I spend 8 hours a day sitting at a desk in front of a computer in a dingy, windowless, government office. The absolute last thing I want to do when I get home is sit at a desk in front of a computer. Unfortunately, the busy life of a renaissance nerd means I need to have a PC handy. The obvious choice was to get a laptop and that’s what I ended up doing.
I’ve never been a huge fan of laptops. The few times I’ve played with them in the past, I found them to be clunky and I absolutely hated touch pads. After some research, I went with a Sony Vaio, getting a nice deal on Amazon. Adding a Logitech wireless mouse took care of my aversion to touch pads.
