Do You Use Your Laptop Outside?

There's nothing more torturous than seeing a gorgeous sunny day outside, children laughing, dogs running, grass growing. . . and you have to stay inside and work on your laptop.

Of course, brave souls with full batteries attempt the outdoor laptop adventure all the time, and why wouldn't you when more and more city parks are offering free WiFi?

I've attempted it a few times; the last time was a balmy day in Texas, when the best signal I could get with my wireless card was outside — and luckily, the deck I was on had an outlet and enough shade to avoid having to use a stare-inducing Lapdome. I have to say, it's kind of fabulous if you have all the right conditions.

So with the sunny weather finally tiptoeing out, tell me — do you ever use your laptop outside?

I did when I was in school on campus, but now that I'm in the real world I don't do it that often. Maybe once I have a backyard!

Since I am in Canada, and such a few free wi-fi spots, I can't say I do laptop outdoors. *sigh*

Yes! I love going outside on my porch with my laptop and coffee and enjoying the fresh air! I think its much more enjoyable that way. Although I do have to sit in the shade to see my screen, that is the downside.

Nope! For my design classes I usually need to be around a printer.
