I thought I would never give up my desktop computer. Lesson learned: Never say never. Now, I couldn’t imagine giving up my laptop.

On which device do you prefer to work?

Laptop - can carry it around anywhere and it's got all my apps installed prior to buying it.
Laptop. I like playing games on a tablet, but it is just not practical for working.

I am not a fan of Laptops.....
Laptop, by far. I like being comfortable when I'm working and a laptop allows for that.
laptop. Tablets don't seem to be able to do a lot of things, and I like the keyboard...
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 don't like tablets - they hurt my eyes for some reason. Laptop is preferable for convenience.

Laptop for convenience.
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.

They slow me down and I hate them!

No! I much prefer the trackpad. Now I can't stand using a mouse LOL. You've been busy?
by Vee
yes, seem to only get round to answering all the questions on a weekend -work 4 days and just got home! Had the morning off and all day tomorrow, sunday !! all for no money.

So volunteer work? What are you doing Finy?
by Vee
Laptop. it portable and can sit in any position with it. i also like having a physical keyboard to type on.
Any of the above, have no preference.
Computer. It is more comfortable to use.
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.
I love using my Laptop, wouldn't be without it!
Only have ever had this ITablet personally.

Worked on big computer at work. Never want to see one again.
I prefer to work on a computer.
I prefer my tablet as I don't have to move from my recliner. I use the desktop when I'm doing a lot of research and the laptop rarely as it slows me up.
