Desktop is the way to go man..cheaper, more powerful, can use for extended periods....easily upgradable components...

Unless you really need the portability, otherwise desktop is really the better option i feel.

Desktop... cheaper than notebook with better speed.. unlimited storage space.. and can easily upgrade the HW.. replace LCD for bigger screen..

Notebook.. too many limitation..

Again, it depends on your usage.. if you need a PC for your work - travelling, no need to ask.. notebook..
But if you need PC for photo editing.. it'll be desktop.

If there's no need to work on the go, then a Desktop is the way. But for me, I'll choose a laptop because of my working style.....;) All depends on your need and requirement. (I own both the imac and Powerbook btw).:thumbsup:

Aiyah.... Notebooks nowadays are like time-bombs. Any moment, it will explode or burn right in your face.

This gives new meaning to burning and dodging. When your laptop burns, you dodge.

Acer failure rate abit worrying though. I think for design, Apple's the way to go. Desktop or Notebook, you can't go wrong.

Haha, sorry let me rephrase. Design as in design work not the aesthetics of the computer.

My iBook G4 will remain my travel companion.

But if I've got my 2nd computer, a desktop would be the way to go.
