I have a phone but I hate using it for the web. So 99.99% of the time it's my laptop.

Agreed, except I never had to switch back from phone to laptop. A laptop is so much superior it's not even funny. Using a phone to browse the internet is so annoying. Sites take much longer to load, are displayed the wrong way, have unclickable buttons and are more difficult and slow to navigate. Tapping the wrong button/link because of inaccuracies or just big fingers happens frequently.
You also don't need a shit ton of apps, because surfing via browser is already convinient enough.



Congrats.

I mostly use internet, for simple browsing stuff like VGC, on phone myself. Last week though I actually bought a new laptop myself, a new 16" MacBook Pro. I need it for work, but this thing is so awesome that I see myself using it more and more for browsing myself as well.



I only use my phone when I'm not at home. At home, my laptop is way more convenient.



Same way I feel like desktop over laptops. Sure you can hookup a mouse but most people don't with laptops. All I have to say is fuck that tiny keyboard and fuck trackpads and balls or whatever fuck they are

I only ever use my phone for browsing if I have no other choice and I absolutely need to look something up. Otherwise, it's always on a PC/laptop.

I use my mac pro with 30" display, keyboard and mouse. Haven't had a better experience surfing in the web so far with anything else.



Only using my Phone if I really have to and have no other option.



I got rid of my phone a decade ago.

I use my laptop with wired mouse, track pad is disabled. It's more like a small desktop, always plugged in gaming laptop with 144hz ips screen and nice keyboard, I never move it. It's usually charging controllers. Great for browsing with SSD and 16 GB ram. I always have dozens of tabs open, 12 GB ram in use lol.

I have no issue at all with the keyboard, but yeah the trackpads are mostly garbage.

But even a €10 bluetooth mouse is enough. Works on my couch, my bed and even my clothes, so no need for a table or other flat surface.
