Do you prefer a tablet, laptop, or desktop?
Which works best for you and why?
I love my Kindle for on the go. But the laptop has a USB and that is very important for my two flash drives that I have nightmares about getting soaked in water. Everything important is on there because computers have failed me a few times. If a Kindle had a USB port, it would be perfect. Desktop is my least favorite but it's handy to have only to keep valuable information. Always have a desktop and Kindle.
It really depends on one's lifestyle. I'd honestly prefer both a desktop and a laptop. It's not really for any particular reason, but I'd like to sit at my desk with a few extra monitors hooked up so I can multitask. On the other hand, however, I'd like a laptop for the portability. The only reason I wouldn't want a tablet is because they emphasize convenience over processing power.
I guess it does depend on your lifestyle. I also like laptops but you brought up a good point about having extra monitors. If you really want to, hooking up a couple extra monitors to a laptop is possible but can be a hassle.
it is, but Laptops are just that balance between functionality and portability, that "happy middle" between a tablet and a desktop. I'd love to get me another one after my old laptop broke.
I personally prefer a laptop and this is what I am using now. It is movable and I can take it anywhere I like. I wouldn't mind a little tablet for portability as well. But I just love my laptop.
For me it is a combination. I prefer my desktop MAC for writing or playing games. I use one of my iPads for watching movies, audiobooks, entertaining my grandchildren etc. I have the regular iPad and I got a mini iPad for Christmas which works out perfectly having two grandchildren!
Laptop is what I've known for the last 7 years. I do use a desktop at work but moving that mouse around is just plain frustrating sometimes. Having seen some tablets that people have, I might could do it but I like being able to have a keyboard readily available for writing emails, articles, and commenting online.
I use my desktop the most - I write up my hubs on it, play games, watch videos and everything else. I have an old netbook I like to use when I'm away from home - that way I can get some work done while I'm waiting around. My iPod mostly gets used for browsing social media and music.
Normally I have to work with great speed and for this I really need heavy machine, so I like laptop and desktop.
For me, the tablet is perfect for a movie night, the laptop is my best friend when I create my hubs and the desktop is for intense work. I think that they all are OK, but the laptop is more flexible
I have both a desktop and laptop that I do most everything on. I love them both for different reasons. I got a tablet a few months ago and still getting use to using it. It is very portable and allows for doing things almost anywhere.
Laptop. They do everything. I like to play computer games.

I am excited about all the latest technology that has become apparent in the 21st century. This is especially true about tablets! From the introduction of the Ipad in 2010 the evolution of tablets has become more and more like laptops that I begin to wonder who really needs one. Tablets are...
