Due to a number of fairly positive career-related things that have been happening in my life of late (of which I should probably give details, but I don't want to count my free-range chickens before they become viable organic poulty meat) - the suggestion was put to me by The Wah recently that I should invest in a lap top computer.
Now The Wah proffered this suggestion to me quite enthusiastically, which makes me somewhat suspicious that he's fairly keen to get his hands one of those portable bad boys himself. However, it's an interesting point. If, as I hope, I may be able to get semi-regular writing work, perhaps it is a piece of technology I should investigate. Considering I have a home computer, the Wah's home computer, and numerous work computers to take advantage of, and considering I'm still in hock paying off the plasma TV, the emergency dishwasher and my body corporates, it's not something I need straight away.
But I thought I'd put it out there. Do any readers/bloggers out there own laptops? Which kind? What would you recommend? Despite The Wah's life-long nose-upturning at Apple, he actually suggested a MacBook might be best for my purposes - which would be primarily words, music, photos, and maybe a bit of video editing. I'm not a computer gamer (especially not with a shiny happy Wii in the living room), so I don't need whiz bang graphics or sound, just enough that everything looks pretty. Yes, I am that much of a girl.
So please, everyone out there in Blogger land, let me know your recommendations: brand, price, memory, hard drive size, processor, keyboards, sexiness etc etc.
