My laptop has been down for weeks running to months and I have to make do with my phone (that’s what I got). I have to write on this 6.4 inch amoled screen. I must tell you, it’s not in any way funny, but I make do.
At first, the idea of writing on phone was one of excitement for me. I was like “to hell with bogus laptops. What do I even need a laptop for when I could do everything on my phone?”
I was like “you type fast on phone, well, not as fast as on laptop but fast enough, so why worry? Just tiptoe into making your phone your new creative outlet.”
But that relationship didn’t last too long. After a while I began to feel constrained. You know, I began to miss the freedom that comes with a bigger screen, I began to miss my laptop; the comfortable feel of my fingers on the home keys, my palm on the palm rest.
Don’t get me wrong, you can actually do anything with your phone. You can write articles, blogposts, do reports, submit CVs and whatnot. But after a while, you begin to miss that homely feeling that a 15 inch laptop brings you, that authority, that confidence to search the web and open a thousand tabs if need be.
I know what you’re thinking; why not just get another laptop?
Hmm… you might be right. You miss it get it, right? Well, let’s talk about how the laptop came down in the first place, something to do with the VGA (video graphics array)… let’s just say I got pissed and, to hell with the laptop. Friggin metallic dumb-head cases. They are so fragile! Just a couple of power-ups and suddenly something tiny gets ruined that affects the whole thing.
Now, I’m really going into what makes a laptop formidable (so to say), what differentiates a laptop from a laptop, 4k tech, resolution, processor, cores, 2 in 1s, and the likes. Let’s just say sometimes adversity brings with it a hunger for knowledge.
