I admit it took me a little while to get used to my first laptop, which is also my first Mac. But I think our recent trip was a turning point. It was sooo nice to be able to take my computer with me. I had no idea what I was missing before.
And at home, it’s given me such flexibility. Before, when I wanted to write my blog, read e-mail, do my on-line banking, etc., I was tied to one place — the loft above the living room where our trusty Dell resides.
And, when I first got my laptop, I still had the mindset that a computer had to have a home.
So I decided that once again the TV cabinet in an upstairs bedroom, which had been adapted to first host scrapbooking, then sewing, would now serve a new purpose — it would be home to the new computer.
But it didn’t take me long to realize portable meant, well … portable!
But my very favorite spot to use “Mr. Mac” is in my favorite reading chair.
Nothing feels better to a woman than multi-tasking, does it? I can sit in this corner of our bedroom and watch TV, talk on the phone, do my knee exercises, read a book, work on my cute little computer … or any combination of those. Perfect.
I’m still learning the ins and outs of my new computer, but I’m getting the hang of it. And it’s definitely been worth the effort.
I just love a good Mac to go, but I’m dieting, so hold the fries!
