Desktop when I'm working on multiple things at once. For example; tickets, email, editing, publishing new website stuff, etc.

Laptop the other half of the time, as I like to move around during the day while working. These days my laptop is equally powerful as a high end desktop so there's really no compromise except battery life. Rockin' the Asus G55VW-DS71 w/SSD addon. Definitely recommend it to anyone who works via laptop!

I like my desktop. 240GB SSD, 16GB Ram, nice big 24 inch IPS screen. I can get alot of work done.

When I travel I use the desktop. During the day out and about, iPhone.

I am wondering if I could replace my laptop with a Lenovo Win 8 Tablet, just out. Hmmmmm?

I prefer laptop, the last time I've used Desktop was like 4 years ago. My laptop has 4GB RAM, i5 CPU and 500GB disk space. That's enough for me to do my work.

PC is better than laptop, because of the monitor size. It's more convenient, when you have a bigger screen.

On the other hand, handheld devices have their advantages - mobility, above all.

So, the ideal combination would be PC + android tablet/phone...

That's what I do sometimes too. Working in front the same corner of your house is very boring and sometimes uninspiring. So I copy my work to the laptop too and transfer to wherever I am comfortable or is kicking to go.

To be honest, I have retired my laptop and replaced it with an Android Tablet (ASUS Transformer TF101) for most tasks, including posting on WHT. It does a great job, very portable, fast and insane batter life (16 Hours). For heavy tasks I still pull out my laptop/desktop.
