We all have our favourite kind of computer, so whats yours. Do you prefer laptops because they are portable and you can use them anywhere or do you prefer the amount of technology on a desktop ?

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...

Hi there...i prefer desktop than laptop.i feel more comfort to use desktop.it is because of its technology.i would have a high tech desktop with high feature with the same price as an average laptop.

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.
