“Do you take notes on the computer?”, Ann Patchet asks Rowling. “Do you have like old disks?”
She answers with slight hesitation,”Hmm, it sounds like a product placement but still I’m going to say it.. Hmm.. The MacBook Air changed my life. (claps from the audience) It did! It changed my life. I used to think,’How can people carry the laptop around? It’s so heavy, clunky, but it (MacBook Air) is notebook-size and it’s just great. And I can now work, realllyy… anywhere.”
Well, before that, in 2006 Rowling was seen finishing her final draft of Harry Potter series on a Hewlett-Packard laptop, which looked, by today’s standard, so cumbersome.
I wonder whether Rowling ever writes on a BlackBerry, too. If so, she might be just writing anytime anywhere. Like me and you.
