    I already have my PC (in specs). I dunno if it's worth getting a decent one (4GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 15" screen etc).

    Do you plan on using the laptop for anything specific? If not then no, its not worth it.

    I guess Knight Rider, it's just awesome to have a 2nd machine going but I don't really need one for anything SPECIFIC. I'm still debating on it though. Just nice to have a PC and a laptop really :/

    if your a school/college student then i would buy a laptop since there would bound to be no computers available to use in the school/college facility but then again i don't know,be great to use your own comp instead of school comp as you can play all your music and watch movies when your bored and maybe some light gaming or some fun lan party game of some CSS.
    If your always on the move then sure get a laptop.

    A low power web browsing machine is always a useful tool as long as it's easy to maintain/snappy. That could be done with an atom machine and you wouldn't be overpaying for an LCD TBH.

    Yes, I use a cheap netbook. You can pick them up for under $199 right now with all the sales going on. It's super-handy! :D
