A laptop is a great entertainment device – over and above employing it for work and personal enrichment, you will be able to use it for recreation. For example, you will be able to use your laptop to:
- listen to music
- watch movies
- play games
- keep up to date with world affairs
- read about any topic you enjoy
- engage in private conversation with family and friends
- store all your photographs.
Some people use their laptops for entertainment purposes only. You will probably use it mostly for work, but you do not have to feel guilty if you use it for recreation as well.
A great variety of movies, music and games are available commercially. Of course, these come at a price and some games may require additional hardware. But you don’t always have to pay for your entertainment – much material is available on the internet at no cost. You will be surprized to discover how much freeware you could download.
Just don’t fall into the trap of using pirated products – it is unethical. And what a bad example you will be setting for your learners! When someone offers you a copy, first make sure that it is a legal copy and that you are not breaking copyright laws when you use it. Also keep in mind that viruses are often transmitted through unauthorized copies – people who copy electronic material illegally are usually not very scrupulous when it comes to virus protection.
Enjoy your laptop. Use all the facilities it offers you. If you’ve never used a laptop before, entertainment activities may be a painless way for you to become familiar with your machine.
