klickDo you guys care to buy extra equipment when buying a new laptop? Such as extra AC-adaptor, extra primary battery, extra secondary battery, docking station, etc.01:53
joacimI do not need backup or extra batteries. I need neither of those01:56
klickYou never take your laptop with you?01:59
joacimI do02:02
joacimI take it with me every day02:02
joacimwhen I go to the university02:02
klickOkay. :)02:03
joacimI do fine with a single battery (it lasts 4-5 hours), and I do not need random spawns of ac-adaptors everywhere02:04
klickI was more thinking about always having one AC in the bag and one permanently at the desk at home. So you don't have to pick it up and down all the time.02:05
joacimI keep mine in the bag that I keep near my desk02:07
joacimand i do not pick it up and down all the time02:07
klickokay >(02:08
joacimwhat i did buy extra was video adaptors02:08
joacimyou never know when you need to use s-video or vga equipment =)02:08
klickI keep it plugged in when I'm and I take it with me when I leave home, approximately once a day. So I have to unplug it once and plug it in when I get back, I'm lazy. :)02:09
