    desktop, tablet, semi-smartphone - camera - vga quality and tmobile web portals, but it can text.

    I clicked notebook but really shouldn't have. Its an ANCIENT pentium 2 laptop that is gathering dust somewhere.

    I have a no name tablet I bought at Kmart last Thanksgiving (the sales stuff) and of course a ouya I got earlier this year - a hybrid if you will, not really a game console, not really a tablet, not really a computer.

    And I have two active desktops and one in storage. A vista dual core from about 5 or six years ago and a single core xp thats older than that.

    I know as long as I fool around with backing up video I'll never go totally mobile. Though I do have a wifi enabled printer so I technically could since I have a wifi n router and game consoles and a bluray player that can do a bunch of streaming stuff.

  7. Desktop and dumb phone, recently complemented by a discounted Surface RT. I can't see myself going fully mobile since I use resource-intensive things like compilers and simulators, not to mention the occasional game, that are best on a high-powered desktop.

  13. Primarily laptop these days with occasional desktop use. My wife has a tablet, but mostly only uses it as an ereader and game machine.

  17. Desktop is my workhorse and catch-all computer. Laptop is my recreational and secondary computer. Smartphone is my 'mobile office.' And, Tablet is my game playing and ugh, it's 2am and I can't sleep so I might as well surf the net and read golden age comic books device.

  19. Mostly on my desktop, with the tablet replacing an older laptop as the "coffee table machine".

    I have two laptops and a netbook that I rarely use.

  20. Two desktops, an old laptop that just needs a new LCD cable and a netbook with puppy linux and boot from an SDHC card. I use the netbook mostly as a video player for long trips.

    So the desktop is dead, eh
    For the nth time, with the possible exception of certain Intel processors, I don't have/ever owned anything whose name starts with "i".

    Main desktop = laptop if needed.

    But day to day mobile = iPad.
    It came in very handy earlier this year, when I was mostly bed-ridden,

  27. A half dozen desktops, even more laptops and 6 smartphones/tablets/players. I rarely use the desktops except for a MacMini used as a DVR.
    2 Macs, the rest are PC's. Mobile 3 ios, 4 android. I prefer Android although ios is good, just harder to load media files on. Waiting for the next Goggle 10" tablet.
    I think I need help!!! lol
