I got a laptop, a Toshiba, so I could take it to college and use the wireless internet and to homework. I have both a desktop and laptop. I like both and really haven't had a problem with either. I've had the laptop for a year now and have used desktops for a long time. Which one do you guys like better - a desktop, a laptop, or doesn't matter?

Right now I only have a desk top computer. I prefer a laptop. They are smaller, sleeker, and most importantly portable. I'm saving up to get one...

Portability was my reason for it. I also like the ability to not have 100 cords hanging from the computer, and simply closing it to put it in standby and save battery power.

Unless you need to be portable a desktop is better. Its easier to expand or add hardware to, you typically get more power for what you spend to. There are times a laptop comes in handy but I doubt I will ever have a laptop as my main machine.

Yeah, I'll never have ONLY a laptop. I'll always have a desktop too. I've heard stories about how "bad" laptops can be and I haven't had serious problems and only wanted it for the school convenience.

I love laptops because you can bring them anywhere. You can buy a laptop that is just as good or better than most desktops. The only reason I would buy a desktop is so I can upgrade it if I wanted to. It's kind of hard to do that with a laptop.

I love my laptop. I love the freedom I have to travel where I want, when I want, and to take my computer with me. I like being able to use my own computer because I have everything set up just the way I like it. It beats having to re-do everything or search for it, on different computers. I alos like the fact that I don't have to share my computer.
