Desktop computer
Laptop is more mobile but you get a better desktop computer for the same price. What's your decision?

Laptop. Because I simply cannot stop working. Everywhere and anywhere, I'll be tinkering away at something until my eyes bleed. I can't stop myself. HELP ME.

I'm for the laptop! The work I do is not processor bound like CAD, modelling or video / audio production etc. I love laptops because I can work everywhere. And with linux I have basically 6+ monitors, since it supports workspaces. It fits my needs perfectly!

If you don’t need a mean machine that can hold a bunch of professional software that can be a real burden for your delicate laptop’s hardware, always choose a smaller, portable solution. Bigger is not always better.

I would go for a laptop, but only because I travel between home and college several times a year, and I can't afford both. A laptop lets me be accessible to the world around me both when I am home as well as college. I can't even imagine dragging along a desktop every time I take an eighteen hour train journey home or to college.

I don't need a strong computer because I'm not a gamer. I'm actually making programs all day and when I'm travelling I can bring all my work with me and work in another country easily. Since I travel a lot, laptops make things a lot easier.

I think the laptop is the way to go if you travel a lot. For instance you can use the laptop at university, work, on the road and of corse at home. Everything you work, play, listen is anywhere with you ...

Wherever I go my laptop goes with me :) In that way I always have access to my unfinished projects or data, or I can unwind while I wait for something. I work in several schools and it's easier for me to record students' data in laptop, than on papers. (I always get lost in papers :()

I am on the go a lot, travelling regularly from England to California, so having a laptop is invaluable to me. Yes, a desktop at the same price is likely more powerful and will no doubt last longer, but I can't transport the thing 'across the pond' so in my case it's all but useless.

My desktop is in the cloud, so I don't have to carry a notebook with me where ever I go, I simply logon to my desktop from any computer with a connection to WAN. :)

Using iMac for work and small 11' MacbookAir for meetings.
Using Dropbox to store files.
People who only use one laptop and carrying it form work-home just seem out-of-date.

I'm being a lot more productive on desktop, but away from the desk, laptop suits my needs...

Well I work on multiple monitors so I am all for desktop. I use laptop only on vacation and when I need to do some work there every single operation that I do takes more time than desktop. I will change my mind when I can get a laptop with multiple monitors that I can cary around.

I have both but if I have to choose I would still choose my desktop. Laptop is just convenient when working on vacation but my desktop is still my most reliable back-up. Plus laptop is hot and not comfortable for people who have to work hours next to the computer like me.

Desktops are cheaper especially the spare parts inside the CPU. So, replacing the defective ones will not be much of a burden. The same thing cannot be said on laptops. The parts are pricey that it is better to stick to the desktop.

My last computer was a laptop. Well, I called it my "craptop." I had trouble getting used to the smaller keys so I ended up buying a docking station to add a regular keyboard and mouse. I have been a writer off and on for thirty years. I started on a manual typewriter so my fingers are tough on a keyboard. The mobility was nice, in theory, but over a short time the abuse started to really show. The screen eventually snapped off and I bought a real computer. By the way, my craptop was only two years old.

I have both, but and it would be hell for me to give either up, but if I had to, I'd rather to be left with only my desktop pc. I love the big keys of a keyboard and my 23" screen. Laptop is a convenience for working outside of the house but hardware aside (you can always upgrade that) crouching over small screen and trying to write a 20 pages long paper on an even smaller keys of a laptop keyboard is for me torture.

I am wondering cause I do a lot more and I have a great husband who cooks, cleans, shops but I still do much more. Is it because men work longer hours? Does a messy house and not eating properly simply bother women more? Maybe we think men won't do a good job so it's better to do it ourselves? Or is it the "women belongs behind the stove" mentality?
