What is your preference for using the Internet - desktop, laptop, ipad or phone?

#1
What is your preferred hardware for using the Internet? Desktop, laptop, ipad or phone?

I prefer a desktop myself, both at home and at work, as one can settle in behind it, turn on the music or put headphones on, kick back and relax. I also like using a keyboard and have a large monitor in front of me.

For traveling I use a light weight laptop, Toshiba's Ultrabook. Last year when I purchased the laptop I was hoping I was going to use it more often, but find myself only using it when I'm traveling.

Although I've tried out an ipad, I haven't purchased one so far. May do so when they become a little cheaper, but am afraid that like my laptop, once purchased it will just gather dust somewhere. If I do get a little bit more with it with my hardware, I'd like to do something about buying a good smart phone. Maybe towards the end of the year, and after a new desktop at home.

I like my desktop at home, but also use my laptop quite often. Particularly since it's more up to date in technology in comparison with my desktop. At work we've got laptops as I'm out in the field most of the time.

I've got a Dell desktop at home, still using Windows XP, but I'm very comfortable with it. Not really into laptops that much. Have a really good desktop at work. I've got a BlackBerry phone that I'm very happy with, but am using it mostly for contacts and checking my e-mails. Doubt I'd use it for Forums. iPad looks interesting, may get one one day.

I have only a laptop and use it wherever I go.

I'm at 12 hours myself, and sometimes go as high as 16 hours. I agree, it has to be too long. But I like it! Tongue

Am curious. What desktop are you using, brand and specs? Reason I'm curious is I should be thinking about replacing my desktop at home.

Definitely desktop, latop keyboards annoy me to the dickens. My thumbs always end up touching the mouse scrolling pad.
#26
iPad ones are worse. I brought a keyboard with my laptop to Vancouver. So when I use my laptop, it's usually with a keyboard and mouse.

I use my iPad quite a bit for browsing the internet. I have a desktop, but since I'm a gamer, I use it for gaming, and it also has a server on dualboot when I'm not gaming. I use my laptop mostly for the internet browsing.

I don't understand how people use an iPhone keyboard or any of the onscreen keyboards, I find it harder to use with my fat fingers.
#29
Same hear. I also think with keys. Have to have a solid key feel in order to think clearly. Tongue

Sadly that means using the blackberry...I don't know why phone makers aren't offering more options when it comes to smart phones with keyboards.
