      Which do you prefer? Desktop or Laptop?

      I myself prefer a laptop for many reasons really but the main reason is that it is wireless :) (that is if it doesn't need to be on the mains) I also like to be able to sit on the sofa or maybe lay in bed whilst browsing the internet :)

      Must admit a desktop is alot more powerful to be honest but with me only using my laptop for things such as forums and facebook games and some online gaming sites it does me just well :)

      I prefer laptop! Because I think it's very handy wherever you carry it. You can even browse the internet while you are lying on the bed. So I guess it's more preferable by users.

      Well there's the obvious portability of a laptop that makes it popular. I have a laptop but the only think I dislike is that it's costly to upgrade. With desktop you can just upgrade your server or screen but with laptop you have to buy a new one every time technology gets better.

      That is true clauemi which can be a problem. I got my laptop at Christmas and so far it's all been good but I know in the end at some point I will have to upgrade something in it.

      Well my last upgrade to my Desktop involved changing everything including the Case so you could say I bought a totally new PC.Main difference is I bought the parts and built it myself.

      I'll always prefer laptops. Soon the Desktop sellers will be out of business if they don't start selling laptops. Everyone loves them now because of the portability.

      That is true Gampro, so many purchase laptops because as you said of the portability, also alot of students purchase them so they can take them to college and such if needs be or be on the go when doing assignments and such.

      Laptop is the best for me as there is not a lot of room in my home plus I can take the laptop any where which is good

      I'm a big fan of the desktop personally. They're generally way cheaper too for the same amount of specs. Although, I do like to have a laptop with me on occasion due to business arrangements and other things of that sort. Laptops are handy, but if I needed to choose one or the other, it would be desktop all the way.

      It depends on where I'm at and what I plan to do. If I'm home, I'll prefer a desktop. If I'm traveling, I'll prefer to have a laptop obviously, lol. Of course, if I'm home and I wish to move around, I'd prefer a laptop and most likely get a wireless mouse for it, ;)

      I prefer laptop because it is wireless and it can be use anywhere. It does not need any wires. While a desktop has a lot wires but the gaming performance of desktop is great and the gaming performance of laptop is little bad.
