Havent had a proper laptop in nearly half a decade. Mostly because its been too much fun being offline, and figuring out how to be. Read more
Funding for this project was canceled by the project creator on July 9, 2014.
About this project
Basically, Im trying to buy a computer, a 13-inch MacBook Pro, to be more precise.
Currently all money goes to my plebian lifestyle of groceries, health insurance, and rent. So no, Im not throwing champagne parties (but might consider an invitation).
To continue my professional development, I need my own laptop. Coding, Photoshop, accurate Facebook stalking (hey, dont act like you dont know what Im talking about), and getting in my fill of quality Youtube time are all experiences I havent quite explored to the fullest.
All in all, sometimes, I just feel...different. *shrugs*

Risks and challenges
Mostly, I feel like Im qualified to tell how life without a laptop feels.
With the completion of the project, maybe I'll forget my humble beginnings...
In this Digital Age, no laptop is the equivalent of couture-ing up a Chanel gown without, you know, eyes.
Maybe I'll forget to feel with my heart, and just stream season after season of 'Gossip Girl' instead...
With a laptop, I wont be introduced as the weird girl, 'Hey, this is Elizabeth. She doesnt have a laptop. Or a cellphone. Weird, righhhhht?'
Socially-speaking, I may have to come out of the corner and into the light...
Thank you for a question!
If I was going for a simpler goal, I would have have gone with some face wash:-)
But since I have suffered through the hands of several terrible computers (library, friends', etc.), I just want an Apple.
(The equivalent of the same feeling you get when kicking back in a taxi after lugging 5 suitcases for 15 blocks.)
They're sleek and come with some helpful features---and my biz partner strongly recommends I get one.
Thanks for your question!
If you like, I'll send you a linux USB, which will make that crappy borrowed more or less as good as a MBP, unless you're retarded.
Hey there charming Sasha Shepherd,
The only thing 'retarded' is your sense of time.
Does anyone (besides a pre-pubescent illiterate), still use that as an insult?

Hello Mr. Chris Dietsch,
What thoughtful insight you have---how candid and refreshing!
I give you permission to expand your horizons here:
All the best,
Kickstarter is for people who have idea. You're abusing the system. If you want a laptop so badly you should go out and work for it, life isn't free.
Interesting point Joshua.
Though, what do you tell people who use Kickstarter to make food dishes?
Im not abusing the system; Im apprasing the system's limits, bends, and angles (A system is never a static thing).
Thank you for telling me life isnt free:)
