Many years ago, we bought a brand new Dell computer. This was something because all my previous computers had been pieced together by my amazing brother who has serious computer skillz (yes, that's misspelled on purpose.) It was a great computer...for a year or two. Then it started getting slower and slower... It's still good for general computation. Word processing and such. But that old dinosaur has since been "unplugged" from online intrigues. It sits, mostly unused, in our bedroom.
I had purchased a netbook as an investment after writing one of my melodramas. It was a great little laptop that was pretty fast, especially compared to the old desktop. And it served its purpose for a number of years. It's still trucking along.
But I knew I needed something bigger and better...especially if I plan to continue teaching and speaking about writing. So I invested in a full-size laptop. It's awesome! Lightning fast and quite a bit bigger than my netbook, but still easily carry able.
I don't care much for the keyboard. It's flat--out of necessity. Being a writer, it's important to have happy fingertips while typing away. What's a girl to do?
Enter the USB port! I connected my very old keyboard from the desktop to my happy laptop...and viola! The perfect solution. I can now type in comfort while using my "All About the Pentiums" computer. (That was for my pal, Weird Al.) I can also elevate my laptop to eye level while typing at hand level. It's the little things in life.
