At home, it's a combination of desktop/netbook/tablet/smartphone. I primarily use the desktop for normal surfing/gaming, netbook for RDP'ing into work, tablet/smartphone for couch surfing. At work, it's just work laptop/desktop.

My shiny new desktop of course! :) I have always used my desktop as my main system. I have a laptop and smartphone as well, but can't justify squeezing all of my tasks into a tiny screen and less powerful system (laptop).

Desktop. Mobile devices are nice, but they'll never replace a desktop PC in my life.

I use my desktop mostly. I gave my laptop to my mum when I picked my current machine up. Occasionally I use my phone for some light web browsing but not for heavy-duty tasks.

Funny. My Surface seems to be a computer by definition. So are iPads, and other tablets. They all compute. They all do work. Care to try again?


I agree anything that has a processor/hard drive, etc is a computer. Its just which category as in Mobile or not honestly, so The King of GnG is wrong in his opinion for sure

My desktop most of the time for most things, my Nexus 7 for simple web tasks and similarly, but to a lesser extent, my Nexus mobile. I do intend on purchasing the Nexus 4 tomorrow, possibly a Nexus 10 as well but I doubt my technology usage pattern will change, but we'll see :)

Thanks for the replies thus far. Personally, I use a desktop most of the time, probably more than 90% of the time. When I was in school, I used my laptop all the time, but now that I've graduated, I touch my laptop probably less than once every few weeks. I also have a tablet, which I use second most, behind the desktop. It's nice to use while lying in bed or on the couch. I use my smartphone only when I'm not at home (at work or out and about).

Hands down desktop PC. Use them everywhere, with no intention of changing. Of course, using Windows 7.
