Default Re: laptop s vs. desktops?

Yeah I have a pretty top Desktop and a decent laptop. I can do pretty much any gaming and multitasking I need on my Desktop, but as for my laptop I can still game a little, but it's great for surfing the web, taking to classes, taking to friends etc... It has a dual core and 2 gigs of ram. :-D

I agree with having both. I have my desktop for graphic design, movie rips, gaming etc. and a Acer wal-mart special to surf the net and watch movies on when I am eating or something.

(what has the world come to when you can't be away from the net to even eat?)

I wanted a Alienware Laptop for gaming and taking to class multitask especially would get wireless net on it to use while in the car they cost so much though.
