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

So yea, a good desktop at home and an ultrabook to bring everywhere.
Can imagine that your specs must be pretty good. Are they Apple hardware?

in this order: Laptop, Android Tablet, Android Phone, iPAD (at school) lol

It all depends upon the situation and requirements. An IT professional can't survive with a laptop or macbook on the move. But developments in the market is making the gap between mobile/tablet and laptops narrower day by day. There are up coming innovative concepts that going to turn around the way we distinguish between these devices. Think of a mobile phone that is as powerful as a desktop, which can be connected to all the devices a PC/Mac do. I think some products are already in development in these directions. Let's wait and see......

I go around a lot so my galaxy s5 is my bestfriend but when im at home then i prefer to use my laptop pc due to the capabilities and being able to go to better websites

laptop or desktop - browser, bookmarks and mail as portable apps on usb. Then iphone and ipad, but missing flash and ignorant site-coder sucks. Last but not least the raspberry linked to tv

I have always preferred to use a Desktop. It feels permanent. I like to belong.

I also have a Note II, but I mainly use that on public WiFi when I'm out and about and must stay up-to-date with my work emails or play Candy Crush. Candy Crush is important!

Actual work requires a desktop in my opinion. And I'm a PC gal... no Mac for me.

Great stuff. I feel the same about my PC and describing it as "home" is right on the mark for me. Good

I am using all in parallel. To be honest, I tend to surf the internet on my tablet as it is convenient on the couch or in the plane. A phone gets more and more back to the original intention of a phone, to call and receive calls.
I use a Laptop connected to a full keyboard / mouse and a 27.5" Monitor. Works pretty well.
I have always preferred to use a Desktop. now I also use Phone. still having some hard time using Laptop. I need to use external mouse when using laptop for easy access and to feel comfy

So do I. Have been doing it over my recent holidays to the amusement of my cousins. Think it is the feel of the mouse that does it for me. Works better for me than my index finger.
same here, for me to get a decent work flow going using the laptop pad I have to use both hands
we need virtual reality gloves!
find your mind monkey, take control.

Now that is an excellent idea! Cool
I use all of them. However if I'm into serious Web design I do prefer desktop. Just much more convenient and easier to work with graphics as well.
For me, Desktop is more comfortable for my back and sitting posture and I would definitely prefer it over Laptop at home. Apart from that, Mobile whenever I am taking relaxing or just checking mails and messages online.
Here comes the pain!
I prefer to use my PC, it is more confortable than laptop and well... when I'm out of home I use my smartphone and it is like a tablet :P

Am curious, what model smartphone is it?
I prefer to use a desktop to browse the internet
I guess I'm old school since I prefer desktop. Main reason for that is I can't type fast when I use Laptop keyboard. So for most of my work I use Desktop and use Laptop only when I'm not at home or want to be in bed. ))

Desktop is most preferable. Another mobile is only not for fan.
A computer of some form. I use tablets and phones but I've grown up with a computer. It's just easier to use in general.
Phone or tablet. With a desktop or laptop you need to turn it on, wait, sit on a chair, etc. Android devices seem to turn on much faster, and I usually leave them on all day. You can also use them laying down, which is nice. I still love desktops for Photoshop work and web development though.

My preferred method of accessing the Internet is my desktop computer. If I have the space for a laptop while on the go, I prefer to use a laptop. If the laptop would be too bulky for the day, then I would use my 2 in 1 Windows 10 tablet with keyboard. If that is too much load, then I would use my Android tablet. If that is too much then I use my 6" android phone. If that is too much then I would use one of my Android devices with a smaller footprint. And, finally, if that is too much, I would resort to using WAP on my non-smartphone which is what I use for my day to day cellular phone calls, simply because sometimes carrying a smartphone takes up too much pocket space. LOL Tease

I like to use a phone or tablet when while lying down also. That is why I installed the Inkscape app on my Android tablet in order to have a small Linux system on my tablet. However, now I have a Nextbook 2 in 1 11 inch tablet running Windows 10, originally 8.1 updated to 10.
For news and socials I think smartphone or tablet are the same.

I prefer laptop if my search could expand: for example in programming context searching "mysql" can provide "swarm effect" since reading a post I can discover the existence of "pdo". After reading "pdo" i can discover "hydrate" concept and so on... In laptop browser I can open multiple tabs and have a good overview.
I think everyone would like to see from a larger screen, but is that not everyone has a computer at hand at all times, then we must use other platforms, such as phone, ipad, laptop, etc.
For me it will always be computer or laptop. Websites seem to still be made better for computers compared to phones which are still quite hard to use on phones especially older websites. the screen is also bigger which means there is more breathing space on the webpage.

Phones are fine but when it comes to real productivity, laptop and desktop rock !Diablo
