laptop nomad

a.k.a. digital nomad

A person who works primarily on their laptop outside of a traditional office setting. Usually freelancers, "laptop nomads" often work out of their home offices and are regularly seen typing away in cafes with hotspots.

Similar to a road warrior in the sense that the "laptop nomad" is able to do his or her work from anywhere, like all good terms this one has morphed to "digital nomad" so as to include all handheld devices.
