A computer for your lap

I think it's only when you travel on trains and planes that you really see lap tops living up to their names. On Friday night going home the woman clearly heading towards Heathrow on the Piccadilly Line reminded me of one of the very few times I used a computer on my lap at Edinburgh airport.

She looked much more used to it than I was and although I felt very cosmopolitan and well travelled at the time, I was having no end of problems using the stupid little sensor instead of a mouse. I'm quite old skool and at meetings I alway plug a real mouse into my lap top.

Normally the only computers I've managed to snap on the tube are ever so slightly larger and less portable than neat lap tops - regular readers might remember the picture of the
young lovers clutching their PC and the computer which may have possibly been travelling by itself.
