We are about to purchase a new computer and I could really use some advice. I'm trying to decide between a desktop and a laptop.
Arguing for the desktop: We have an iPad, two iPhones, a Kindle Fire, and M has a MacBook Pro through work. So we're pretty much set on mobile computer devices. It would be nice to have a stationary computer in our office with a large screen. Also, it just feels more grown-up to me. And it's about $500-1000 cheaper than the laptop, depending on the configuration we go with.
Arguing for the laptop: Do desktops seem kind of archaic? I already have a lovely, large screen iMac at work. And what if I want to blog whilst sitting on the couch or lounging in bed? I can't do that on a desktop and I can't do that on any of my other mobile devices. I technically could do it from M's laptop, but I don't like mixing personal shizz with business shizz.
I'm torn. What do you have? Do you like it? What do you recommend? Do you feel strongly one way or the other? Computers are $$$ so I really don't want to buy one and then a month later be like, "Whoopsie! Wrong decision!"
