Editor's Notes

December 12, 2018: These days, more and more manufacturers are releasing laptops without a CD/DVD drive, so it can be difficult to find a new model that comes with one. Because of this, we decided to include a some options that may not be the most recent releases, but which still have specs that ensure they won't become out of date any time soon.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
