I recently started a new day job, which I am happier at, but I am able to do less of Internet Marketing. Computer access at work now is very limited, making it hard to use my lunch hour effectively. This time of day is one of my more productive times, as I’m not burned out like I often am after work in the evenings.
To get this time back, I have invested in a Netbook (small laptop). I have been wanting one for a while, just because its a gadget, and its pretty cool, but really didn’t have a reason, and not traveling much, dwindled the little reason I did have. After doing some thinking of how to make use of my lunch hour, I came to the conclusion that a netbook with a Cellular Data connection will be worth the price of a monthly data connection. Although its hard to sign up for another re-occurring monthly bill, it doesn’t take much work to be able to re-gain the cost of the monthly bill.
I started looking at a mac laptop at first, since I really like their PowerPoint software, and some other apple features. After a very quick glance though, the starting price tag of $999, I got scared off pretty quick. After doing some more poking around at laptops, I found refurbished Netbooks going for $200. This is the price range I like, and it didn’t take me long to do the math. Even if it didn’t work out very well, $200 for a computer is a pretty good deal.
I went with the Asus Eee 1000 with a 40gb solid state Hdd. All of the features are pretty similar of the netbook family. One of the biggest differences though is having a static or spinning hard drive. The static hard drive is basically like a usb memory stick, and requires very little power, unlike a standard hard drive.
So here is my first productive lunch hour on the Netbook. I will tell you about my data connectivity next time. I feels good already getting some of my time back.
