I feel im going to go down this path as well. Since college started i haven't touched my desktop. Like you i believe having a desktop in your dorm is a waste of space.Even when im home for breaks i haven't touched my desktop. Maybe one day i will be using a desktop again but not in the way you rediscovered desktops i guess xD.
im the opposite, i love my desktops but have never owned a laptop. Their so fun to build and play around with
I've always been a desktop guy and never really saw the use for laptops. From what I've seen in college, the only real benefit a laptop had over a desktop was that you could take it to your local Starbucks. To me, desktops have always been the best bang for my buck in terms of performance at the cost of mobility. Now with smartphone and tablet advancement, laptops are becoming even more obsolete.
When I came to University I had the choice between a laptop or a desktop, and I chose a laptop - which is something I regret, mostly because I didn't realise how much free time I would actually have to do the things I enjoy (playing computer games). Now when I do that on my laptop it tends to get very hot, which is a great annoyance.
However, one of the main things I love about having a laptop is the mobility, as I'm currently sitting in bed relaxing on this lazy Sunday afternoon.
Perhaps one day I'll have the money for a desktop and be able to enjoy the pros of owning both.
I only ever use my laptop for work and even then it's not very frequent.
I was under the impression that laptops and desktop's gap in power was closing. I went ahead and got a laptop. Sigh... Wish I has just built one back then, but I am now too poor to afford another computer.
