Thought of all the computer users it takes just to meet at HTF, and hoped it might be a place to ask. I have zip time for research (as I would normally do before any purchase) and was wondering… I need to possibly purchase another computer due to business related issues. Was considering a laptop, without having the traditional reasons for it. I would be moving it just around the house, (to mix up where I work). And had a vague idea It would help me Visit with my mother at times if I could hangout over there and (sad state of affairs) get some work done during part of the loafing- hanging out at that location. I am utterly out of the loop on current tech now and never familiar with laptops. Are the keyboards irritatingly miniscule or (ever) comfortable keyboards to type on….or for an immense amount of work would you always prefer your desktop? What would you rate their greatest plus/minus during daily usage? I like a large screen, which necessitates a larger outlay in a laptop, as the largest displays offered, would barely suit me. …Would be awful to jump to this purchase …then hate it. Do any prefer a laptop over their desktop for everyday use…or only out of traveling business necessity?? Thanks for any thoughts on this subject! Especially any like me (gone before) who had wondered if laptops are suitable for a primary application and found it was a mistaken assumption or a convenience they enjoyed.
