Do you prefer laptops or desktops ?

Quite frankly in my honest opinion, there isn't anything you can't do on a desktop, that you can't on a laptop. However, I have a laptop, because for a so-called large one-bed room apartment there isn't a lot of space for things. I've got a printer too, and I like being able to grab the cable and plug, and unplug it when I see fit. I don't need to have the laptop tied down to one place, or have an endless loop of wires running all around like you would with a desktop. I have one cord going to my laptop, and that's the power cord. I log on to the internet through a wireless router I've got set up in the bedroom. And I have the ease to go where I want with it. When I first started out, I had laptops, only because I was constantly going back and forth to school. Now that I'm no longer in school, I like the portiablity. It comes in particurally handy if I have to move. Simply unplug and pack up the componants in one bag, and away it goes.

I would prefer laptop, I just like it more compared to desktop. Yeah one thing I like about it is it is portable, small and I can take it and use it any where I like. Desktop are for home use, it can be repaired easily compared to laptop.

I use my computer for presentations considering that I do a lot of training and conduct seminars on safety and other related stuffs. For me, the most appropriate would be the laptop rather than a desktop. It does offer a lot of advantages in my kind of work considering that I can bring it anywhere. So my answer is obvious... Laptop would be my preference as compared to desktops.

I have had a couple of different desktops in the past, and I liked using a desktop. Two years ago my old desktop broke down and I had to get a new computer. I chose to buy a laptop instead of a desktop, and I am very happy about that decision, because I love my laptop. I have a wireless internet connection, and I am able to use the intenet anywhere in the country. I love the freedom that it gives me. I study online and if I go way for a week or something like that I can just bring laptop and then I can still do my homework and chat to the other students.

i normally work on my desktop. i graduated from a typewriter and i simply love the regular keyboard of a desktop. beside, it is easier to toggle around with a mouse. i have a laptop though, which i seldom use. i only bring it for project presentations and to catch up on work, while traveling or waiting, but rarely.

It really depends on my needs. I like both of them and I actually only started to use a laptop around 1 year ago when I joined the Uni. I like PC's mainly because you can get a lot more out of that thing for your money. A better graphics card,a bigger HDD, a bigger screen.. you simply wouldn't be able to afford a laptop with the same quality for the same amount of money.. But now.. well, if I ignore the whole money thing than I most probably would have to go with a laptop.. mainly because you can carry it around and it doesn't take up so much space.. But if I would have to take money into consideration that I obviously would go for a PC just because it would offer a lot more for my money...

I prefer laptops, not just because of the portability of it, but because it is smaller, and takes up less space, and I can take it with me from room to room should I choose to. I do have a desktop though, and it is used primarily for my router and printer. Right now, I have it off, but should I need to print something, I will have to have it on. I didn't think I would, but I tried printing something the other day, and it wouldn't print, so I know it needs to be on to use it. When I am in here, I am always on my laptop, as I watch tv while I am mylotting, and do ing my other sites. So, my answer is a laptop. Take care, and happy mylotting.
