My husband and I have 2 notebooks and 2 desktop computers. I would have to say we use our notebooks more because of the convienance. We have all 4 pc's networked so we can access all info from any pc, we just have 1 printer/scanner connected to our network and this works well for us. If you get a notebook I would recommend not to go to big, they are heavy and cumbersome, I dont know if you have had a flat screen monitor, but like a television there are much clearer and sharper. I also do alot of graphics work and digital photography and I dont personally have a problem with my 12" screen notebook (which only weighs 4 pounds) and then I have a 14" flat panel monitor with my desktop. Hope this helps
I am a DT publisher/graphic designer, about to totally upgrade my equipment and I'm having a hard time deciding between notebook (17" screen) and desktop. I cannot afford both. I like the idea of mobility, and like the idea of a large 21" screen or so.
I am well aware of all the pros and cons, but would like to know what YOUR experience and preference is, if you got a notebook and found the screen too small for graphics work, and got a desktop, or vice versa.
