Default Laptops or Desktops??

Which do you prefer?? I got a laptop for my birthday and figured I'd prefer it by a long shot, but in reality, while I like the convenience of it, it's sometimes uncomfortable, and I'll prefer the comfort of sitting in a chair at my desktop. When I feel that way, I'll usually just move my desktop screen, and put my laptop up on the table. Overall I'd say I like both equally, but laptops are definitely not as handy as I had once figured they would be. What do you all think??

I got a Laptop a few months ago and I love it! I like how I can take it anywhere with me.

Laptops are overrated, the Mouse is in the middle and the sentences are hard to type


Give me a desktop any day of the week

laptop. it took a little getting used to because it is so different from a desktop, but i love being able to take it anywhere with me- the living room, my bed, the kitchen. it's really convenient & easy to use nowadays.

Cool

Funny you should ask - I just bought my first laptop last night!! In fact, this is my first computer of my very own. I haven't got the internet set up yet (I'm writing this from the library) but I spent last night and the better part of today ripping my CDs onto it. Then I can get my iTunes set up. I'm really excited about it!!!

Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but I'm more picky about the OS. Windows, Unix, Linux, ect. are great but I think the Macintosh OS is incredibly overrated. I stopped at series 7. The problem I have with Macs is that after a period of time, the hardware deteriorates and creates operating issues. These days you also have to send it to the APPLE STORE to get it fixed or the warranty is null. I'm a do-it-yourselfer.

I have both, but I like the laptop better because then I can sit on my bed. I don't like being confined to a chair. Plus....NO MONITOR CORD, NO KEYBOARD CORD, etc. You get me.

Desktop.

I bought a laptop a few years back but I just couldn't adjust to it. I ended up giving it to my dad, who never gets off it

I've always owned desktop computers, but my next computer will be a laptop. Hopefully I'll be getting one soon.

I've had a laptop for two years and I don't think I could go back to using a desktop computer. I love portability!
