I never had a scissor switch keyboard. I never actually had the money. Hell, I've only had one laptop and it was a piece of crap. Note the past tense there. I'm really not up-to-date in any sense of the word... I can't even play slender the eight pages on this pc without It lagging to the point that its unplayable... but I'm starting to get off topic.

My laptop keyboard is a mechanical keyboard and I really like it. I don't mind keys, but I find them more a nuisance than a mechanical keyboard now that I'm used to my laptop.

I'm not a fan of noisy keyboards, and I still wonder how silent these "silent" mechanical keyboards are.

And I'm using a laptop, so it'll be a long time before I ever get to own one.

I honestly don't mind noisy keyboards, but I does get annoying...
But I HATE those cheap keyboards, the keys feel sticky and its a real pain to type under those circumstances.

I'm actually kind of glad how I have a laptop instead of a desktop, to be honest. The keyboard feels really nice, compared to every non-mechanical desktop keyboard I've used before.

We do have a desktop in our house, but you'd never see us using it though; it's old and extremely slow. It was bought back in 2002, if I remember correctly. We would've gotten ourselves a new one, but none of us like desktops.

I'm all about desktops, believe it or not.. it's been a while since I've last used my laptop, now especially considering that I have my tablet now for portability.

I prefer a "fast enough" laptop since, well, it's significantly portable.

Since my laptop also tips the scales at just under 2 kg, I can also carry it around one-handed even though it's probably not a good idea to do that.

My laptop is glossy and heavy to carry. I noticed yesterday in one of my classes at how everyone that had laptops out, theirs were so quiet and not making noise at all. Mine surely wouldn't be like that at this day & age haha, but it's also older than the laptops I saw out.

My laptop dates back to 2009.

Sounds like a good Ultrabook is all you need! Who knows, maybe the money that would be spent towards a 16 GB iPad Air makes it already a good way to a great Windows Ultrabook.

Thinking of trading in the old laptop and/or any old gadgets you won't miss, too?

I have a desktop, which is what I'm using right now. I do kinda miss the portability of a laptop, where I can go anywhere in the house or at school and get online whenever I want. I hate having to use the computer where I can't move lmao.

If only a gaming laptop that looks like a normal laptop and isn't an Ultrabook exists. :3

nope, premium multimedia laptops don't count

I have a desktop and an iPad. Between the two, I've never had any use for a laptop, though I do have an old netbook somewhere. :P

I can't even have a desktop because I'd have too little desk space. Sometimes, you just gotta stay compact. I blame my multifunction printer.

Fortunately for me, I have a lot of desk space, so it would be a waste for me to have a big desk without a desktop :3

And because of the fact that I don't really use my laptop anymore, a large portion of my desk usually appears empty

I just like how everything is in a single piece for laptops. It's... neat.

The fact that they can run unplugged for hours is nice, too.

So I just had to reboot my tablet.. it suddenly disconnected itself from WiFi and every time I tried to reconnect, it wasn't connecting, but just saying that the network was saved. A reboot solved the problem, but now I hope it doesn't happen more often.

A reboot is actually the fastest way to solve transient hardware problems that are related to some internal program getting stuck on an internal device.

Failing that, turning off the device and leaving it off for a while should make everything fresh on the next boot.

I sometimes just reboot even if nothing seems to be wrong because I like my devices "fresh".

I do have a tablet, but I haven't used it much since I got my desktop and it's collecting dust since I got my iPhone. xD

Mine is under the desk, and the screen is on a wall mount. Zero desk space used. :D

Alongside desktop, I also have a tablet, a laptop, and a pair of phones. I use my tablet for reading and watching movies/TV shows; phones for calling, texting, IMing, and sometimes browsing; and laptop for just about everything else. d:

Ever since I've gotten my tablet keyboard, I've pretty much had no use in using my laptop. The small screen doesn't really bother me at all, and it's actually boosted the speed at which I'm able to type.
