Laptops have long been the preferred machine for many shops. Personally, I can't image buying a desktop, as I work from a number of locations (I'm writing this from a comfortable chair in a comfortable house on Cape Cod). And laptops that can be taken home dramatically increase -- often to our detriment -- the number of hours we all work each week.
The same set of circumstances is driving sales of netbooks, which now outnumber the sales of PCs and laptops combined.
The low price, around $300, is one driver. But I think ever greater mobility is the real deal. Instead of trying to get your cell phone to jump through hoops and actually compute, why not get the real thing?
