I prefer the desktop because it is more ergonomic. The laptop gets a fair bit of use as it is easy to move around, but I notice more aches and pains if I've been on the laptop for too long. I have a laptop rest from Ikea and that helps a bit, but long stints still result in a trip to the chiropractor.
I agree the desk top is the best for your health across a lot of areas.
The concept of putting a device close to my body also concerns me.
The sudden rise in testicular cancer among young men leaves me wondering about lap tops.
Me too. I retired and used the lap top for many months - then, the aches and pains started. Don't know if I sit badly, or have one knee higher than the other for support or what it is but since using lap top I certainly experience multi multi aches and pains. Definitely feel this wouldn't have happened if I had stuck to the desktop PC
I do not have a laptop but have an i pad -I love my i pad for games and facebook etc but I FAR prefer my pc as it is much easier to use when searching for something . With the i pad you cannot have multiple windows open and keep having to go back.
Ok you question was about laptops and I was digressing (having at last some time to answer questions!) -I do not like laptops as I have problems with the pad on them instead of a mouse.
I have an Apple Mc Air 13” My husband has a computer, also Apple. When I buy my lovely little ‘gold’ coloured 1, I’ll give my Mac Air to my husband. It’s only 1-1/-2 years old, but the ‘gold’ 1 is going to be a lot lighter for me to carry around, e.g for when we fly to Melbourne 5 times a year.
