So this is the tiny little laptop of my dreams. Okay, actually I dream about owning a PowerBook, but short of selling a kidney that’s not going to happen anytime soon. This little gizmo retails for about $300 and is small enough to fit in my purse. It runs on Linux and is solid-state. According to Whit that means no moving parts to break down. That’s always a good thing in electronics, or so I’ve been told.
I’ve needed a laptop since forever. Right now I do most of my writing on a desktop in the room I optimistically refer to as my office. I’d prefer to be in the den with Whit while he watches a movie or a game so we can be together. Sometimes I write in longhand on a legal pad, but a laptop would be great.
This little dude is tiny. They let me play with one in Target. Fortunately, I have little T-Rex hands so it works fine, but for someone like Whit who has massive hands, it would be out of the question. It will also double as an e-book reader, though you have to download an app so that it’ll read portrait instead of landscape. I hope it’s not too complicated.
