Sugar Bowl, Round 8: Laptop vs Binder
« on: Dec 25, 2012, 01:28 pm »
An interesting match up here at the Salad Bowl: an old-school classic team going up against the device that many have heralded as its direct successor. Both are frames for large amounts of information contained within. Both fold shut to hide away the world when the workday is finished.

The Laptop requires recharging and is pretty darned fragile, but has the added bonuses of games, wifi and backlighting. It's more shiny and flashy, but one must remember how it struggled in its prior match to squeeze out a 3 point margin against the humble Pencil. If it hasn't learned its lesson quickly, it may be in for another drubbing from an old-school opponent. And what an opponent! The Binder is a tried and true favorite, doubling as a clipboard, preserving scripts intact in archival format, successfully keeping the entire prompt book in one accessible location.

Valiant competitors. Both have beat three other opponents to get this far but only one will move on to the finals. Who will it be?

You decide. Preferably before Friday at midnight, CST.

I am disappointed with how far behind the binder is. In my experience, I can get things done faster with a laptop, but binders don't crap out on me nearly as often or as suddenly. Viva la binder!
