Laptops in extreme and unusual locations

The truly great thing about laptops and netbooks is that you’re not bound to your desk. You can bring them with you anywhere. Some people are taking that to the extreme, bringing their laptops with them to places where most of us wouldn’t.
So, just for a minute imagine you’re not stuck at your desk and join these people who are taking portable computing to new heights. 🙂

We hope you enjoyed this little collection.
And this of course leads to the question, where’s the most unusual place you’ve used a laptop? 🙂
And a big thank you to all the photographers who let us share their pictures with you!
