You own, or prefer to own: MiniPC / Desktop / Laptop
What kind of PC would you rather own and use every day:
a Mini Barebone PC, a full blown desktop or a lightweight laptop?

laptop: ok for surfing, not for gaming
barebone: small, looks good, silent and is perfect for gaming

Own all three of them currently and in the past.
1) Laptop good for mobility - if you frequent travel on business; staying in Hotel a lot; or just lazy to surf in your bed; your work is not heavy engineering oriented.
2) Mini - hiding the small box is easier if you have a woman or two around .... they rather see shoes all over the house than a ful tower PC case.
3) Mid or Full Tower - give your friend the impression you know what you are doing ..... impression could mean everything.
So, I have a laptop when I travel; Mini in the family room to drive a big screen TV and manages my music playing; 7 Towers around so my dog must walk carefully around them. Women know you are not easily be controlled and fight over you.
No open bench rig; although it is easy for testing components; it is not a true representation of daily use in both office and home.
Hence, I own a sports car; motorcycles and 4-wheel drive.

- a lot of spacy for extra hdd's,
- good cooling + room for watercooling ....
- higly moddable
- It can do allmost everything I want from a computer.
- screen, keyboard integrated
- works on batteries
- it's small but you can't use it like a laptop because you still need a screen, keyboard etc..
- less possibility for high end cooling
- not much space for extra's (more hdd's etc..)
- I don't like the shape of most mini pcs

I currently own all three. I've got a normal desktop a64 which is my gaming / burning machine, a mini PC which I use for LAN parties and a laptop for school / serious business. Of them all, the laptop is the most used computer and I feel that will continue up until my graduation.
