Site/community/mod philosophy: I fight for the users. (and also the site.)

Eating philosophy: yum, everything tastes so good. I'm originally from Texas, so I do love my Mexican food and barbecue, but I love just about everything else too.

Cooking philosophy: enjoy yourself! Don't measure unless you need precision, don't rush if you've got time, taste everything, and make enough for leftovers.

comment Why would I buy a rice cooker?
I think this is enough of an answer to keep. It's not the most comprehensive, but it points to the main good things about it: you'll use it all the time (so convenience is a meaningful reason), nice ones have timers (an additional reason), and there are whole cookbooks for other dishes (so if you want to you'll get other use out of it).

For baking two sheets at once, see for example cooking.stackexchange.com/a/30736/1672 (the baking time might increase, they might come out a bit different, and you'll have rotate and swap the sheets). For the rest... like Stephie I have no idea what you mean.

We've edited the question to ask about just cooking applications, so I removed the bit about laptops from your answer as well.

I've just edited to ask a cooking question - it's a decent question that we might as well answer. If you want to ask about laptops specifically, I suppose you could try Life Hacks as Catija originally suggested.
