I'm a technical writer for an engineering and infrastructure software company. I work remotely from my home office (or local coffee shop or a hotel room from where ever I happen to be and so on). It's the sort of job that 99.99% of the world would hate but I happen to love. I spend most of my days describing how to use esoteric software or taming the insane documents developers send me into a user manual. I also get to work with some of the brightest people from (literally) all over the world.
I suppose the most obvious question is: why two computers (mac & windows)? The windows laptop is my work machine. My employer creates Windows-only software and the authoring tools I use are also Windows-only. The mac is my personal desktop, which also gets used for e-mail, web, etc. during the day as to not tax my already over-burdened laptop.
