Question of the Day Jan 31st

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
My question pertains to the type of computer you have:

Do you have a laptop or a PC ?

I use my laptop all the time, I do have a PC but I put it away into storage about a week after I got my laptop.

We have both. I use the desktop in the mornings so I don't have to drag out my laptop. And when I get home from work, I use my laptop because my fiance is usually on the computer playing his game. Plus, I like laying in bed with my computer and watching TV.

I have a PC. I've hinted for a Laptop but no one in my family has responded to it. .

I use a desktop. It's only 3 months old, so the newness is still nice. I have a laptop, but it's 6 years old and the HD has died. I may replace it someday, but right now it's more money than I care to spend.

I have a PC. I've never used a laptop.

We have two desk tops.

A laptop is a personal computer, so the question is a bit odd.

I have several desktops. I've never really felt it necessary to get a laptop, I don't travel much and when I am away from home I really don't need to take up that time, too, it's for other things.

Aside from that, I prefer to have something I can easily upgrade and fix myself.

I have a MacBook, we all have Mac laptops, there is no room in our 800 sq. ft. house for big computers.

The secret is to use vertical space! You'd be surprise how much stuff can be fit into a single room.

I have a desk top. I did have a laptop which I bought from Dell in 2002. But it only lived about 3.5 years before the motherboard failed. I don't like the keyboard on a laptop so I attached a standard keyboard when I was using it.

I find the resolution vs screen size not very good for my eyes with a laptop. I like the look of high resolution, but on a small laptop screen I had to practically have my nose to the screen to see anything, which isn't so good when you are doing art. So I had to go with a less than optimal resolution to make things bigger which had an impact on my 3D graphics and web design which is what I bought the laptop for.

I'm happy with my desk top. I doubt very much I'll get another laptop. They're too heavy and bulky to lug around anyway.

PC = stupid term popularized by IBM that stuck.

I have a full tower desktop (and I'm in much less space than 800sqft living in a travel trailer) , gaming on a laptop, while possible, simply isn't the same....plus I have fat finger syndrome

I have both but I never use the pc.
My husband uses it.
I have a macbook and a sony vaio laptop.
The desktop is a sony also.
I like laptops so much better.

I use the LT more often, but sometimes use the PC too, my mom and dad use it more than me now!

I have a Mac desktop (three to four years old) and a PC laptop that's about ten years old now... the HD failed once, and was replaced by Gateway at no charge (this was years ago), and I think the motherboard may be starting to die out...

I also have a PC desktop that's dismantled, younger than the laptop, but hte motherboard was going downhill rapidly, so I saved what I needed, transferring over to the Mac, and dismantled it. I Freecycled the monitor (took up too much space), and the tower is sitting in a tucked away spot waiting for further dismantling... the piece of junk isn't worth the cost of a motherboard and new power supply.

I eventually want a Macbook Air (the really thin one)... but want the solid state HD, so it'll take a LONG time for me to get one (either that or the lottery).

I have a desktop. I had a laptop when I was 18 and I hated it, but they have changed a lot since then. My husband has a desktop and a laptop. He uses the laptop mostly for his work, and the desktop, with two monitors, sits at home.

I've got a laptop - it's the first computer I've bought with my own money. I got it July 2008 and so far it has lasted me well. I love browsing TCS in bed!

I've also got a desktop downstairs but that's far too old!

i have a laptop - macbook. it's a year old now - wonderful, imo. love being able to face the tv, sit in the recliner while i surf.
here's what i have: white macbook. i also got a purple 'soft touch' cover for it - this one. plus a wireless USB mouse so i don't have to use the touchpad [plus, the cats have a tendency to walk/lie on the touchpad ].
i love it!
i also own 2 mac desktops, which are kind of old - the newest one of them is an imac, about 8 years old. the other is a power pc mac desktop. both are currently at school, for the kids to use [no internet, but there are games on them].

We don't have a lot of stuff, we are minimalists! Our house is uncluttered, with the big exception of our 10 year-old's room which I try not to go into much.

I have a PC, which I'm more than grateful to have. A good friend of ours bought it for me for a combination birthday/Christmas gift when the old one bit the dust. It sure as heck beats my ancient WebTV any ole day! But even that was better than nothing at all.

I have a desktop. While I would kinda like a laptop to take to school, I really don't like using a laptop very much- I absolutely hate the finger mouse thingy
