if only i was sure that my head on the door was a dream  
here's the thing. my comp is old and therefore wonky. the fans are making this insufferable rattling noise. my monitor won't display anything but an error message saying something or other about input so i think my video card fried. gah. i need a comp for work and that would be nice if i could use a laptop to do all my paperwork and reports etc.

my dilemma is this. laptop V desktop. pc V mac. personally, i want a macbook or something like that. if i'm gonna invest in something i might as well go whole hog, ya know? however, practicality suggests i just get another reasonably priced desktop with which everyone in this house is familiar with or be totally selfish and just get a mac/airbook (photoshop!graphic!awesomeness!) for me seeing as how i'm the only one that actually uses this thing for work and other things. but then i think three five years down the road and i have to get another laptop cos they don't last that long so really my dilemma is want V need... except not really. bah.

My vote goes for a laptop! PC or Mac - no idea. I never had a MAC! But I wouldn't get an airbook, totally overpriced and if you don't need to carry it around the whole time then I would go for normal MacBook Pro. :P

My practicality and budget won over in the end. I may eventually get a laptop but probably not a Mac cos yeah, expensive and I'm not very good with the graphics anyway. Just wishing.

I'd go for the PC, but that's just me. Maybe do some research and see if one of them will be more suited to your needs (for work/non-work)?

I went for compatability and work purposes. *shrug*

Everything's fine until it goes wonky then it gets way out of hand.

Windows 7 is... different. Thing is, I have to learn it before everyone else otherwise it's gonna get screwed up really quickly.

laptop. if you are planning on doing heavy graphics i'd go with a mac, otherwise get the pc. make sure it has some sore of way of connecting dvds/cds if you use them (and also as a way to back up, unless you want a portable hard drive).

Yeah that's the thing. I'm not good with graphics. So I went PC.

My vote: laptop. PC. Which...doesn't help, as you're leaning the other way, lol! But I vote to be selfish. Why should you shell out for a desktop for everyone? Buy what you want for yourself! *iz devil perched on shoulder*

One day I will have a laptop... But my blackberry is kind of filling that need at the moment. Plus, the work is supposed to provide a lappy for work... Three year old promise. *shrug* not expecting much.
