Me so tiny
Thanks to my fantastic new employer I am now the owner of wee laptop to the left. Completely having to orient myself to all this wireless business, and still working next to desktop computer (fab new Gateway purchased prior to job offer; we aren't a total computer wasteland over here, really).
I haven't written poems on a laptop in years. The last time I used a laptop for any length of time was when I took my comps for my Ph.D. back in...2001? Of course I didn't have the battery charged, and of course the power went out in stately University Hall, but because the computer was a laptop I was able to carry it down from the 18th floor, plug it in elsewhere, and recover my lengthy response asap, pass my exams, and graduate. I guess laptops are on my side. I feel a friendship coming on.
So y'all...laptop or desktop? Writer friends, have you had better results with one or the other? And why are my wrists so hot?
