    So I want this new laptop for mobility away from the desktop and sitting on my arse. But then I want my axe back to shred!
    What would you choose?

    Definitely the guitar. I have 20+ year old martins and strats that get more valuable every day. What's a 20 year old laptop worth? Worst case, get your guitar back and save for a few weeks to get a cheap netbook. It's not like you're going to be running scrapebox or xrummer via wifi anyway right?

    Considering this is a marketing / money making forum and money is a priority and with enough of it u could buy several guitars and the key to this is internet mobility I'd probably go for can openers and comic books.

    I say go for the guitar. You need to reward yourself every now and again. I have both a laptop and desktop and I find myself getting a lot more "actual" work down when sitting down at my desktop. Get the axe work at the desktop for a while then you can take a break and shred. Like said before a good quailty guitar holds it value if not going up in value. As your laptop will become outdated.

    I'd get the laptop and then when you can afford it, get the guitar. I am so glad I bought my laptop when I did. Now I'm never at the desk anymore.

    The guitar isn't much of an investment...but if a laptop can get you working wherever you want, that'll make you a lot happier and will likely improve your health rather than being stuck at your desk all day long.

    My next purchase is a Macbook Air.

    Well mate, i would suggest you to get a Laptop cause you can do more things with it than just playing a song with your guitar.

    Definitely guitar. It'll give you your soul back. Computers, though great for making money, take it away.

    The guitar for sure man!
    I just bought four back from Japan haha.
    Get a Galaxy Nexus (the Google phone) for working on the go and you're set.
    Use PocketCloud if you want to run tasks on your PC remotely from your phone.

    I think you should get BOTH! Make the sacrifice somewhere else and not between those two items. If you truly like playing guitar, then don't stop yourself from that. Make life more interesting for yourself and head to a coffee shop with free wifi....bust out your laptop AND your guitar and start playing music. Stream it live on a site and monetize it. Even better, create Youtube videos of you playing guitar on the go in random locations....get subscribers and make money from them. Think outside of the box a little on ways to make money with this and do something unique!

    If I had to choose....well, it would be the guitar. At least you can use your desktop for IM for now and later get the laptop when you can't stand looking at your dust-covered stratocaster (that's only if the nostalgia of playing it wears off a little)!!
