It totally depends on what is it for. If possible ill go for the desktop since it is cheaper and easily upgradable. As for the laptop its the mobility that i like. i can bring it anywhere. but it is expensive and barely upgradable.

i agree. the upgrade feature seems to be the drawback for laptops.

I definitely prefer a desktop. But I really would love to have a laptop so I can easily bring something to LAN parties. :)

I prefer laptop over desktop because of the following reasons: 1) Ability to move with and work from anywhere 2) Now with my docking station, it gives me the ability to transform it into a desktop (so I can use dual monitors if need be)

it gets a lot of getting used to i believe. specially if a user is new in using the trackpad and the cramped keyboard.

Lap top is better compare to Desk Top. But a desk top has its own charm. The Lap top LCD screen somethimes is fizzy whatever the resolution is. So for mobile use Lap top is fine. For home use, Lap top.

i agree. the screen resolution of an lcd still lags compared to the regular monitor.

Though I would say I would prefer a laptop better for its portability, I can never completely put out desktops, I have been using a desktop for the longest time and then I wanted a laptop, now I am using my uncle's laptop since I am here in the US visiting, and I just never felt the difference between the two. But bottomline, I would still wanna get my laptop real soon. Maybe a macbook.

laptop looks more cool. there are desktops though that are "dressed" up as well. functionality wise, desktops tend to have more muscle compared to the laptop.

I prefer the laptop to the desktop. The laptop for it's convenience. It's easy to handle, takes up less space. It's mobile you can easily travel with it laptop. Desktops are basically stationary and are not that easy to move around as with a laptop. The laptop is one complete unit whereas the desktop need threee different compartments to make a complete unit.

Laptop - no doubt. I get far more use out of my laptop - justifying the additional cost. When my laptop becomes obsolete...it will be more then worn out, which would not happen with a desktop.

yes. how bout the probabilities of upgrade. desktop can be upgraded while laptop is more costlier for that purpose

bulky desktops cover our desk and thats too uncool. regarding laptop "dying", i guess you are referring to the battery life, the batteries that come with the laptops nowadays are better than before and will give you longer time for usage.
