Laptop vs. Desktop

Which is better? Laptop or desktop?

I have gone from writing long-hand to writing on a desktop to writing on a laptop. Which do I prefer? You guessed it, a laptop.

Laptops are so much easier for many reasons. First, they are more compact. Because of the size, they move easier which means you can write almost anywhere you couldn't with a desktop. Second, they are lighter so carrying them is more simple which again means you can write almost anywhere.

I really like the idea that I can go anywhere with my computer. I can sit at the park and write if I so choose to. I can sit in my bed and relax while I write. I can have internet anywhere I have my computer. Those annoying wires aren't getting in my way! Don't you hate those darn things getting in your way?

When I was writing in long-hand, it meant I was wasting all that paper. Then I still had to type it up so I could send it to publishers. Having a computer whether its a laptop or a desktop saves time, energy, paper, and pens. It also saves the pain associated with writing things down for so long. I have arthritus in both wrists so typing really helps, less pain!

So which do you really prefer? Now days, laptops are getting more affordable which means more and more people are using them. Let me know, respond and lets see what the world prefers. Thank you! Have a great day!!

Gotta go with the desktop. I have a 20" monitor and it's waaaay easier on my poor eyes. I have a laptop for when I travel, but I get more done on the big screen. But that's just me...

Thank you for replying, Jamie. I can see how you feel that way. Desktop computers do have bigger screens and if they're not big enough, a person can easily upgrade to an even bigger screen. You can't do that as well with laptops. My eyes are good so I don't have that problem but I agree on that nature.

Anyone else what to contribute? What works best for you--laptop or desktop?

Laptop. The external monitor and keyboard are cheap enough and easy to hook up with a laptop. The same laptop can be used in the office, at home, and while traveling. It saves the trouble of transferring files from one computer to another. Also, the laptop is more energy efficient and better for the environment.

I used to prefer the desktop for the reasons Jamie stated. It also used to have a larger hard drive. Now the capacity of a laptop is beyond what I need. With a large external monitor and a keyboard, a laptop could offer everything a desktop could, besides the movability that a desktop doesn't have.
