I waited until 2009 to get a laptop despite having sold them while working at a retail store in 2000.

Most of the laptops I had come in contact with didn’t meet my requirements:

  1. Metal body - able to pass “the twist test”.
  2. Glass screen.
  3. Non-graphite trackpad - and no eraser in the middle of the keyboard.
  4. Full-size (or insanely close to full-size) keyboard.
