antique desktop machine is gone

The old antique desktop PC machine is gone. Mobile, wireless lan, not tied to table and cable: start a new lifestyle! I had a dispute recently at inspirationfeed:
ultrabook 027
I wrote: “I like to sit in an armchair or a comfortable sofa while writing my essays; I like to sit in the garden, if the weather is fine; my body feels free now without the old desktop station, I can change my position, I can change the room where I work every 15 minutes, thanks IT industry, times are changing …”
ultrabook 030
– then I got some angry feedbacks by desktop lovers and had to add: “I know, I’m satisfied with my ultra book because I’m only a blogger with a daily post – I’m not a designer, software developer, photo shop specialist; but my body is very happy with that wireless lan working everywhere in my house – I’m no more fixed like a prisoner, tied to the table…”

P.S.:
thanks inspirationfeed, you inspired me to post some photos featuring me working in my empty bureau with ultra book – after table and cable and the whole antique desktop PC and the uncomfortable chair had to say bye-bye
below: before a friend gave me his old Commodore 64 I typed without world wide web = boring!

  1. Love what you wrote. Of course there is something for all. Why must people raise their hackles if everything is not as they want or as they are in life.

    If you wrote that you love a Ford becasue it suits your lifestyle and tastes would that be a negative comment for individuals who drive a Toyota?

    I simply do not understand why people have to complain about just about any and all that is not to their liking.

    These individuals need to get a life and get in an uproar about things that matter for society in general.

  5. I have a little netbook but rarely use it because my serious desk top is so wonderful with its big screen for photos and powerful processor. Sorry I’m one of the old fashioned ones!

  7. Congratulations, you are unfettered Frizz! This is a great way to be – I only wish I had the superpower of magnifying eyesight and more nimble, magnetic fingertips and I would do everything on my phone…

    • the unfettered Frizz – that’s a good slogan, ideflex! And you made me smile with “I only wish I had the superpower of magnifying eyesight and more nimble, magnetic fingertips…” – well, for the eyesight: to read without special glasses I simple turn the letters on the screen ZOOM +200 with a single click; and as for pointed little fingers: I would have problems with iPhone, iPad, tablet – so I choose an ultrabook…

    Beautiful photo’s as usual Frizz and I feel if you are comfortable with your laptop, then it’s your choice for sure my friend. No need for anyone to be angry about. We all do what we choose to do and I like how you do it and it’s true for sure as with a laptop you can do all those things and you are not tied. I have my desktop pc and need 2 screens especially when I do the tutorial translations and that is mainly the reason why I do not use a laptop, but it’s no reason for me or anyone else to get angry at your reasons why you love using your laptop. πŸ™‚

    That old typewriter is an antique for sure and it’s beautiful! Sometimes I also think back to the old days of typewriters and wonder how we survived without the internet and computers. LOL! Thank goodness for it too because nowadays most people can’t even spell properly anymore and to read handwritten essays must be really awful then! hehehehe

  9. In the states many schools no longer teach cursive writing. I think it’s sad. I love my high tech(yikes FT, can’t believe you just went wireless!!!) but there is beauty in a cursive letter. Too bad.

    • In Canada, cursive writing is no longer in the curriculum and very few teachers bother to teach it. Some teachers have tried to keep it alive as an ‘art form’ and I heard of one teacher, here in Toronto that has motivated students to use cursive by introducing them to fountain pens. A stationary store close by has a hard time keeping the pens in stock because the program has been so successful.

    • hi Seonaid / greenmackenzie,
      I like your metaphorical reflection:
      “Most will be washed back
      into the sea as the tide rises again,
      but some are large and here to stay.
      Like some unexpected things
      which are washed into our lives…”

  13. I also like being able to go from room to room to write my blog posts and answer e-mails. When the weather is good I sit on the deck and work but sometimes I feel I’m tied too closely to my computer. My friends tell me I’m addicted. They may be right.

  14. I love sending and receiving letters by way of old fashion snail mail. It is rare that I get them now but I do continue mail them. It’s a way for me to feel more connected.
    I wonder why someone has to be angry about anothers choice as to how they want to do something. I have both pc and laptop but find my pc to be easier since I am not comfortable with the smaller screen of the laptop. Then, I have bits and pieces of paper all over my desk with things I want to write or add to my stories so how would I handle that. I do like answering comments on the laptop because I can sit in a comfy chair as you have shown.
    Great photo’s of your various writing locations. HAVE a GREAT weekend ….

  15. Loved the photos of your at-home lifestyle, and it certainly DOES look more comfortable having a laptop!
    We have both, and like you said in your post, a person’s lifestyle dictates what works for them. Sometimes the laptop is just plain better, and other times I need to use the pc for involved projects. Why anyone would fault you for finding a laptop more suitable for your needs just defies reason.
    Enjoyed your post!

  17. Glad to hear that you are enjoying your laptop. It’s definitely more comfortable, though I use both, laptop and desktop, for different types of work. Liked the pictures, and your cat looks very much like my own.

  19. It’s important to be comfortable. I like the convenience of a laptop and wireless connection. Because of my many pain issues, I had to reconfigure my area per my therapist’s recommendations to be more ergonomic – a detached keyboard on my lap, and mouse to the side of the keyboard so I don’t lift and strain my shoulders and arms. My laptop screen raised on a portable computer table at eye level so I don’t strain my neck by continually looking down at the laptop. A comfy chair so I don’t slouch or hunch over. These changes have made a big difference.

    You have a nice setup at home.
