Everyone using just laptops, anyone still using desktop and why?
Why? Big 27inch monitor or two split monitors, you see everything
90% desktop, 10% notebook
I use laptop for efficiency and writing and desktop for crypto and game stuff
I use a desktop - why; I can have a big screen, keyboard and mouse, fixed setup, and space for lots of hard drives. Also got a windows laptop, and a MacBook Air. For portability.
It seems, you’re from girls high school
More real estate that's why!! Two screens and lots of room for improvement.
Desktop for sure, way too many automation tools to run on a laptop alone - plus 3 monitors helps with productivity lol. Laptop is fine for light work, but can't replace a desktop as of now.
I use a desktop - works great for an anchor.
Oh you missed this precious thread
90% desktop, 10% laptop
All windows xD
Yo yo !!
I have one. I don't use the desktop often. Only use it when resource intensive tasks are required (like video rendering). It's a beast.
As for "why", because it can have more resources for lesser price. Laptops (generally) aren't that good for heat dissipation either. So, they often throttle when put to the limit.
Desktop with mechanical keyboard. Nothing beats that!
Me too. Big screen and good typing feeling. Nothing more than a desktop computer
Use a Desktop too, for Gaming, Editing and Designing loves the big screen
I have a new problem now though: water is scarce in my region and electricity bill has shot up 300%. Bought one of those power meters and desktop really drains some juice. Notebook uses 20x less energy.
I'll eventually move my work to notebook and become digital nomad. Some day.
When electricity overtakes gas for car fuel, we'll all pay 5X more for electricity. Write this down - you'll remember I said this one day! Everything that becomes fuel becomes expensive. When they began using methanol for fuel, sugarcane and corn prices shot up 10x. So electricity is likely next.
Began moving windows -> linux in late 90's
I realize most IM'ers are microsofties. I only use windows on VPS + tools only available in windows.
That's battlestation porn right there. Sure you've seen this place? https://www.reddit.com/r/battlestations/
Could probably post yours there.
I'm mechanical kb fanatic but I'm starting to reconsider. My typing late at night is waking people up.
Personally though nothing beats a mech keyboard. Besides they last forever. Non mech kb's last 6 months max for me. The one in front of me has been here for 4 years and is still new.
no desktop,100% laptop
I work and travel so impossible to have a desk top. Having said that, there is something I love about sitting down in front of a big screen, with a big powerful processor on the floor. If I'm going to have a porn wank, its much better on a desk top. As the keyboards are easier to replace when you get man juice between the keys.
