Discussion on: Laptops - what is more important?

The thing I care most about is the keyboard. If you are going to be writing thousands of lines of code over the lifespan of the laptop, you might as well buy something comfortable.

Other than that, I prefer slim laptops that I can easily take with me. When I am home I normally use a desktop computer anyways.

The hard part of determining comfort for laptops is pretty much the same as for keyboards. There's very few bricks and mortar stores with a good enough selection to try them out.

I exclusively use laptops, for better or worse. Usually on a stand with a couple of extra monitors. But I do use it by itself from time to time.
