Leo says it should.  You could use Evernote to scan them in as well.
