The great thing about the laptop is it means I will be able to write more. Sure, I will be writing out in the "field." Kind of like those romantic places you would picture a writer writing out in the past, which in reality will be whole in the wall coffee shops, libraries and anywhere else I can find free Wi-FI hot spots.
Besides my writing I also plan to use the laptop for my volunteer commitments. Plus a portable PC will make sense down the road as well.
