How many have both a laptop and desktop?
I don't. Besides, in the age of Desktop Replacement, such things such as desktops have become obsolete.
Three PPC notebooks for me...
Powerbook for me.
i'd have a desktop editor too if I had the bread. I may pull the trigger on a used G5/2.0dp once The Steve drops the big news at WWDC.
G5's for pennies I tell you! Free for the picking...
with the desktop replacement notebook is the desktop dead for non pros?
I myself only have a laptop, but there is a dell desktop which is a family computer. So I voted just laptop as I'll be going to college soon and will leave the dell behind
Not really. The ability to take around your work is rather nice. And those big 15", 17" inch screens are good enough that anyone doing work in stuff like Aperture and Final Cut Pro. Besides, they can just plug it into a nice big 30" HD Apple Cinema Display if they so choose to.
BTW, I saw Powerbooks on the set of Stargate.
For those that need more than 2 Gb of RAM, well, I heard rumors that the Macbook Pro can take two 2 GB sticks of RAM, though this is heavily debated.
i have a MB and an old PowerMac G4 (that's been upgraded, though). i don't use the desktop too much.. need a better monitor first - old CRT's give me headaches
I don't use computers with carbon ray tubes.
On another note, I found out that with using laptops instead of CRTs, my vision has actually gotten better.
I have both, but your poll has major flaws, people can only vote once and you have 2 different option Laptop vs Desktop and Intel vs PPC.
I have a powerbook and am about to get an old powermac g4. Let's hope I'll use the powermac
No one uses computers with carbon ray tubes, try cathode ray tubes lol
