After years of Internet shop writing, I finally have a notebook computer. Strangely enough, I’m in an Internet shop paying ten bucks an hour for wi-fi… some things never change.
Now before you go after me with flaming torches and rusty pitchforks, let me explain. Every job requires a tool. Carpenters need hammers. Plumbers need wrenches. While a writer like myself would do well with typewriters, there’s much more prudence and relevance in having a notebook computer. I didn’t ask for a notebook on the basis of pecuniary canons of taste. I need a convenient way to write, and so here I am with the 21st century equivalent to quills and parchment rolls.
The Marocharim Writing Machine is one made by Lenovo Corporation, powered by a 1.73 GHz Intel Dual-Core processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 160 GB of hard disk space. Yes, it’s an overpowered typewriter… well, it gets the job done.
