>>45364378 You are part of the problem. I'd rather have plugging my laptop in be an infrequent interruption of usage, rather than the portability aspect of it being a short jaunt to the next power outlet.
Still love my Dell Latitude E6400 to death. Beautiful design, functional like not many other piece of hardware ever made, upgradable in ways other laptops can only dream of (I have 3 wireless cards in mine presently, one of them even doing Bluetooth 4.0 duties + 11ac Wi-Fi, fuck using USB adapters), great size and portability (14.1" 16:10 1440x900 panels = perfection), put a 240GB Intel SSD in it, screams like a motherfucker these days.
9-cell battery + 12-cell slice = I consistently get 17+ hours of use from it when I'm out and about doing my thing (the 3 wireless cards might clue you in, maybe not).
>>45366106 knowing software these days they'd probably be running vanilla jvm running android, through emscripten on node.js in firefox os or some other batshit stuff so that you get about 10 hours max
>>45366765 Isn't it obvious? A laptop is designed for mobility. These days I am on mine all the time, I can't even decide on building a desktop at all because it would be a waste of money for me personally (at this time). But right there is an answer to your question of why one would "invest" in a laptop instead of just pouring everything into a desktop, no matter how much more economical that may be.
seems like the mindset wrt mobile devices (smartphones, laptops, tablets etc.) is just to replace it, since the technology tends to improve and become obsolete more quickly (lower power consumption, integrated gfx performance)
by contrast, desktop size is pretty consistent, power consumption not as important.
not a huge difference between sandy bridge and current CPUs, compare to iris pro vs. integrated from before.
