Desktop or Laptop?

Photo of the office taken this morning. Sorry for the lack of updates - 201% of my life is currently being eaten up by the production of Culture Japan Season 2 which started its broadcast yesterday in Japan. In the meantime, you can catch more regular updates on my Twitter, Facebook or Google Plus.

As I'm editing many of the shows myself, I've been working on the iMac of late with Final Cut Pro X. Ever since I gave up on Windows desktops many moons ago, I've stuck to having a laptop as my main machine - have so far gotten through a PowerBook G4, MacBook Pro 15" and my current main machine is a MacBookPro 17". Didn't like being tied down to a desk with a desktop which is why I stuck with a laptop.

Have not used the iMac this much before - its a 2009 second hand model which I've upgraded to 16GB of memory to handle the editing. Tis a much faster machine and have been thinking of using it as my main machine instead of the MacBook Pro. All my data is stored on a portable 1TB USB drive so I wont necessarily be tied down to the desk I guess.

Most of my work these days are editing but the main tasks I use my machine for are mail and design.

Got healthy mousepads and mice for both machines but I still use Teleport to control the iMac from the MacBook Pro.

What is your machine setup and what do you use for your main machine?

You is being using what for your main machine?


What do you mostly use your machine for?


You prefer which?
