View Full Version : PC or Laptop?

December 17th, 2004, 7:43 PM
If you have a PC, would you prefer to have a laptop? Or if you have a laptop would you want a PC? Or if you have both which do you prefer?

I like using laptops alot more then PC's, just because of the mobilty and the fact you can bring it anywhere insted of lugging around a PC XD.

But at home I like using PC's, I don't need to be moving too much in my house, and I don't have to worry about battery life, and installing new hardware components.

PC. Being mobile with a computer isn't extremely important to me.

But there are some times when having a laptop is useful.

I wish I had a laptop right now (I don't own one, but its in the house), even if it was a P2 300Mhz, I wouldn't care XD. PC's seem to be more reliable with data and if something goes wrong with hardware its alot easier to just open up the case and see what happened and maybe replace a defective part. But with laptop's its not as easy.

I like a PC better, personally. I don't like laptops that have the mouses that you have to use your finger. =p

I like using my laptop mainly because it is portable. I prefer desktops though, laptops can get annoying when you have them on your lap for a long time.

PC,beacause of the quality of the games(Graphics)

Aren't graphics the same on both?

Aren't graphics the same on both? ^ Depends what graphics card they have.

A PC definitely. But a laptop makes it possible to view/use your files even when you are travelling.:) But I don't have one..:(

I like using a PC. Its fast and you can do a lot with it.

Desktops are so much more powerful, I prefer them to laptops as I don't need to carry one anywhere.

BTW, most laptops are also "PCs".

lol J_A is right, but neither is better than the other unless u think about the specs and there are better laptops than desktops

I like laptops , they are better by all the meaning, but just if you have money enough. A PC desktop lets you be high end, what i mean by this it surely will process better graphics , have more HDD space and more feactures overal for less bucks. So its good for gamers and if you dont move around

In my house right now we have 4 laptops and 1 desktop since i have 3 bros and my dad so its good to have lots of them if you are constatly beggind your slibbings for it.
As far as i know i cant afford good laptops just budget ones like 3 compaqs and one thats kick butt a fujitsu siemens with a resolution of 1600 with an intel mobile .

But of IBM,SONY,COMPAQ certaindly Sonys are better just so they are expensive . But if you are a gamer and needs a great pc go with the Voodoo Envy's.

Both, but both are fairly expensive. Laptops are nice, but they are fairly limited with hardware. Desktops are nice also, but not portable. ^_^

I like desktops better. Laptops are good when you're going someplace and want technology around you. But I don't go traveling to places where I would want a computer alot.

I prefer using a computer because I never seem to have used a laptop much.

Technically speaking they are both PCs but I personally prefer the Centrino laptops.

My PC is better than both of my laptops.

I have a PC and a Laptop and I love my laptop more. The PC isn't my own, but the laptop is, that is probably why. Laptops are easier to take around, and I am always traveling, so that is a good thing.
