    For some reason, I can't get anything done while on a laptop. I just procrastinate and buy stuff.
    Are you guys able to work on a laptop? I guess I'm a desktop kind of guy. Much easier for me.

    All I use is a laptop. I guess it all depends on where you can focus the best and what is comfortable for you :)

    I do 98% of all my work on a laptop using a cell phone as a wifi hotspot inside of a car. Several hours a day..

    I get it all done on a laptop! :) I only use my laptop nowadays, I like how I can bring it into any room of the house to do my work.

    I use both during the day, but I feel that I'm desktop guy as well.. When on the desktop I feel more productive.. for some reason when I'm using a laptop I get easily distracted..

    That really sucks, bad. :( You might want to invest in a disk station. At our house we have a 4TB synology disk station , and I recommend them.

    It depends on the type of work you do. If you do heavy editing stuff then PC with monitor but if you doing simple stuffs where you just need to see and type some data then Laptop all the way!

    I have a separate keyboard and mouse for my laptop setup on a desk so it basically acts for me as any desktop

    I use desktop primarily for work and iPad for just browsing/skype.

    I too don't like the laptop for some reason.

    I don't find any difference in using desktop or laptop. But I now have been using laptop for like a year or so.

    For some reason I'm much more comfortable sitting at a desktop. Maybe because the screen is bigger, but I simply feel more creative an ready to work. On a laptop, I feel restricted - but I also don't have a good laptop.

    For me, I work half the time on a Macbook Air, the other half on a custom built PC..

    Both have two 23 screens.... That is all that matters to me..

    I can't work with just one screen anymore.
