How do YOU compute?

I've only had my laptop for about 2 to 2.5 years, and already the battery is shot, it has a line down the screen, and it regularly overheats.

So, as much as I hate it, I'm looking into buying a new computer so that when this one dies I'll know what I want to replace it with.

But, I can't get passed the Laptop vs. Desk top debate in my head.

Price really isn't the issue, cause I feel like we'd spend about the same amount on whatever computer I get. But, what if you compare the cost to the amount of time it will last you? Desk tops last a lot longer than laptops.

But, what if it's the portability that I want?! There are very few things I love more than curling up in bed with my laptop to chat and catch up on blogs.

What's a girl to do?

What do you use? What would you suggest? I've done another poll. Please let me know what you think the best course of action is! :)

that's what I have, and I love it. We have a desk top and never use it.

Let me ask the great Smartini...
but as much as you like to travel, my bet is he'd say laptop too.

Have to agree with the Mac Laptop!

If it's financially possible at all, Mr. M recommends a desktop for your primary home use, and yes, the mac is an okay laptop for your wandering habits. He says your laptop will last noticably longer if it's not your primary outlet.
Laptops are fragile. Period. There are a bunch of technical reasons why, mostly related to weight and power usage. They are meant to be mobile, not durable.
Good luck!
