    if you plan on running any marketing software or making videos, you can get a lot more bang for your money with a desktop

    but if you want to be on the move, obviously you need a laptop

    also, if you get a laptop, get a bigger monitor to run dual screens when youre at home

    I have both and sometimes its nice to move around the house or lie on the floor or the couch while I'm working, but I feel like I accomplish more when I'm sitting in front of my desktop

    I personally prefer my laptop. I can do this on the move, on my bed or wherever I want. Plus if you got enough money you can get a very good laptop. Depends on how much you wanna spend. If you have the money I'd go with a good laptop, if not desktop will give you more bang for your buck.

    Laptop if you don't have space. Desktop if you have the room.

    Desktop gives Multiple times the power for the money. ALSO cheaper to add to.

    A system with tons of open slots, ports, bays, external and internal. Mmmmmm

    I use a laptop for my schoolwork/normal web design and other work. Dual monitors connected to it for when I'm sitting at my desk. Run all my programs on a VPS.

    Depends entirely. I have a decent PC with HD graphics card connected to my 32 inch TV. I use that at home, for browsing, multimedia, just about everything.

    I use my laptop for when I'm away from home, and running software overnight. (With USB cooler fan).

    Desktop if you want to do website design etc! I recently changed from my desktop's 21" screen to a 14" laptop and my dreamweaver's screen almost literally shrank in half! It makes you have to minimize a lot of stuff so you can view the same picture.

    Laptop if you are on the move alot or require it for work. Desktop if not. Allthough i would say since i got rid of my Desktop and bought a good laptop i prefer it aloooot more, when im at home i just hook it upto my monitor and its just like working on a desktop.

    desktop without a doubt, well for me anyway. If you need to travel & work then obviously go for a laptop.

    Depends really, if you are a busy man and will travel a lot, then laptop, if not, desktop.
