I am in the older crowd and rather have a desktop.
I do not want a computer with me 24 hours a day.
I can upgrade a desktop easier and get more years out of it.
I like a regular keyboard.
I can add additional USB ports, Iee5 ports and disk drives to a desktop.
There is less propriety soffware on a desktop than a lap top,thus if I ever have to rebuild from the ground up, it is going to be easier.
I also have a laptop, mainly as a backup, but when I use it at home, I hook up a full size monitor and keyboard and regular mouse to it.
