    What do you use to get online?

    I've used a iPad for years now...when I have to use a laptop for some reason...it's irritating...don't think I could go back to a keyboard...Im too used to the iPad keyboard screen. Soooo, what do you prefer? Computer, laptop, iPad, android, cell phone....

    At home it's a Desktop. Out & about it's my Mobile, on Wi-Fi where I can - on Mobile Data only if I really have to. At work - full business network.

    A desktop for preference or a laptop if I'm out and about - if I'm desperate then my 'phone for reading but it's a pain as an input device.

    When I use a computer I tend to be typing a fair bit and the method of input is important to me.

    I've tried a tablet and it does nothing for me - why tie yourself to the manufacturer for any software you want and throw away the keyboard for an inferior input?

    I prefer to use the laptop at home. When not home, I use my smart phone. I had a tablet given to me a few years ago and didn't like it.

    Re: What do you use to get online?

    What I need is a physical full-size keyboard which isn't wireless, and a screen distance I can focus on without glasses that's not so small I can't distinguish the writing easily.

    There's lots of ways I can get that but the easiest is a desktop. It's a long time since I took a desktop with me anywhere, I use a laptop for that.

    I'll occasionally send photos from my phone with email, or read a webpage, but the only thing I write into on a phone is SMS. I dislike touchscreens.

    I've never found a use for a tablet.

    If I want to reed in bed I have a Kindle 3 which is ideal.

    Re: What do you use to get online?

    it depends on the time of day....If it's during business hours, I have a monster iMac Air with upgraded everything, hooked to a 24 inch monitor and a 5 terrabyte external hard drive. The whole array is hooked to both a Denon surround sound system with massive 12" Pioneer and Teac speakers and a state-of-the-art LCD projector that projects to my whiteboard so I can draw on the image. I use it for everything from spreadsheets, to videos and Youtube Edu, to school programs.

    At home, during the evening, I use my home iMac which is also upgraded and is hooked to my own MyCloud server. It has my entire DVD collection and 102 Gigbytes of music that will stream to my TV via my Blueray player. If nothing's on on the 800+ channels I have, I just watch a movie off the server.

    After hours, I usually check my iPad in bed before I go to sleep and in the mornigns for the news...

    Yep. I'm a techie!

    Re: What do you use to get online?

    Desktop, I have a laptop as a back up in case of failure or if I'm away and will need to use a computer. I find laptops just too slowand irritating in comparison to a desktop and I like a big screen. Fed up dodging people not looking where they are going because they are using a phone or pad while walking.

    When I'm out wandrin, I have my Macbook Pro laptop with me. When I get back to my home/office, it plugs into my iMac and the homebrew server (and virtualization system) with monitor and keyboard.
