I spend a lot of my day on the computer, but it’s mostly word processing and working the Net, with the occasional minor Photoshop and audio file editiong. The most intense gaming I ever do is Solitaire and a rare game of computer chess. I’ll watch a clip on YouTube, but I don’t download movies.
My monitor is dying, my desktop is 5+ years old and I’ve done all the cheap upgrades (memory, hard drive, more ports, etc) that I care to spend money on. I notice that I can get notebooks and add additional memory for more or less the same price a new desktop would cost, without a monitor.
It’s a given that I’d plug in a better keyboard and mouse, as well as an external hard drive. The question, I guess comes down to whether the monitor on a notebook will give me fits and I’ll get fed up and want a better screen.
What say you?
