But remember: There’s a whole range of other cool things you can do with a laptop or 2 in 1 device, from making your own music mix and discussing your favorite deejays with friends worldwide to scrapbooking and creating an online photo album for your parents’ 25th wedding anniversary.

Portability and Battery Life - Take Whatever You're Doing On the Go

Your laptop’s portability is likely one reason you purchased it in the first place. You can take your work, schoolwork, or hobbies with you wherever you go. If the only free time you have is during your lunch break, but it’s a twenty minute drive to the mall, just take your laptop to a local delicatessen and shop online for those new shoes you’ve had your eye on for weeks. If you have recently taken up rock climbing and want to join a club of like-minded people, use your laptop to research climbing clubs in the area. If you love online gaming but don’t want to be stuck inside all day, find a quiet spot in the park where you can maintain a higher score than your friends on Candy Crush Saga*.
