There very well be a relevant thread on this topic, but I cannot seem to find one. Long story short - I am starting a few years of programming/computer science schooling in September and I am most definitely in need of a new computer. I much rather work on a desktop, however, I know I am missing out on the convenience of having a laptop at school. What is the ideal programming choice? With a student loan coming in, the possibility of getting both a desktop and a laptop (price dependant) is on the table.
Just hoping for outside opinions!
