Thing 27 - Portability

Several months ago I purchased a laptop. I debated long and hard about the purchase. I didn't really need it, but it sure would make life a lot more efficient. I finally took the plunge. My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525 in purple with flowers. I love it. For a long time I didn't like laptops because I didn't like the way the keyboard felt. Either I have gotten used to it or they have vastly improved.

I have taken this laptop many places and logged many hours on it. It has helped me to accomplish more when waiting. It has made it possible for me to work more efficiently. It has enabled me to participate, remember and process more than ever before. Portibility means flexibility and a higher level of productivity for me.

So I am very excited for the opportunity to bring my laptop with me to the MSLA conference tomorrow and Monday and join in the blogging there. If you want to sign on and see what is happening you can check at the conference blog.

Thinking back to a year ago, it is amazing how much technology has become a normal part of my life.
