I haven't *really* gone the smartphone or tablet way yet.  At home it's the PC for photography, I don't play games myself, for most things I would be satisfied with a laptop - the keyb is very important for typing in MS Office and Outlook email.  My phone is only a 3" which gets the job done when I am outside, that email or that GPS. 

I don't have a tablet b/c at home there is the laptop, if I didn't have a laptop I may get a tablet to lounge with if we travel overseas can use it.  NZ hasn't really taken off with 3G or 4G, so while I may get a newer Smartphone just for Google Maps b/c some countries that I visit are not on Nokia Maps you cannot really use the potential.  Like if you're on travel in NZ, it's cost prohibitive as people like to do - stream videos, Skype chat to do things as they would when they are at home.  Mobile calling have gotten a lot cheaper these days my first mobile phone was $2 per minute for NZ dialling.  With calling you can use it without much hesitation, unlike data.

So true. I have them all, unfortunately. PC, notebook, tablet, and smartphone.

I still prefer the PC but its lack of portability makes the long distance relationships difficult.

Likewise. I couldn't do most of what I like to do (or work) with something as small as a tablet. I found laptops too small even.

Laptop with a decent graphics card > all.

Kids and Family mean I rarely have time to sit at a desk and play so my PC went a long time ago. Laptop I can sit with in the lounge etc.

Tablet is probably next, but probably just for some movies and games.

Smartphone - not a fan of consumption on a small screen.

I use my Desktop a lot, Very rarely use my Laptop, I much prefer the 2 screens, Use my phone a little when I absolutely must but still prefer the Desktop, Might get a Tablet one day, When I decide my phone is no longer good enough for browsing the internet on the toilet.




Perpetually undecided.

Laptops seem archaic after getting used to my win8 tablet, it's only atom powered so not a complete replacement more like only a 98% solution but i will upgrade to the next generation of Intel tablets once they get atom levels of battery life with i5/i7 levels of power. At that point i guess the desktop is dead and obsolete for the majority of consumers
