Simple discussion thread. Do you have a laptop or a desktop computer. What kind? Do you like it? You know! Lets just brag about our computers.

 

I have an Acer laptop, a gateway Netbook, and a very exensive (five years ago) Dell desktop model and I have to say I like my 200 dollar netbook better than anything else I own.

I have a macbook that I recently realised is kinda old and out of date now (only got 1gb of RAM, and the new shizzle needs 2gb minimum).

 

I'm thinking I may have to save like a mutha after Christmas and get me a spangly Macbook Pro. This one can get demoted to the surfing/shopping laptop for her indoors to use. :D

have both. An Ancient old Dell laptop which will be getting replaced either by a super duper laptop or a chep laptop and use the money for upgrades to other things. Use an old packard bell XP box to run as a media player for the telly and my main riog is an i3 based system. Unfortunately it's the oprevious generation of I-series CPU's so I can't upgrade to the very latest CPU but the upside is that the older i5 and i7 quad cores are much cheaper now and will do me for a long while yet.

I'm currently on my 5th laptop in 6 years. I have a shocking record for breaking them. Went through three acer's and a HP before ending up on my current 6 month old Asus K52f which I love. It has a dual core processor though, and being a bit of laptop snob I wouldn't mind a new one with an i5 or above.

 

I haven't had a desktop since i was in my early teens, but recently been looking into building one more or less from scratch. The only problem I have is the lack of space to put it.

Desktop and laptop. Don't really have a preferance because I use them for different things, typically. But my favorite tech has to be my Kindle... with the price being lowered, I'm thinking about getting one to leave with my work kit, so I can have something to read when I'm waiting for shopfitters...

Oh man, my rig is Frankenstein's monster. It's been pieced together from the dead.

 

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop tower that is about 7 years old. It's ancient and runs okay for everyday browsing. It requires constant maintenance though. I have a new refurbished HP tower that I got from a guy I know. It used to be an office computer. He upgraded the processor and memory(4gigs RAM 1 Terra HDD). It's just a matter of getting it hooked up.(I'm lazy and nostalgic for my old PC). Anyway, so yeah. I have a 21 inch NOC screen, wireless Logitech mouse and keyboard and I have my PC running trough my stereo.

 

I prefer desktops over laptops. And as far as Macs? They're for homos and granspas. I think you knows it.

Shopfitters, not shoplifters :P

 

Currently, most of what I do is taking tills out of old podia and/or installing them into new podia... which involves waiting for the new podia to be installed (which is where the shopfitters come in), sometimes waiting hours for electricians to move power and data points if the tills are going in to a new location. Basically, a shit load of time with me sitting on my hands unable to do anything, which is immensely frustrating because I just want to get in and get out as fast as possible. Paid by the day, not the hour.

I just got my new computer running. It's like, whoa! So this is what the internet is like. It's very smooth and I got it at such a great bargain so that's pretty cool.

I've often thought about going for a macbook, then i play with one and find if fiendishly fiddly.

 

I've had my laptop for 3 and a half years now and it still runs like a dream for what i need it for. I severly doubt i'd go back to using a desktop. I have to use them at work and hate them.
