    People are working/computing all over the place nowadays ....

    What's your computer (laptop, iphone etc) of choice to use when you're away from your desk/work area?

    - 13/15/17" MBP, MBA, iphone, Blackberry etc ??

    For me right now it's between the 13" MBP and the MacBook Air (I voted for the 13" MBP by a slight margin ... when that's not available my iphone serves me well.

    I have a 15" MBP that is both my road warrior and my home machine. I don't do much heavy lifting on the road beyond the web and media listening/viewing, so I'll bet an iPad will replace the MBP for road use.

    15" MBP, but I am waiting for an updated MB Air. If it gets 4 gigs of ram and the same price, I may jump on it.

    From and after the time I bought a Powerbook G4 17 inch, seven years ago, Mac laptops have been my primary machines. I replaced the PB with a Macbook Pro 17 inch 2.4Ghz Santa Rosa not quite two years ago. The MB Pro still does the same job the PB did but has assumed the responsibility to run Windows apps, which I used to have to do on a desktop PC. I really have no need these days for either a desktop or an external monitor.

    13" MBP here too, actually I dont have a desk computer other than my gaming rig which I strictly use for gaming. Waiting for a dual i5/i7 27 inch imac then that will be my desk computer and monitor for the gaming rig.

    Depends on where I'm going and what I'll be doing there, it will be either a 15" MBP or a 17" MBP.

    I'd consider an ipad with a data plan if it offered multitasking.
