Since the sales on computers are starting up until the new year, I am mindful that my aging home desktop with a 21 inch screen is getting a tad slow, as in stalls temporarily, and I am tending to do more and more on it all at once. Common things running all at once: tv show, spreadsheets, 5 internet sites, ...My options:1) new desktop with Intel 3rd generation i72) 15" laptop with 3 Gen i73) 17" laptop with 3rd Gen i7I do not need a big Harddrive, do not play games on it, I have contemplated getting a laptop which I could connect to the 21" screen but also disconnect it and take it to another room such as on the rare occassion I go to watch the big screen tv where I could multi-task. Typically when I do fire it up I am on it for a few hours in 1 stretch.I am used to the big Microsoft keyboard and am a hunt and peck typer (2 fingers). Would I adapt back to a laptop ok? I used to have a couple laptops at a previous job a decade ago and was happy with them (15").The 17" laptop seems a big big but has a nice size screen to see charts. I would never be carrying a laptop for more than 15 seconds (room to room) max. 15" laptop takes up less real estate. My eyesight is ok but I am not old but not a spring chicken (progressive bifocals which I forgot I have until now).With a laptop I could have 2 screens running (the laptop and the 21").The desktop provides more computing power for the $$$ but is stationary.The laptop I could HDMI connect to my tv for ..... in place of using my BlackBerry Playbook now (which works good for watching tv on the big screen.... as I have no cable or satelite).Oh what to do!?The TV show just stopped playing while I was typing this.Any thoughts or experiences are welcome, pros and cons.Thanx in advance.IKan
