He stubbornly insisted his computer was a laptop.October 1, 2010
My brother is an artist, a student, and an all-round great guy. He also experiences autism. One result of this fact is that he can be resistant to change. Recently his computer died. It was a hardware failure that affected several components. I could have fixed it, but the computer was already fairly old so I thought it would be a good time for a new machine.
My brother did not.
With some time and effort, I convinced him that a new computer would be the best choice. He spent time picking out a system with all the features and abilities he was interested in. The end result was that my brother is the proud new owner of a very snazzy laptop.
The next step? Now I’m working on convincing him he can use it somewhere besides the computer desk.
