Was a desktop until 3 weeks ago, when I got a macbook and left it behind. I turned my desktop machine on for the first time in a fortnight on Thursday ...

iMac G5 2.1Ghz iSight is Main system I use daily. There are other Desktops like modded G4 DA 1.8Ghz, Core Duo Mini for other work & Home Made AMD 64 system for Gaming.

Laptops are for network service calls and fun away from home, iBook G4 12" and Compaq AMD 64 for PC Network work.

733 mhz g4 is my main system... use the ibook once in a while when I sit on the couch...

06-24-2006, 02:15 PM
iMac G5

06-24-2006, 02:21 PM
Macbook. It's all I need right now. I might eventually get an iMac or Mac Mini in the distant future.

06-24-2006, 11:27 PM

hopefully an intel imac soon.
why not one of each :)

I love my iMac, but I'm also planning on purchasing a Macbook, those things are speedy! :headphone

12" ibook...

However, I feel desktops are far superior (generally). They are much easier to upgrade and do not become out of date quite as easily. However (like me) right now I need the portability with college, shooting surfin' videos, etc. Hopefully, if I run in to a few extra dollars at college I'll have a mini ATX for gaming.

i love my i book <3

06-26-2006, 07:16 PM
my intel imac is my "main" computer, but since i bought my ibook last week i've been taking advantage of its portability and doing work outside.

06-27-2006, 12:17 PM
my main computer is a windows. but i hope to get a intel imac or some kind of apple desktop in about 1 yr time

06-27-2006, 03:01 PM
Powermac G4 - maybe a MBP next year, after Q2

07-07-2006, 06:27 PM
Main is the Quad 2.5 GHz G5, but this is because of FCP & DVD Studio Pro, I feel cramped editing on a laptop.

I love my PowerBoor G4, but it is just for portability. The work takes place on the desktop.

White Macbook 1.83ghz just shelved my old self-built overclocked P4 Northwood gaming rig.

07-08-2006, 05:30 PM
iMac 20 inch w/Intel Duo Core

07-08-2006, 05:31 PM
You should have offered an option for "Both". When at home my QUAD is my prime computer, but when I'm out on business for extended periods my iBooks becomes the prime computer.

07-10-2006, 03:10 PM
i will have both in the future, but right now it is just the mini.

07-28-2006, 08:30 AM
Since I am in LawSchool, it is a Laptop all the way

07-28-2006, 03:24 PM
My Duo Mini is still being shipped to me :( UPS better hurry their butts or when they come to the door and hand me the box I'm throwing eggs at them.

PowerBook G4
1.5GHz; 1.5GB DDR; 80GB HDD

But...I am upgrading tomorrow to...

2.0GHz Intel Core Duo; 2.0GB DDR2; 100GB HDD

No need for a desktop computer for me ;)

i'm a laptop guy....

i have 1 desktop to play games etc. but i'm mostly on the laptop...

actually now taht I think about it, i use both at the same time.... unless i'm in the living room or in bed, or work then its obviously laptop

07-31-2006, 05:10 AM
I like both. My laptop allows me to sit in my garden and potter around on the internet and allows me to take all my work to college and and bring it home again. And my desktop allows me to run downloads and encode video with out any problems and it I can also leave it on for longer periods of time depending on what i download.

But if I had to choose... It would have to be my MacBook

07-31-2006, 05:16 AM
I've used laptops but I'm on a desktop now. When the new "powermacs" come out I'll get one of them, I need the extra power and options now. I'd get both if I could though.lol.

07-31-2006, 06:33 AM
I want a lappy. I just got a Mini, and I'm selling my PC so I think I can get an older iBook for under $400

07-31-2006, 12:52 PM
Intel iMac

03-20-2007, 12:33 PM
Desktop for me. I just couldn't imagine working on my laptop all of the time.

03-20-2007, 06:25 PM
My G4 15" PowerBook is my main computer, and my Cube is a secondary one for mainly music (or streaming if I'm not at my desk).

The 15" screen is a little small, but when I get my MBP for Uni this September, I'll be buying a nice external widescreen to have a dual display setup, plus a Griffin Elevator + Apple KB/MM.

MacBook is my main computer. It's great to be able to take my main computer I used everywhere.
