Update: Scratch that. We’ve got too much to do so I’m taking it with me. It’ll go back next week. Seems I’m getting a new one anyway. Sometimes stuff really works out and this is definitely one of them :)
My MacBook Pro has a tiny issue with the keyboard. The caps-lock and shift keys on the left side stopped working a few months ago, and since I work mainly plugged into a keyboard and mouse it wasn’t that big of a deal for me. Still, it needs to be fixed so I thought it would be best to send it off for repair when I’m going to be out of the office.
I’m heading to Orlando for 8 days on business – we’re setting up and manning a trade show booth for the McDonald’s Worldwide owner’s convention. While I’m there, I won’t be working on client projects because we’ll be in the booth answering questions, etc… so I don’t need the laptop to actually produce anything.
Still, I’ve never been away from my laptop/computer for an extended period of time. For 8 days, starting tomorrow, I will only have my iPhone. I’ll be checking email and communicating with clients, posting to Twitter, and reading my RSS feeds.
I’ll post an update when I get back… this should be an interesting experiment.
