Is it better to get a desktop or a laptop? I will be going to school in my homestate, so bringing it home from vacations won't be an issue. I never liked staying at school for longer than I have to, I study better at home, so I don't know if I would ever even bring a laptop to school. Dell has a really good deal on desktops right now (pentium 4 for $469). All the Dell laptops cost more, but if someone can convince me it would be better to have a laptop, I would consider it. I know nothing about computers, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
