I have a HP laptop that is probably 5 1/2 years old now running Windows Vista (sweet! lol). Although I do a lot of posting from my iPhone too.

When I switched jobs, I had to give back my ipad! Miss it so much

Computer? Try computers! Blum 3 We have a *few* in our house. These are mine:

- Personal Laptop: ThinkPad
- Work Laptop: ThinkPad
- Netbook: HP
- Desktop computer: HP (but I inherited this one from someone I do computer work from)
- Tablet: Google Nexus 7

Hubby has a couple desktops, a work laptop, a netbook and a Samsung Galaxy 2 tablet. Then there are the servers....we won't go there. Blum 3

We like our gadgets!

TOTAL geek. I mean, we both have Computer Science degrees....so there's some evidentiary proof of our geek-ness. Blum 3 I love my computers though! I hardly use the netbook but just HAVE to keep it for some reason. It's SO cute...red with flowers on it! This is it:

I bought it second hand from a friend and used it quite a bit before I got my tablet. It lived in the kitchen and was a great cookbook! Blum 3

I'm not a super fan of Apple. So I'm probably the wrong person to ask. I'd say no to the iPad. While I like my android tablet, there are just some things I need a laptop for. I do the majority of my web time on a laptop and only use the tablet occasionally. It totally depends on your lifestyle, but I'd chose a laptop any day.

That's what I was thinking. I'll be using a lot on maternity leave I am sure when I have a chance anyway. iPads are pretty expensive anyway and yeah.. I think I'll do the laptop. I love apple.. HAHA. I love my iPhone!

We are running our iMac in to the ground! We like Apple around here. We have a 7 year old iMac that is still going strong! We updated the operating system once but other than that we've had no problems. Plans are to get a new computer next Christmas.

DH has a Samsung laptop that he uses for his 2nd job (he teaches a tax class at a post-secondary level) and other miscellaneous things. He is also technically the owner of our iPad but the whole family uses it.

I think when we get our new computer we will just get a laptop, but get a second monitor - we could set up the second monitor in our bedroom and be able to watch movies on the laptop but on a much bigger screen. We don't have a lot of technical uses for our technology - as long as our family computer can let me use the internet and basic word processing, I am happy!

We have an extremely old Mac desktop for the kids to play with, an older MacBook Pro (which overheats when you watch videos), and a new MacBook Pro. I love our laptops.

We were just trying to decide whether to get an iPad or a new laptop, and went with the laptop for storage reasons.

We love our iPhones too though, and their like mini iPads, right? Wink

I have a new laptop that runs Windows 8. I like windows 8 but I sure hope they make some improvements! I like where they are going with it though. DH has an Apple desktop that he loves and I hate! If I ever use it, it is just to look up something quickly on the Internet. We have a 1st gen iPad, so out of date now, but works fine. I like Apple gadgets but not their computers.

My ipad is the mini, i got it because i received a $300 apple gift card from direct tv! I do like apple gadgets. DD uses it to watch netflix while we watch shows on the tv and shes crabby. She also draws on it, and I take it with me anywhere with wifi or i may get bored. lol But mostly i use my laptop.
