Laptop or Desktop? - January 17th 2011, 10:56 PM

How do you access TH?

Since I'm at college most of the time, I'm on my laptop. When I go home I'm usually on my desktop. My desktop was the computer I used for three straight years. It took me awhile to get accustomed to using a laptop all the time.

My favorite thing about my laptop, though, it's not shared with anyone. So I don't have to worry about 'hiding' anything. (Not that I don't anything bad...but what I do on my computer, that I paid for, is nobody's business :P)

I passed on my desktop and got a laptop instead for university, so I just use that all the time. Like you I took a little while to get used to it, but now I actually find using desktops weird.

Laptop, I adapted to it really easily despite using a desktop most of my life. Now it feels weird to use a mouse on the desktop.

You can use a mouse with a laptop. I use a USB mouse with mine because I hate pads, mainly because they're totally useless for playing any game faster-paced than Snakes and Ladders.

I have both...I got my desktop about 3-4 years ago. I got my laptop a few months ago.

I use my desktop mainly while I'm at school, while I use my laptop if I'm more "portable," if that makes sense. During class and such.

I got myself both. Desktops are a lot cheaper. The same spec that you'll get on a laptop costing £1000 or so you'll get out of a desktop for even half that amount.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

laptop. netbook. & iTouch

My desktop broke down a couple of years ago & ever since I've had a laptop. I prefer laptops anyways. It's easier for me to be comfortable. While I had my desktop I was always sitting in my computer chair in front of a desk; with my laptop, netbook, or iTouch I can sit wherever I want be comfortable (:
