    I prefer a laptop because of its portability. My desktop is newer and that may be why I don't use it as much right now, though.

    I think you use what is more familiar.

    Laptop of course.  I have given up on using desktop five years back because I am constantly on the move.  Unless you are a serious gamer, you do not need a desktop IMHO

      Thank you Chinaimport, for answering and sharing your opinion.
      Laptop is so much convenient for people constantly on the move. You can carry your work anywhere and remain connected as well.
      Thanks!

    Desktop. it's more comfortable for writing, plus I have the option of a bigger screen and better visuals.

      Desktop definitely is more suitable, if you talk of correct body postures. Thanks for sharing your opinion!

    I prefer the lappy because I can sit on my soft couch and use it. Also it's portable. I also prefer it over a tablet. I like real buttons, not a touch screen.

      I agree touch screens are not always comfortable.

    I prefer laptops because you can take it with you when you travel. did exactly that a month ago while traveling between four countries.

    Well i would prefer a Desktop for gaming and for drawing  however if it is for typing ,coding or for study ,laptops are best ,since they are portable and you can take them somewhere "quite" and you can concentrate on your work there.

    I prefer a laptop because of its portability.

    Oddly enough, I have not worked exclusively or even frequently on a desktop in probably close to a decade!

    At home a Desktop  computer. Away from home a laptop for its conveniences. I don't have one though.

    Have a great day, my Friend.

    Inside home i prefer desktop and while travelling I use laptop.  With laptop, I find typing a little bit tiring job moreover the system gets heat when the usage lasts longer.

      Sorry for responding late, since somehow I missed the notification. I also use Laptop, when on the move and that's the advantage of Laptops. Thanks!

    Good Day All;  It all depends on how I feel and want to do at the time. Currently I'm home setting at my desk and using the desktop, with my feet up. Plus also using 2(23") monitors in split screen mode. Currently I have my Hub page and Facebook pages open on one and the other Twitter and Warrior Forum open on the other. 

    My laptop is on the desk doing a recharge so I will go to Starbucks and use it there or while watching TV and checking E-Mail, later.

    Mike
