I had PRK 9 years ago now and it was a terrible decision. I had horrible recurrent corneal erosion, would wake up a few nights a week with the most severe pain I have ever experienced.

How does it feel on portability? Is it something that you wouldn't mind carrying to another room if you're working on something? Does the keyboard feel integrated or is it an afterthought? ETA: How is it to type on? ...

[quote]A MacBook Air would serve you well I believe. I’m a web developer and I use a 2017 MacBook Pro. OS X is the big selling point of Macs along with the trackpad. Both are a joy to use and the tight hardware integration is what separates it from something like Windows. Apple doesn’t use the l...

[quote]I'd recommend a Fenway tour over Harvard Square. Harvard's campus is kind of unimpressive. At least from what we commoners can see from outside the buildings. You'll be right next to the North End, and there are plenty of great spots that aren't overly fancy. Honestly, most of the good ...
