Computers make dreams come true

It’s been quite some time since I’ve used a desktop computers on a regular basis. I’ve used a laptop for a few years. My first laptop, which recently died, I acquired from a client. We made an agreement for him to pay me one half of my fee in cash and the other half in a laptop. Why didn’t I just purchase one? His business included finding computer items at extremely low cost. So I transitioned from desktops to laptops.

I’d like to get a desktop again with all of the features that enable me to sync up my laptop. That would make it easy to use both computer systems and get maximum performance out of each. At least that’s what I think.

A laptop is convenient for on-the-go usage, but a desktop allows for a stationary workstation that has all the elements you need to maintain an effective home office. Really. I often have daydreams about walking into my perfectly decorated and maintained office with my laptop in the coolest bag ever. I unload it and pop it into the docking station that’s connected to my desktop computer. With all systems operational, I begin working on my second book. The first one has reached bestseller status.

Maybe getting a desktop will make my dreams come true. (If you’re not smiling now I don’t know what to do.) Anyway, what do you prefer – desktops or laptops:
