    If you need mobility buy laptop, but if you need computer in one place buy desktop.

    Personally i prefer a laptop, however i run some pretty powerful and resource intensive software, so i tend to use the laptop just for the lighter stuff, like going out to clients, browsing the net, etc etc

    I then save the desktop for my actual work. I guess it depends which you prefer, and what you intend on using the machine for.

    I suggest you to go for an HP or HCL/Toshiba laptop,since if you compare the price of both it will have very less difference as laptop is very small in size and also require very small space it wil easy for you to carry it around.Now a days laptop comes with sattellite reception technlogy wireless internet will not be a problem.

    Laptop if it is for working, the only real reason why I would buy a desktop is for its gaming capabilities

    If you go to cafe's, of course a laptop, however you can buy a nice high-end desktop and then buy around a $400 dollar netbook.

    Netbooks are great to surf the internet and check your e-mail, and they are extremely light-weight and small!

    A notebook can significantly reduce your electricity bill, compared to a desktop.

    desktops just last longer and are more reliable in my opinion but of course laptops are more fun, it all depends what they are used for

    This may sound lame but I like Dell laptops. The keyboards are solid and the battery life is very good for what I need. Now I don't do any graphics work on my laptop but for anything else it rocks.

    I prefer a desktop for more storage and heavy duty use. I wore out my last laptop after 5 years and wished I'd had a desktop the whole time.
