My household has 2 Desktops and 2 Laptops. In addition, I can also access the internet from my Sega Dreamcast (and to a lesser extent, by mobile phone).

I have a desktop and a laptop. My mom has a desktop. My brother has at least one desktop PC, a couple of Macs and some big server-type computer. He's got computers and parts of computers all over his bedroom so I'm not exactly sure how many he has.

We use 2 of the 486s for wordprocessing, 1 as a dedicated internet downloader, and the notebook as the pc part of a pc-based GPS.

As for the Pentiums, the 2 laptops are used for just that...laptoping (is that a word?). For the desktops, One is the server for our LAN, one is used to do simulations of electrical curcuits, programing, and the such, one is used for secure/important work such as taxes and internet purchases, one is my personal computer, and one is my dad's personal computer.

They are all used for other things also, but those are the general uses of them... yes, this house is out of control.

I own 2 laptops myself, we've got a laptop and a desktop at home.

I don't see myself buying another desktop in the future. Yes, I know they can be considerably cheaper...

I have a PII desktop, PI laptop, and 486 desktop. Now my question is, I am going to ERAU this fall, and I will be purchasing a new comp this summer (probably from Dell). So I am looking for advice and reasons as to if it would be more beneficial to buy a laptop then a Desktop, or more beneficial to buy a desktop then a laptop.

Please help me out!!!

TurbineBeaver: DON'T BUY DELL!!

Here in Singapore, Dell are still selling computers with 32MB SDRAM, 6 GB HDD's and Pentium 3 700mhz processors, Windows 98SE with Office 97 while their competitor's computers have a 1 GHZ Pentium 3 processor with 30 GB HDD, Windows Me! Millenium Edition and Office 2000.

If you want,you should buy HP or Compaq computers.

I have a 366 compaq laptop right now.

My other complete computer is an Atari 1040ST. Talk about a classic.

I may actually finish building this 450 AMD KII powered machine soon. Tower. I would like to run Linux on it.

I am also considering getting another tower it the 1 GHZ range or so. But I think I will wait on that especially since I got the 17 inch monitor that I have for the homebuilt machine back from my sister.

My Brother was my original Sega Machine with the CD add on. Remember those?

Everything is on my network. So in total we have 6 computers in our house.

I have two desktop computers, a Compaq Presario and an Apple IIc. The Apple doesn't connect to the Internet, but I keep it because I have so many files on it that would take years to re-do on my PC. I still use the Apple a lot, mainly for a gradebook and for trip itineraries, which use the Appleworks program.
