Desktop or Laptop?
6 Jul 07
I really dont need a large desktop any more. I prefer the portability of laptops. Plus with technology advancing, they are becoming more powerful. And they are not that expensive. But say if you are using it for extreme gaming ... which by mean playing at least one game at a time, yes its possible, then use a desktop because you can upgrade the performance easily. As for hard drive space, yeah you will get about 200GB tops, but external hard drives are getting even more common now and cheap. If you were to get a laptop, get a Macbook or Macbook Pro. Definitely.

My fiance and I each have our own desktop and our own laptop. It seems silly for two people to have four computers, but each of the computers is good for specific purposes, so we can use the computer best suited to the task or tasks we want to complete. Normally, I use my laptop a lot more than my desktop, but the desktop is great for when I want to get online quickly (we don't shut this computer down very often).

Well, if i had neither, of course I'd prefer a desktop. As you said, it's easier to handle and be upgraded.. But since I already have a desktop at home that EVERYONE in the house needs to use at some point of time, then I guess I really need a laptop. After all there's wireless at home.. so, it's pretty easy for me. :)
