Luxury. I still have my first one, the old faithful Panasonic "portable" 8088 with two DD floppy drives, naturally no hd, green monochrome and built-in matrix printer. Dos 2.11. and 512kb ram. Damn hard to drive full lap without crashing in Indy500, but doable.
I've never owned a car and propably never will. If I can't get to place B by foot, bicycle or skateboard, then I'll have to use public transports . I much more prefer other means of transportations over the public ones, but that's just because I hate people.
Aand about the pollution and such. With bicycle I atleast don't produce huge amounts of small particles into the air. If carbon mon/dioxides aren't worrying then at least the unnecessary particles in lungs are. Or at least they should be. So what if the average temperature changes, but what if lungs get sick prematurely?
I could have got myself more into sports, but I don't regret anything from my life. What's done is done and no point of regretting any of it. Mistakes and wasted time? Sure, but not going to happen anymore
