    Definately the way to go. I have both too, except in my case the laptop is better. The only thing I hate about the laptop is not having a real mouse when I'm away from a desk (I have a portable optical mouse for it). Other than that... it kicks ass. And with two computers, we get some serious games of Battlefield 1942 going....

    I have both.

    I prefer the wireless mobility of my laptop although my desktop is faster and has all my downloads on it so its stacked.

    Same here, I have wireless router, but I still have to plug that into the wall and plug in the ethernet cable...but oh well.
    I like my laptop more than my PC, but I need to get a desk tho, tired of sitting on the bed.

    yes it does get better than that...

    sitting on the shitter with wireless dsl and talking shit on the internet...

    i have a desktop too (recent kick down) that i'm working on getting updated cuz it has incredibly massive storage space... with the 2 external hard drives, i could fill my laptop completely and still copy the entire fucking thing onto the desktop about 80 times... that thing'll be good fun once i get it up and running...

    If you can, I would avoid wireless DSL. It's nice to not have the cords to tie you down but I have experienced a lot of problems such as the following (and keep in mind I have a friend who is a computer tech that has been working on everything since I set it up):

    1. We have 4 computers set up on the network. One can only stay connected for about 5 minutes at a time. Who knows why.

    2. If you have any 2.4 Ghz frequency phones, whenever someone calls or you call out, everyone will be disconnected from the network due to frequency sharing.

    3. If you play any games via a LAN network this shit is confusing as hell. Some computers in our network for some reason can't host (even after we disabled our firewall),and others can't even see eachother.

    Get the dsl with wires.... easier to set up, easier to trouble shoot.

    Desktops. The power in laptops will never be as powerful in the same
    timeframe, the technology is always many months behind.

    ex: laptop video cards
