I’ve written a handful of posts lately about my new netbook for writing that I have been using. That has led some readers to query about whether or not I had abandoned by my other computers in favor of the writer’s netbook. Far from it, my desktop computer remains my primary writing computer and a very big laptop serves frequently in the task of writing both within the home office and when I go somewhere instead of working from home on my business.
The netbook has gotten the attention here on the freelance writing blog lately because it is the newest edition to the writing family. As such, it still occasionally surprises with what it can do to help improve the writing business. The other business computers are established members of the team. They have been tweaked, customized and configured for maximum value to ArcticLlama freelance writing. Changes, other than upgrades, are not lightly made to these other writing systems. In other words, they are so useful and reliable that they are seldom noticed. Fortunately, they are not people, so I don’t have to feel bad about that 🙂
Best Computers For Writing Professionally
I thought it might be useful to mention what kinds of computers I use in my freelance writing business along the role each system fills and how it came to be used for that function. In that way, if you are looking to start your own freelance writing business, or if you are already a professional writer looking for tips or advice on what kind of computer hardware is good for professional level writing, you can read through these posts and get real world help.
These days, too many computer reviews are either biased – or not impartial, if you prefer – or, even more likely, based upon too little actual use of the computer system in question. It is simply impossible to get a real feel for how good a computer will be for high-end writing from just a few hours, or even a few days of testing. To really know what a computer is good for, you have to use it in multiple phases of life and business. It needs to be used during crunch time, during sunny days at Starbucks, and during those days where the sight of your home office makes you want to crawl back into bed. Only then, can you truly know what works, and what does not work.
In order to maximize the value of these posts, as well as keep them short enough that they can be read and digested by busy writers, I will spread them out of the next several days. Hopefully, by the time you get a chance to read them all, there will be some very helpful advice and tips for buying new writing computers or other gadgets.
