Hi Friends, Computers - This is the magic word nowadays. Almost all humans knows about computers, and most of us have one computer. Or, at least we go to computer cafe once in a week. But, my question is, in which one you prefer to work with, Laptop or Desktop? Which one is more comfortable to you Laptop or Desktop?

It depends on what sort of mood I am in! Sometimes it is nice to work on my laptop, if I want to work in my bed for example and other times it is nice not to feel the weight on anything on my lap whilst I am working and therefore thats when I would find using a desktop most comfortable.

Yes a laptop is definitely more practical but not always the most comfortable in my opinion.

Laptop is more convenient to use, but convenient as it is, in some parts of our country, it's risky to carry especially at night and when we have to take the bus to travel. We may never know when people want our laptop for themselves hahaha.

The Laptop is my choice. But It needs a USB mouse connected to it. I have never found a touchpad that I liked. My girlfriends older HP has a good one but a real mouse alternative it ain't.

I would always rather be on a desktop. I find my daughter's laptop too small and I hate not having a mouse to use. She has one of those pads which I just hate using. I find it very uncomfortable on the fingers. I like the way my system runs and the power it has. Though I guess it is nice o be able to take the laptop with you where you go, for the most part hers just stays in one spot like a desktop anyways. Though sometimes I wish my computer chair was a lazy boy and I could just lay back and do whatever online.

I love the portability of my laptop. I have never complained about only owning a laptop. Until recently, as my photography has taken off and I'm doing more editting and manipulating of pictures,I have been thinking of getting a desktop for comfort. Weird, I swore a few year back I would never own a desktop again, and now I am drooling over desktops.

It's much easier to use a laptop. Plus its very portable. Pretty much for browsing the internet or doing some office work. But when it comes to gaming, desktops would be kings. You can add some gaming peripherals like joysticks, surround sound systems, and desktops can handle better 3d graphics and large flat screens.

Practically speaking, a desktop is much more comfortable - the screen is adjustable in terms of size (you can change your screen to something bigger or better, whatever suits you. You can even but two monitors for one desktop PC to make things more comfortable) and also you can change its angle, I prefer the screen a little bit facing the right because I often title my seat towards the left :) Laptops also tend to overheat if you run too many applications on it - but since desktops have separate machine for the CPU, you won't be bothered by such heat and it has a better cooling system because it actually has space for that. Laptops are generally made for the people on the go - but most professionals have laptops to bring, and desktops at home for comfort. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Hello arunmails, I think laptop is more comfortable to have but I prefer to use desktop most of the time. I like the big screen and the keyboard and the mouse. We don't really need a mouse for laptop but for me, I feel a little bit lost without the mouse.

I think desktop is more comfortable than laptop. Laptop can have a difficult mouse and keyboard especially if you have a small notebook. Laptop on the other hand is good when it comes to being handy. But if I have a choice, I will still use my desktop since it wasn more convenient to use.

I have a desktop but I prefer to have a laptop when working or typing. It is more convenient to use. The only thing I love using desktop is it is easy to upgrade and repair unlike laptops that you can't just open it and upgrade. For convenient wise I'd go for a laptop.

I think anyone new to computer would find laptops more comfortable than desktops. Laptops are comfortable for me as I don't have to trouble myself into hauling the CPU, Monitor, other accessories and the table that the desktop uses. It is also comfortable as it doesn't consume too much in the electric bill as laptops only uses one plug while desktops would use more.. When you want performance, I think you won't go wrong with a well constructed desktop but, if you want convenience and comfort, you just have to find a good laptop (^_^ )

I personally like the keyboard and monitor of the desktop. The desktop is also much easier to repair with out taking it into the repair shop and is a generally lower cost option. If you are not on the go constantly, or don't need portability, I would suggest sticking to this sturdy workhorse called a desktop.

Desktop or laptop with external monitor, keyboard and mouse is comfortable choice but I don't see modern laptops uncomfortable either if they've large keyboard and big LCD panel. It just depends on the environment you use your PC, the room, the desk (put in at least on some kind of table or desk), the lights and the distance between you and keyboard and monitor.

At present i am using a desktop computer which i bought 3 years ago and have got used to it. I haven`t worked on a laptop still so i wouldn`t know whether that is better or the desktop. Unless i try one i cannot give an answer to your question.I was advised against buying a laptop because of the cost, maintainance and upkeep.Since i am homebound the desktop was advisable which i am using to this day.When i buy a laptop, which is not likely in the near future, i would be in a position to answer you question correctly.Good day.

Well, mine is a desktop and I am comfortable with it. Maybe others who have laptop would also say they are comfortable with their laptops than a desk top. The only thing with laptop is you can take it anywhere you want.. so you can continue on working wherever you go but with the desktop you can just work on it when you are home. But I like desktop more than the laptop Cause the monitor is bigger.
