Although notebooks were designed for the busy traveling businessman always on the go, we lesser goal oriented mortals can also have fun with these latest technology items. There are other things you can do with the technology aside from making money and keeping you from getting bored:

* Surf the net on your laptop

A laptop's portability enables you to surf the net anywhere you are. On the beach, in your dorm, at your Aunt jessie's, etc. Check out the latest news on sport . Google your friend's latest boyfriend. Look for amusing video's and pictures to send home. Check out the latest trends in fashion. Look for your high school romance and start getting re-acquainted. Find new friends and meet old ones on Facebook. Go on a virtual date with someone. Find out the origin of numerous words. Chat with someone in a different timezone and in another language.

* Watch TV on your laptop

With the correct equipment, you can watch your favourite tv on your laptop instead of actually buying a television set. There are many portable high-definition tuners, receivers, and antennas available for laptops such as NetComm Banksia Digital HD USB TV Tuner, Elgato EyeTV DTT Stick and the ComPro VideoMate U3 DVB-T Stick.

* Watch home videos and listen to music on your laptop

Use your CD-ROM player and play whatever music or home video cd you have. You can also watch movies or listen to music online. You can also download music from your mp3 into your computer. If you haveReal Player installed you can get the latest music online. Another software, Kazaa, will allow you to share your music and videos with other Kazaa users.



* Edit pictures and home videos on your laptop

This is something that's both fun and can actually add to your job skills. With the many photo and video editing software out there from such big companies such as Adobe, you can actually fix your own photos or make your own movies. Microsoft's PowerPoint is probably the easiest tool you can use to create slideshows and AVPs.

* the number one use

For most of us, playing games on the laptop is really what computers were made for. The variety of games available is unbelievable from football games, to role-playing games, to I-don't-know-what-else. There are even dress-up games for kids (and kids at heart) and brain teaser games such as Sudoku. There are whole companies being built on the computer-based gaming industry alone. Online lotto is another popular game you can play on the web.Be aware though that most virus's from the net are in downloaded games and can cause unknown applications to wreak havoc on your computer and cause it to crash
