Doing The Notebook Shuffle

At this point I hope my adventures in trying to find the perfect laptop have become a font of humor for all. I'm a little embarassed myself. So yeah, last year I bought an adorable little Fujitsu P5020D, loved it to death, but returned it because I felt I ought to have a Tablet PC to draw on. Then I bought a (decidedly nonportable) Cintiq 18sx display table on which I've been drawing the strip since February. Then in August I bought a Toshiba Portege M205 because I'm on the road more and more. Today I listed it on eBay. Because the Cintiq is so much better to draw on that I'll just make the extra effort (which I'm already making) to stay ahead on strips so I never need to draw them on the road. And I've just ordered a Fujitsu P7010D, which is the (nicely) updated version of the one I got last year. So I'll be back where I started, with an adorable ultraportable that lets me write, program, and watch movies on the road. And that's the perfect computer for me. I think.
