Last night on MoChat we talked about the pros and cons of working on either desktops or laptops. The general consensus was that laptops are great for portability—if that’s your thing—but come render time, it’s really nice to have the power of a desktop. In the end, it comes down to personal preference. For getting the most out of your preferred rig, desktop users recommend upgrading the GPU (as time/budget allows), throwing in lots of storage, and taking advantage of the expandability desktops afford. Laptop users tend to have external monitors on their desks at home to help with lack of screen real estate and external drives are a must.
