Laptop or desktop, why I wish I had a laptop
I have a 4 year old PC, and whilst a PC seems more sturdy than a laptop, I am stuck to one position in the home, the reason being is the computer is not Wifi capable, yes it is a few years old. I did get one of those Wifi card usb flash thingymabobs, but for some reason it did absolutely diddly for my desktop, so I am still wired in, I feel like a dog on a long leash.
My desktop PC is placed in the corner of our living room, which is the hub of our family life, a family with 2 adults, 4 children and 3 dogs, so you can imagine the lack of quiet, needed to concentrate on my writing ventures. There is always someone either asking me an inane question, screaming, arguing, fighting or just playing loudly. The 1 year old has temper tantrums for pretty much anything, and the neighbors seem to think that if I am sat at my computer then I am obviously only on Facebook or something, so can be bugged for a cup of coffee an a rather dull run down of their equally dull lives.
If only I had a laptop I could hide in my bedroom and work during those times when my children were at school and the baby was having a nap, instead of being in total eye view, meaning if you stare straight through my living room window( where did people's etiquette go?). That is if it is not one of those irritating neighbors that knock the door, look through the window, shout through the letter box and then ring the house phone and your cell phone. I mean WHAT? I just knock and if no one answers, they are either not in or don't want company right now.
A laptop means that I would be able to sit in the garden and enjoy the summer instead of trying to work all day and miss the beautiful summer. For the last two years I have been trying to make a presence online and felt that I could not afford to walk away from the PC at all. There may be passive income in article writing online on your computer, but that should not be even considered passive for the first two years in my opinion.
So there, they are my reasons for needing or wishing I had a laptop instead of a desktop Pc, because it would give me more freedom.
