Desktop; plan for a laptop in the future, as well May 4

To see the way in which, other colleagues work, is fascinating.
I have a desktop for now, and plan to purchase at least one laptop in the future, as well.

Pen and paper? May 4

Computers lack the warmth of human approach, that's why working with pen and paper only is a great option. When translation is done, you just attach a message to a pigeon's toe and send it (the message, not the toe) to the client.

That was how I started. A long time ago.

Both at the same time May 5

I have a desktop and two monitors at the office. But since March 16, 2020, I have been working remotely, using a laptop connected by VPN to the desktop (so I can continue to use MemoQ, which is on the desktop). I have a 23" monitor attached so I still have dual screens, mouse, and external keyboard. I recently purchased an ergonomic Perixxboard-512 which I can use with the laptop and also my personal Mac mini.

I mostly use the remote desktop, except for things that require micro

I mostly use the remote desktop, except for things that require microphone and camera, because the laptop is a bit slow. They have issued me a new laptop, but I haven´t had time to set it up yet. I should be able to have MemoQ on it, but they have to install it because of admin rights. Once everything is set up on the new laptop, I probably won't have to use the desktop remotely.

One desktop, one monitor - for lack of better options May 5

As a student, I work entirely on a desktop with only one monitor.

Once I get more financially stable, I plan to buy another computer - perhaps a gamer laptop - strictly for entertainment. By dividing work space from fun space, I expect to get more work done more quickly, and less procrastination.

Desktop w mechanical keyboard May 5

Desktop exclusively. I love my desktop with a gigantic screen that displays up to three documents at a time. I'm a speed typist and invested in a mechanical keyboard. Anything less would slow me down.

While it would be pleasant to work on my laptop on my shaded patio, I go there to take a break from the screen.

A desktop, of course 02:06

Laptops are not suitable working devices, despite what the users believe. It only becomes suitable when you attach a separate keyboard, a separate video and a separate mouse, that is, when you transform it into a desktop. However, it costs almost twice as much as a desktop and it loses up to 50% of its speed when it heats. So, really, only those who never tried a desktop still work on a laptop.

"Users" believe otherwise.

I love these absolutist aphorisms… Not.

Why should everyone fit in the same mold and subscribe to one and only worldview?

"Despite what users believe"? Ridiculous.

Laptop

Other 09:37

I use a laptop and an All-in-One.
An All-in-One computer combines the display and the computer or the "tower" into one single unit.
I like space and technology and I avoid having lots of wires and cables.
