Oh, I’d love to use a laptop, but like I said, the keyboards suck.
I do a lot of writing, including a newspaper column (locally), plus all of my photoshop work, and I’m more comfortable in my office, alone, with a 1 TB hard drive, good keyboard/mouse, and a 24’ monitor.
For casual surfing I use my wife’s I-pad when not in my office.
^^ and a 24 monitor ^^
Wow, I had no idea they were available that big. I guess there are some folks with eyes weaker than mine.
Is your office a movie theater?
Just like you don't have to use the built-in monitor, you also don't have to use the built-in keyboard or pointing device either. You can leave it closed and plug in an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and it becomes essentially a micro-desktop. Cheesed me off when the morons forgot about this and started putting the power switch inside where you have to open it up to turn it on. It WAS perfect for micro-desktop use; now it's merely almost perfect because they're idiots. D'oh! They were probably trying to force you to buy their docking stations.
