Sooooooooooooo that is where you all come in. Can you please leave a comment, (or send me an email), stating pros or cons for either type? Or stories that might help me make up my mind? Have you had both types of computers? Would you please give me ANY advice? I’m getting desperate.
Here are some of my pros/cons, (I wanted to save you the time if you think of some of the same things).
The convenience of taking it ANYWHERE! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I could work on the computer in the car (On the straight stretches of course…I am prone to get carsick), or in the living room, in bed, outside…can you get wi-fi outdoors?
I could take it on client meetings to have easy access to the deigns I’ve created.
I’d be able to download photos, alter photos, burn CDs, work on blog entries and on any freelance work wherever I wanted.
After talking with John we realized there isn’t a real need to take the computer places, and that most places we travel to do have computers. (And I really can go 48 hours without checking my email…if I have to).
It’s only $300 cheaper than the desktop, which has a better system.
It would most likely be considered “John’s”, not mine. (I know…selfish).
Is it a pain to carry it around? Do I really want another bag?
I would get the new desktop and John would get my old one. (More selfishness…but at least I’m honest!)
It has better features, (more memory, hard drive space…I think?), for only $300 more.
It would be great to use for my design work…it would be faster, and because of the HUGE monitor.
John says we could get a new desk with two workstations that FACE each other! How awesome would that be? (Sorry to make some of you gag).
Immobile computer…however since I’ve never had a laptop I wouldn’t know what I was missing…right?
I was hoping that after making this list things would be easier…maybe I should prioritize them? I KNOW! Maybe one of you will give me the answer I’m looking for!!
