Writing tool for a Google gal

Acer 720P Chromebook
It’s so chromey and booky!

This is my new baby. A birthday present that came two months early. I’m a Google gal, and am in love with my Nexus 4 cell. I also have an iPad for my business, and I was using the Pages app to start writing my upcoming novel. It was great, but then I discovered Google docs, and put that app on my cell and my iPad. Having my novel update in one place from different devices made me go, “Oooo!”

I had rigged my iPad with a nice aluminium keyboard, and then I saw the Chromebook. It was a new toy, and I didn’t know how to justify buying it, as it wouldn’t be for my business, but for my creative writing. Then I realized that I don’t have to do everything for practicality sake.

After reading through specs like a true tech nerd, I kept coming back to the Acer. I have never owned anything from Acer before, and wasn’t sure about their reputation until I saw very good reviews about their 720P Chromebook with Touch screen.

And after a generous donation from my husband, this is an early gift. I love the keyboard. It is a very light touch, which helps me, because I have osteoarthritis in my hands. It also weighs under three pounds.

I like the thought of having a light-weight laptop that is just mine (MINE, MINE), and solely for my writing. It has a special use. I think I need to come up with a name for it. Yeah, I name everything.

I already am working on Chapter 6 of Life in the Cosm, and this device will help take me all the way. I like how I can even edit my work on the bus, with my Nexus 4, and then return to the Chromebook after work.

Yes, I’m having a bit of a nerdgasm, but that’s ok. It’s fun to try new things.
