A Move

Not an actual move, but a laptop move. I think this can be as time consuming as a real move sometimes!

I have an old laptop, but it's been acting a bit suspicious lately so I thought I better take the plunge and actually start using the work laptop I was sent 3 months ago. The thing is I have everything already installed on my personal laptop. Outlook, all my bookmarks, ACT (our horrible contact manager database) and other things. Not to mention all the passwords to silly sites like Kodac.com that I have no clue what my password is but my laptop has it memorized. Those things are going to take forever to clean up!

Right now I am on my new computer but need a break. I realized I have not posted in a while so I thought I would knock out a quick one. So...here is a question for the 5 people that read this post...can a person function with two computers or does one really just need to use one? I can't decide if I should move most of what I do to my work laptop or try to use two. I like the idea of keeping it separate, but I think I might get tired of working off two laptops. Do most people work from two? Please post your thoughts in the comments section.

I have a personal laptop and a work laptop. I don't feel all the way comfortable putting my photos and saving my passwords into my work laptop, since it's not really mine. If I actually owned the work computer then I wouldn't worry, I'd use the same computer for everything.

I say TWO!!! Keep it separate... it's better, in the end....
Hope you are doing well... When did you say you're coming here and are you coming to Paris???

I have started using my bf's fancy new one but don't save passwords and stuff so it's such a relief to use my little netbook with all my personalized info. So it's the best of both worlds, fancy and fast new one but also mine for MY stuff, lol.

Yes...I do believe I am going to follow all of your examples and use two laptops. I certainly don't want all my personal stuff on the work laptop. Not sure what I was thinking!
