Default Debating.

OK. So I'm gonna be kinda busy this whole next year with moving and senior year and then moving again I expect to be hired here within the next month.

So I am deciding whether it would be better to get a desktop or a laptop.
If I get a laptop, it's most likely going to be this......SAMSUNG R610-64G NoteBook. Or if I decide to get a desktop, it's going to be whatever is best is 3 months or so for $1250.
You should also know if I decide to get a laptop, I will be selling the desktop in my sig.

Now that you know everything, what would you recommend? Laptop or Desktop?

Let me ask you this: What do you use your computer for? What do you plan on using your computer for the next 3 years or so?
