Iâ€™ve been out sick for the last two days, and Iâ€™m pretty sure whatever I got was contagious because thereâ€™s been a ton of people out. Itâ€™s been a lot of sitting with the dog, half-watching nature documentaries and half-hoping my head would stop pounding. Not sure what it is, but I feel mostly over it today and Iâ€™m mostly just irritated I had to burn two days of sick leave.
Went ahead and grabbed a 13â€ MacBook Air last night. I was hoping Diana would make use of the Surface Pro 3, but it doesnâ€™t sound like sheâ€™s terribly interested, so Iâ€™m gonna put it up for sale I guess. I think Iâ€™m going to try to get her to use it at least a little bit, see how she likes the stylus and such before committing to that. If she doesnâ€™t want it, itâ€™ll offset almost all of the cost of this machine. Initial impressions are really good, Iâ€™m really happy that itâ€™s got an SDXC slot, that simplest route to expandable storage.
I have no regrets about buying the SP3, it was the nicest laptop Iâ€™d ever owned, except for its inability to actually sit on a lap. Now that using it in that manner is more and more likely, and given the change in workload, itâ€™s just not the right tool for the job. Not getting hung up on buying new gear to help me either be productive or relax on my own time is important. Diana pointed out that this could be seen as an extension of keeping work at work. I have a very good test lab setup on my computer at the office. Thereâ€™s no reason anymore to extend that to what Iâ€™m doing on what little off-time I am afforded.
