I enjoy a Mac to go, but hold the fries!

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.

I’ve spent many enjoyable hours up there.

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!

I can sit in the living room and watch TV with Hubby while also playing with my computer.  (Sorry for the grainy picture. I forgot to use a flash.)

One of my favorite spots to use it is sitting at the kitchen island, as I’m doing right now.  There’s a power strip that runs under the overhang of the island — perfect for plugging it in.

But if I sit there too long and get uncomfortable without a back rest, I just move to the table in the eating area.

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!

    I love this post! I was the exact same as you when we got our lap top! I thought it needed a home, but soon realized I can take it with me where ever I go and do other things while on the computer! I’m so glad you are enjoying your new Mac laptop! We LOVE ours!

    I knew you’d fall in love with Mac. His charms are irresistible! I’m glad you’re happy with your purchase, Sandra. 🙂

    Julie — Thank you for being one of the ones who spoke so favorably about Macs that I it gave me the courage to make the switch. I’m now very glad I did. 🙂

    Linda — Doug may be a (self-proclaimed) tightwad in some ways, but he loves his “honey” and I have faith in him that if he thinks you reallllly want a Mac, you’ll get a Mac. What a good guy. 🙂

    Hilary — Thank you for also being one of the ones who encouraged me to give a Mac a try. What great advice. 🙂
