Modern Nomads: Who says that you have to live in only one city? Freelancing has its benefits, namely that you can live anywhere you choose and work remotely. With a flexible job and high power, portable computing device (read: laptop) you can hike in San Francisco, hit New York’s bars, and enjoy Chicago’s summer festivals and Miami’s beaches all in the same month without even having to quit your job. If you can deal with the time changes and long-distance plane rides, what’s to stop you from working in the South of France for the summer? Jay Z does it; you can too. Or when you’re feeling nostalgic (and patient) sleep in your childhood bedroom and hang out with your family. A computer like Sony’s Vaio Duo 11 makes the modern nomad lifestyle easy. Here’s how to use your trusty laptop to get the job done:
While it is possible to be a modern nomad without a home base, it’s comforting (and economical) to have an apartment somewhere. Sites like AirBnB.com make it safe and simple to swap your loft in Manhattan for someone else’s beach house in Morocco. The full HD front and rear facing cameras on your Sony Vaio Duo 11 are great for taking high-resolution images of your pad.
Any library, coffee shop, or backyard patio (it’s probably best not to work in a bar for obvious reasons, save it for after five) can work as your makeshift office. The Sony Vaio Duo 11 has an optional, additional battery that can keep you unplugged and productive longer. The LCD screen is scratch resistant to survive the BART in California, the tube in London, or the seatback pocket in front of you.
The Sony Vaio Duo 11 lets you exchange messages, music, pictures, and more to your friend’s devices with one touch. You’ll be able to keep in contact with the pals you made skiing in Jackson Hole last month and find friends of friends on Facebook who wants to surf in Baja today.
The digitizer stylus pen turns your gadget into a high-tech notebook. You can write, draw, and tap while the stylus detects pressure, weight, and brush size. This technology is a genius for graphic designers, writers, or anyone who needs to get their creative juices flowing. With all the travel you’ve been doing, you’ll have loads of inspiration.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to hit the road, get to work and write your story. Pick up your new travel companion the Sony Vaio Duo 11 now by clicking here!
