Question when was the last time you used or owned a desktop?

Anybody here apart from me who still prefers a desktop to a laptop/notebook.

Anybody here who has till now never used a laptop like me and is always a commited desktop dude.

What were your reasons for ditching your desktop and circa when did you ditch it?

Do any of you are forced to use a desktop at office?

Re: when was the last time you used or owned a desktop?

97-2007 wify used for flight sim.. me always pref laptop cos of battery backup.. I use linux and hate windows so laptops are better choice and they are quite handy.. I dunno if I will ever get adjusted to desktop. I like desktop keyboard and so use a USB keyboard when at home or office and a wireless chooha both places so no issues that way and at work usually had a dock to use the bigger monitors and or multiple displays.. desktops are so out of fashion.. yes you get faster machines but unless I need that kind of LOCAL processing speed, I would not opt for it.. MOst of processing is done on the servers anyway... (solaris boxes).

Re: when was the last time you used or owned a desktop?

Last used desktop in 2009 in office off-and-on ..had a personal desktop which I disposed off in 2006 ..

Nowadays , I think therre might come a stage in 4-5 years when we are asking the same question of laptop with tablets ruling the roost .

Re: when was the last time you used or owned a desktop?

Pelu will the desktops extra muscles in anyway help in speeding up ones browsing experience for the same connection.I guess no as max bandwidth avaliable in India is way less than that a poorest configuration wala laptop can chew.So I guess on the same internet connection via usb dongle in india there wont be any bottleneck in preferring a desktop to a laptop unless local speed is required....

No.. none at all.. atleast noticeable.

Re: when was the last time you used or owned a desktop?

If you own your own house or are pretty well settled wherever you are , desktop makes sense.

If you are moving about . desktop is just a dabba that needs to be hauled . Laptop fits the bill perfectly.

I started with a desktop, then went through a series of laptops, and now I am on a all-in-1 desktop.

What is all in 1 desktop ?? I have heard this term used to describe the printer-scanner-fax thing, but not for computers.
