So it always makes me wonder if I'm missing anything.


Aside from my personal reasons for using a laptop at my office - a few weeks ago my laptop got to leave the house for the first time. My husband and I spontaneously decided to travel: We booked a flight to Indianapolis and started a classic road trip - we rented a car and drove through Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, without having any itinerary or route. We picked whatever small town with a funny name that I would find on the map and stayed at a different hotel each night. At night I would write translations in the hotel room. Insane? Indeed. Fun? Unbelievable!!! Writing while traveling is one unique experience and I never realized the motivating effect that a change of scenery would have on my work. Even the clients were fascinated and kept asking where the translation du jour was written. Coming home, my next assigned job was: Travel in the Midwest. Beautiful timing and it turned out accordingly.

Get your kicks on Route 66, so to speak.

That's how I learned to really appreciate my laptop and all of the sudden I understand colleagues who love working outside their same old, same old office. The adrenaline level is incredible.

Laptop more comfortable Jun 22, 2009

My main reason to use a laptop is that I can take it with me when I travel, but even though that is the main reason, I would still prefer a laptop to a desktop as I find that it is more comfortable to type on a laptop keyboard rather than a standard keyboard.
Of course, I use a laptop with a 17 inch screen and a full keyboard layout these days, but even ten years ago when I used a 14.1 inch model, I found the keyboard more ergonomic. It might have to do with the fact that the keys need les

Of course, I use a laptop with a 17 inch screen and a full keyboard layout these days, but even ten years ago when I used a 14.1 inch model, I found the keyboard more ergonomic. It might have to do with the fact that the keys need less pressure to be pressed, a lighter touch. In the beginning, I definitely preferred an LCD screen to a normal monitor, but today most screens are LCD anyway.
As for cooling mats, it's not something that I've considered buying even though I'm working in a hot place, without A/C. I simply use Pepsi caps or something similar to lift up the back end so more air can flow underneath. Much cheaper.
