When was the last time you used a desktop computer?

I can't remember the last time I used a desktop. I've been using a laptop since I entered College. Personally, I think a desktop is quite limited in mobility. You can't move it around if you want to. A laptop on the other hand, can be moved around and is handy. Mobility is a very important factor to me as I carry my personal computer around most times. Personally, I think desktops are gradually phasing out of the system and are being replaced by laptops. What do you think?

I'm on it now and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last time either...

Nice choice! I hope it's equally as fast.

@Koomanter Yeah, it's pretty fast... I don't have too much stuff in it that would slow it down.

I think desktops will eventually become obsolete. But I love mine because I can actually type on a keyboard.

I also think so, unless probably there's a breakthrough in the desktop world.

The last time I used a desktop was months ago. I basically use my laptop.

I use it everytime when my child wants to listen rhymes while eating. Agree with you that desktops are phasing out as laptops are easy to carry whereever we go and comfortable to use it.

A few days ago, I went to my secretary's desk to print something because I didn't bring my laptop in the office.

I always use a desktop. I don't care about mobility. I prefer a larger screen and easier keys. I find greater control on a desktop than a laptop. You aren't living life glued to a computer wherever you go.

I have one at work, so the last time I used it was when I turned in my time sheet for the end of June. I'm off until September, so that's how long it'll be before I use one again. Laptops and tablets are taking over.

The question is what do you use instead, meaning they are phasing out.
