Researcher in quantum information --- involving algebras over finite dimensional Hilbert spaces, graphs and combinatorics, and vector spaces over ℤ/pℤ.

I habitually edit and re-edit anything I write, as long as I have the time, interest, and ability. I should probably apologize for this tendency, but you will probably have to be satisfied with being warned about it instead.

comment LaTeX vs Word; improvements of LaTeX over the years
Is it easy, in Word, to write equations? How about inline math? Is it easy to write a document template? Do you still have to struggle against the software when trying to create a bulleted or numbered list? Word may indeed have shown substantial improvement, but this is not the same as it being worthwhile to use. If the best thing to be said about Word documents is that you don't have to use Word to edit them... why wouldn't one use LaTeX instead?

comment How to do fractions
N.B. On the actual TeX Stackexchange site, rendering of (La)TeX is disabled, which is why your test in the comment above didn't work.

comment label multiple lines of equations
That's as maybe, but you should not use eqnarray.

comment Spacing after equals sign in align
Wouldn't \begin{align} 2 \cosh t &= e^t \\ &\phantom{{}={}} + e^{-t} \end{align} be better? Then the plus symbol would be inset by the width of the equals sign, with the correct spacing.

comment Laptop recommendation for LaTeX
If you are making documents with lots of TiKZ diagrams, or hundreds of pages, and you frequently recompile your document, performance is an issue. Otherwise, you do not need any very powerful laptop. Buy a laptop based on the screen size, keyboard, and Linux compatibility.
