This post will breakdown the various tech that Iím using to continue work while travelling and studying in Cairo.
Firstup is hardware. Iím using a medium level Asus Notebook Ė K50ij series with 2gigs of ram, 320g storage, Intel Dual Core T4300.†† This has surprised me with its speed and ability to multi-task with Photoshop, Corel draw, Gmail and a few other browsers. Lastly a 500g external usb powered drive for daily backups of all files, settings, software, etc. Watching movies and playing games is not a priority hence a 15Ē LED backlit screen suits me just fine.
For file management between JHB offices, webclients and myself. We are all using Dropbox.† The 2gig free version is more then enough to keep things going smoothly.† Website updates, advert submissions and text documents are all handled through this. A few successful referrals has bumped me to about 4gigs of online storage.
