I spend a good amount of my time on my computer. I spend hours looking up new dinner recipes and coupons for my family; emailing companies about sponsoring giveaways; typing, posting, and promoting said giveaways; and keeping up with old and new friends online. My trusty laptop is about seven years old, with sticky keys and a missing left shift key. I have a one year old, remember? Seriously, have you ever tried to type without using the left shift?
Mom Bloggers Club asked me how an HP Mini 110 would simplify my life. Well, for starters, the extra shift key would be nice. And I bet the fan doesn't run constantly, sounding like a jet engine about to take off. That would be nice too. One of my favorite features is the small size. I spend most of my computer time sitting on the couch, with my laptop balanced on the arm, so I can keep an eye on my little one, but occasionally I like to type while I'm laying in bed. And then there are times, when I need my caffeine fix, and I drag my computer to the local coffee shop. Portability is KEY.
But most of all, I need to simplify my "business" life, so I can have more of the sweet moments with my family. My computer is so slow, that it takes me double or triple the amount of time that it should to get my work done. I don't want to miss out on the silly fun with my son or the precious moments with my husband.
