Re: Give me a chunkier laptop
I also value lightness, but I disvalue thinness because when you're using your laptop without any available surface upon which to place it, what you actually need is a decent way to grip it with one hand while typing with the other.
My old Dell was great, because it had the extended battery that stuck out of the back, forming a lovely "handle". I could balance it on one arm while holding this handle and work on it while standing in a plant room that has no safe flat surfaces.
My current one is so small and thin that it's impossible to use on the move. I have to find somewhere to put it down.
Thinner alone is less portable.
