Julio Ortiz on the 'Writers Notebook'

Maybe it's just me, but you don't need to spend a lot of money to get a decent notebook that will allow you to write that short story or article. And I'm not saying that you have to go on eBay and look for a used notebook, because I wouldn't wish that on anyone. If you have ever scoured eBay for a notebook, then you know that you want to commit seppuku by the time you're done. Here are the caveats:
  • A lot of auctions don't come with every necessary part.
  • A lot of older notebooks are overpriced.
  • When a notebook does come with all of the parts, there is a pitfall. The battery may not hold a charge. And what's the point of a notebook with a bum battery?
  • Notebooks, especially older ones, can be very finicky. Keyboards go bad, hard drives die, or the system board fries. All the while, you're left without a warranty and have to pay even more money to either fix it or replace it.
See why I hate notebook shopping?
But I'd like to share an alternative.

It's called a Windows CE notebook.
