I'm in the market for a laptop! This week I discovered something new about myself. I focus better on writing in public. I don't know what it is. You'd think I'd be MORE distracted, but when I try to write at home, I see too many other things being neglected and I run off to do those things instead. That's why it's December and my WIP is still in shambles.
So, that being said, I need a new laptop. The one I'm using weighs like 20 pounds, it's nearly 5 years old (which makes it a dinosaur in technology years), and I had to do surgery on it for an entire day just to get it to run. I pretty much stripped it of everything but MS Word. Did I mention the battery life is about 45 minutes TOPS? So if I don't get the seat close to the plug, my writing (typing) time is short. I'd also like to be able to listen to music while I write, and this computer is too much of a sissy to handle that anymore.
I'm a converted Mac user now (since getting my iMac last year that I'm STILL in LURVE with), so I was curious how many of you have MacBooks. My husband has the 13" MacBook Pro, so I pretty much know how adorable it is, but what's the deal with the MacBook Air? Anyone have one? It doesn't have a disc drive, does it? I think that could be a problem. What's the word?
