    IMO only buy a laptop if you plan to take it places and you need it to be transported easily. Otherwise if its just for home use, a desktop is a lot cheaper and can be easily upgraded.

    I had two laptops for about 7 years. It depends on what you use them for and if you want to use them when traveling. I believe wifi is helping laptops become more popular.

    Nice, hope it's good. :)

    Heh! I guess it's because you can use it like anywhere.

    What do you mean, there's always a trade off? :confused:

    When was the last time you used one out of curiosity? (1763 A.D? :p)

    Hopefully you can get one you want one day!

    Nice, how much did you pay for it though? Hope it's worth it.


    Not really a suprise that you use desktop more then is it! :p

    Congratoulations, hope you enjoy it.

    It takes up way too much memory and takes ages to load some things. Win XP Pro beats it hands down.

    Laptops are almost as affordable as desktops now. I have one and I am thinking of getting a new one in the next 6 months. It's great having the convenience of being able to take your computer with you wherever you go. I think in 10 years we will see mobile smart phones and laptops merging together...some of the PDAs/phones are already pretty amazing for browsing and text messaging.

    Yeah I spose, I will probably 'get' a copy of XP when I get it to dual boot.

    Nice to hear they worked so well for you!

    Also good to hear it's worked well for you too!

    I guess you didn't need it for mobility and were using as a desktop almost?

    Which laptop?

    Yeah, will be amazing what we will see in the future - desktops no more! (Well, atleast once chips are so tiny they can fit anything in a lappy/phone!)

    Yeah sure, i'd love a powerful 17" Mac, but I can't afford to pay twice the price when I could get a equivalant/better Vista notebook. I'm also buying the laptop for gaming (not soley), and unless I boot camp I can't really play many games!

    Mac is something i'll consider in the future, but for now it's a no.

    I've got an old iffy Portege ($owch) and a new budget Presario. Away from home work horses - tools not trophies, blablabla.
