What type of computer do you prefer

I recently have been having problems with my laptop overheating and I talked to my sister; she said that laptops overheating is a common problem. So with all the recent problems I've decided when I get my next computer it'll be a desk: my new preference.

So what type of computer do you prefer.

PC over laptop. They work better. I do wish I have a laptop though, but it would be only for traveling, as I think that they are secondary in "skills" to desktop computers.

Re: What type of computer do you prefer

Well, I've only had PCs so far because I like to be able to build up my own computer and decide exactly what parts I want. And it's easy to upgrade a few parts if you want, can't do that with the laptop, there it's all or nothing. But laptops are so easy to take with you, can sit anywhere with it.. so yeah, I'm getting one eventually. I'll always have a stationary PC on the side though

Re: What type of computer do you prefer

I have both a PC and Mac, both in the form of a laptop and desctop, i like them bothe equally and enjoy them for different reasons. I do use my PC more often out of the fact it has more games. I find that my mac laptop is by far better then my pc laptop however.

Re: What type of computer do you prefer

Windows is not a computer.. Windows is an operating system. The question was about laptops or desktops

I prefer PC's just becuse of the games really, Macs look nicer and are better for certain design programs.

Re: What type of computer do you prefer

Some games don't work on consoles though... like StarCraft, or Diablo. They'd need serious change in controls to even almost work on a console with a gamepad. I play those games on a PC, but all the rest on a console, basically

But the question was what kind of *computer* you prefer. IE, PC/Mac, laptop/desktop.. not console/PC.

Re: What type of computer do you prefer

I prefer Desktopes because . You are not stuck with the same keyboard, speakers and monitor that the computer came with since they are easy to replace with desktops.

Plus, desktops are cheaper and offer better performance and they are more easy to upgrade. I don't really see a need for myself to leave the house with a laptop since I rarely need to check e-mail when i am out.
