Ever since I drowned my laptop, I’ve been bouncing between using a six year old laptop that has to freeze to open a new tab & our desktop, which is fairly new, but obviously not portable.
While my new job has a level of convenience that I’ve rarely had, it also pays less. And that means I can’t afford to replace my MacBook Air with a MacBook Air.
I was in a local Westfield earlier in the week & did notice some laptops in shop windows from around $350.
Clearly, these are not Apple laptops. They are leading my brain to impure thoughts of once again being able to blog anywhere with ease. And not with freezing when I open a new tab or do something complex, such as right click.
But that means I would be going back to Windows. Ah! I don’t know if I can. I was very sick of them by the time I “converted” to Macs 6 years ago, and while I’ve still used windows regularly in employment, I haven’t liked doing so.
Now; I do have an old iPad and it does get a lot of use. It also survived the waterfall that killed my MacBook Air (it was in a case). But I really hate blogging from an iPad. I know some people do, but I just feel more comfortable with a laptop. It works for me.
Can I betray myself and go back to Windows? There’s a funky blue laptop that’s pretty cheap, or one that has a Mac-like keyboard. I can use my desktop for anything that requires processing power; so as long as I can type on the laptop and use the internet, then any old laptop will do. But, Windows…
Gah! Dilemma. The creepiest part of this is that I hadn’t told my husband any of my impure thoughts about buying a Windows based machine…and then he suggested it. Why must he read my mind?
What laptop to do you use? Are you Windows or Mac? Any el cheapo places that I can buy a small laptop?
