Nobody can tell you what's better for you - a desktop or laptop PC. You'll have to find that out for yourself. Obviously, a laptop is easy to carry around, but a desktop with the same specifications is usually a little cheaper than a laptop.

Also, what hardware you want greatly depends on what you intend to do with the PC. If you just want to surf Internet and read e-mail, all currently available new computers are good enough. For multimedia applications and games you'll want to get a faster processor and better video card. For software development, you'll want a reasonably fast processor and more memory (at least 2 GB).

Agree with Jesper. I would personally go for laptops because of their portability; if my wireless network works I can surf JavaRanch in bed.

If you simply want to surf the net and use office applications, then the least expensive computer you can find is probably best.
