The Daily Ping

The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

Laptop or Desktop?

I’m in the very early stages of playing the game called, “What will my next computer be?” But I find that one of the big questions in the game is one I faced four years ago, when I bought my current machine: laptop or desktop?

The adage has been that one can get more power in a desktop unit, but that’s not really holding true anymore. Desktops are generally more expandable, but again, not always. Laptops are the only machines for a lot of people. I guess the only thing I’d really miss out on from a component perspective is a big honking monitor. Chances are good that if I get a laptop, I’m looking at either a 15″ or a 12″ screen.

I’m curious what Pingers use, though: desktops or laptops? And why’d you choose what you chose?
