Anyways. I think I’m in the same boat sorta, but I want rid of my desktops that don’t do any actual work for me. Shit is just in the way. So, laptop. Makes sense to me, and its the world that I’m actually acclimated to. I’m probably one of very few that can base themselves on a laptop and not see any issues.
Look. Everyone has a workflow. And trust me, I’m a god damn workflow enthusiast ok. I use linux to have workspaces, runit, and graphics drivers that work (tho the security and separated /home is a big upper for me too). I don’t care too much about open source unless its a trust thing. On my phone? I have very few things from the google play store. Most of that stuff either came on my phone or I can’t get in f-droid. Like podcast addict. And you know what? Podcast addict is so fucking good I want to run an android emulator on my desktop and laptop to actually haveedcast addict on there too. Is than mad? Not really.
I’m also one of those people that run the premium version of ADW launcher from like android 3.2 because the workflow of it is so tight that my phone could be a virgin. Its just one and done and I know what it will do at all times.
So. To your question. No you aren’t mad. In fact you’re as example of the average nowadays. People like me look at a desktop computer and see literally another universe still. Its where we put stuff that we basically are hands on with all day. My room is a storage bin for projects with a floormat I sleep on, and my desk is my personal space. And thats just not the norm anymore.
Where people used to be obsessed with computers and design, people are now obsessed with augmenting their lives via a computer. Whether its AR or just “whoops lost my tablet. Remote kill, buy another, yay osrs again lets go to the GE and fuck with people” there if I lost my laptop I am fucked. I have about 300 bucks invested in a 180 dollar thinkpad, plus its a workstation. I’d freak. Everyting is local and I hate the cloud. And thats just my perogative.
Get the tablet, try it out. If you go more than 3 months not using windows sell the laptop. If theres still work to e done with it or you play quake one day and like hing it available, keep the laptop, but have the ipad. Theres no reason for only one or the other after all. Its something I’ve been learning recently taht I don’t think people think about anymore.
