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?
