Hello, ladies and gentlebloggers! I have fantastic news- I recently bought myself a new laptop, and it arrived this evening! I may or may not have completely forgotten about going to karate in my excitement.
It's a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series 2-in-1, so I can flip the lid all the way back and turn it into a tablet. A rather large tablet, mind you, but here's the awesome thing-
IT'S LIKE HAVING A HUGE DIGITAL SKETCHBOOK.
The laptop came with a free trial of Autodesk SketchBook, which I used to create this lovely quick sketch fox:
(I had to take a screenshot... I don't think the free trial has a way to export photos as anything other than a TIF, and Blogger doesn't like those)
It was pretty neat! It's a bit different from my Wacom Bamboo Splash tablet, which didn't have a screen of its own. I'm looking forward to getting a better stylus to work with.
This laptop is also pretty great for reading comic books online. I usually use my Marvel Unlimited app to read comics on my iPhone, but the screen is kind of small. My laptop screen is anything BUT small. One could say that the digital comics I'm reading are larger than life. Because they are. They are literally bigger than actual comic books.
I'm still getting used to Windows 10 and my new hardware, but I'm pretty psyched about my new laptop so far!
