I am not the most computer-savvy person out there, in fact, I figure I rank in the bottom half. So I am clueless when it comes to all this technology and the gadgets that go along with it, not to mention the programs and coding, but that's another world altogether. (Recently I've been asked to help someone do a project in Photoshop - I don't even have Photoshop on my laptop, and have no clue how to use it. Well, that'll teach me to say "yes" without finding out all the particulars *g*).
So my question is: what do you prefer to use, a laptop or the desktop, and why? What do you consider advantages to the system you use? I've had both, and for what I use it for, I didn't really see much of a difference, other than my laptop I can take with me...though I never do. Next year, I think I'll be in the market for a newer model, so I'm always curious to know what others recommend. Is it smart to have Photoshop on a laptop? Does it really make a difference?
People always say: it depends on what you're looking to do with it. Well, I use it mostly for internet access (email, blogging, Yahoo groups, etc) and now I'd like Photoshop, but do you think I need anything else? Oh, I've also been doing some proofreading for an author as well as one of my friend's papers who's taking a class, so I would like a program that offered me the ability to do tracking (?).
Any and all feedback is appreciated so I can start looking around and getting more of an idea of what I want to purchase. Maybe if you share what system you have and why you like it/don't like it, that will help me. Of course, there's always that risk of too much information, which will only confuse me, but I'll take that risk. For example, some people love Mac. I mean, they LOVE Mac. Why? I've never had one. What makes it better than a pc? Sorry, I'll stop asking questions, and let you respond (or not). Have a great day :)
I know for some, this is a boring topic, so I'll try to post something more fun later LOL.
