Laptops...Portable, go anywhere and always have an onboard battery in the event the power fails. Easily stolen, easily broken. Cant really upgrade the thing except for memory and little things. Desktops...Even if someone breaks into your house, they probably will not want the desktop. Desktop can be locked down in a cabinet or on a chain for further peace of mind. More durable and easier to fix than the laptop. Much easier to upgrade. Not very useful when outdated. So what say you?
