I got a new work laptop this week. I’m in the process of setting it up, and I can already tell it’s going to take some adjusting to — even though it’s the same model I had before. You see, my new laptop is from here in the UK. It comes with all the tiny, subtle differences between a US and UK keyboard.
Most noticably, the Enter key is tall and thin. I have to really reach for it with my pinky. I envision many accidental backslashes in my future.
It’s a tiny reminder, every time I sit down with my laptop, of where I live now. 🙂
