After 9 years as a tech writer, I finally switched to using a laptop as my
main machine this past February -- and now I'll never go back to desktop (if
I must have only one machine).

Because my Gateway Solo has so many ports, I don't need a docking station. I
have a regular mouse and keyboard hooked into the laptop when it's at my
desk. I also boosted the machine about 4 inches above desk level.

I was originally planning to plug a desktop monitor into it, but I found
that the Gateway monitor quality far exceeded that of my big monitor! It's
so sharp and clear it's a joy to use, and I think the 15-inch screen is big
enough. So get one with a great screen, lots of ports (especially USB) and
all that other good stuff, and you'll be glad. It makes your work life so
much more flexible.

BTW, for the world's best-designed laptop backpacks and cases, see The backpacks
are incredibly padded, strapped and compartmentalized. They come with straps
that also let you carry it as a briefcase.
