I usually use the desktop. Laptop and phone are for when traveling. Laptop pretty much used as a terminal to connect to the desktop. Recently traveling, used phone only since didn't need to "ET phone home" to the desktop.

Computer TypeCountPercent.MacMSLinuxAndroidiOS
Desktop 3 60 . X
Laptop 1 5 . X
Tablet 1 5 . X
Phone 1 30 . X

If you want to enter a table, copy this code, when you get into editing, select the A/A thing in the upper right corner, then paste and put a square bracket "[" in front of "TABLE]" and "/TABLE", fill in your data.
Code:
TABLE="head"]Computer Type|Count|Percent|.|Mac|MS|Linux|Android|iOS
Desktop                   |     |       |.|   |  |     |       | 
Laptop                    |     |       |.|   |  |     |       | 
Tablet                    |     |       |.|   |  |     |       | 
Phone                     |     |       |.|   |  |     |       | 
/TABLE]
here on the first row:

FWIW, I believe my current desktop PC will be our last. My next "PC" will either be a laptop, an iMac, or (most likely) something plugged into an HDTV.

DW has a laptop if I ever need the convenience in the meantime, but hasn't been necessary in over a year - the iPad can do anything I need on the move.
