What do you guys think is best to have?

I mean i work for a small I.T Shop and we repair 85% laptops and 15% pc's now so do you think PC's will be a thing of the past in a few years?

See, you can't ask a question like that Tongue

I much prefer desktops as they're easier to upgrade, cheaper, easier to repair and they're a lot cooler... But I use a laptop because when I go to job interviews it looks better if I present my portfolio on a laptop.

Laptops are better for transporting things on a screen - like a much better flash drive (XD) but I prefer dfesktops because generally they are better at everything

I would use a laptop a lot more in the summer, where I'd prefer to be outside. Or so I can sit downstairs and watch a movie. But I'd probably be connecting to my desktop for files, and its general "PWNAGE" over my laptop.

the reason why i am asking is because am thinking about getting rid of all my desktops and using laptops only from now on.

Have laptops but have a desktop as the file server?

Laptops have a purpose, but try to overclock a laptop sometime, or run a laptop with 4 monitors.
