I have both laptops and Desktops.

I use the desktops stirctly for work, and DVD Burning

Otherise my Laptop is basically an appendage of my body I rarely go anywhere without it. For a personal computer I dont think I would buy anything other than a laptop. Its juse easy being mobile(Laptop Scenarios: GPS system in my car, Chatting in the living room, enjoying the weather on the deck)

3 self assembled PC boxes with the following wimpy processors...2.0ghz/2.4ghz/3.0ghz(1 for sale). A Dell laptop for work..which the idiots at GE decided was a smart move from an IBM Thinkpad. And an Apple Dual 1.0ghz MDD and a 1.2ghz Apple Cube. My Macs never crash and when I choose shutdown,,they do it immediately and don't spend 5 minutes thinking about it. For the apps that aren't available on the Mac..then I need a PC. Plus 2 for sale Apple boxes. Probably too many computers in the house!

My laptop is a '96 Samsung 100mhz. It was pretty bad ass in it's day... paid 4 stacks for it. Haven't powered it up in about 6 years. Today it probably doesn't have enough guts to even power up. lol!

Now I'm running a basic dell desktop purchased 11/04.

I have a desktop I built 3 years ago. 2.4 processor which was pretty bad ass for the time. Somehow everything (case, monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, modem, speakers, and chair and desk) all match perfect; Black and Chrome. I would like a laptop just for the portability but I'm too thrifty.

I have both. Laptop is mainly for my mp3 player and when friends need help with their computers(Rare!). I PREFER the desktop because I get to sit back in my big black leather chair with my nicely-spaced out keyboard(hate laptop keyboards) and surround sound. Desktop all the way.

AMD 64 3000
1 GB Memory
80 GB Hard drive
256 MB ATI video card

So far not real impressed with the AMD processor. Might go back to a Pentium.

I have a Apple Powerbook G4 12". It has 1.25GB of ram and a 80GB hard drive. I'm about to upgrade to a Apple Macbook 13.3"(White) with 2GB of ram and a 60GB hard drive(I'll upgrade the HD sooner or later).
