Do you use a notebook or desktop

I could not spend as much time here if I used a desktop all the time, is there a big usage of laptops or are you anchored infront of a desktop?

Taking root in front of my desktop Chris.

75% on laptop, 25% on desktop here, gives me some exercise when I change :-)

Well lap something or other.......

I only access this site from home (100% desktop). At work, it is about 50/50 lap/desktop.

100% desktop.

Laptop would be far too flimsy for my hands.

Brian, one of the strange things I have found is I can type a lot faster now on a LT than a standard keyboard

I'm thinking more about the whole machine and my general clumsiness, especially as I get older and more arthritic. I also have fat fingers which would make the smaller keyboard more prone to me making mistakes.

My elder son uses one. I might give it a go, just to try it out. Tell you tomorrow.

Desktop here.

It is much easier to pick up a laptop and throw it across the room when it crashes on you.

If i try and do this with the desktop i could cause an injury (I'm in a hurry) Also where to throw it would also have to be a thought, however this is too much of a thought process (when i'm angry). So if it takes the windows out, then so be it (actually smashed a window not with computer though).
