    Making my own. Saves me uninstalling all the crap (if its ready made). And I know whats on it. If I build it. Depends if you want it to be portable. Obviously you cant carry a desktop around all day

    Build a desktop. If I need portable computing, then a netbook. As for a tablet, I don't really see much use for one unless I start entering a lot of equations into OneNote (my most likely use of one).

    Desktop, DIY will always be my main PC, parts are easily replaceable and can be "handed down" to others ans required or kept as spares/used to make another computer.

    I am stuck with a laptop at school ( I board) therefore it has to be powerful enough for ALL of the stuff I want to do making it expensive. When I go to uni (or IF I go to uni) i'll probably get a cheapish laptop and keep my desktop for the "real" work.

    Dont see myself using a tablet other than a media remote or something if I have massive amounts of money to spare on that. These days the likes of the Galaxy/Nexus/WP/iPhone are perfectly capable of doing all the nifty tasks

    Build my own, currently have 3 and have trouble justifying that even to myself. (Gaming machine, Media PC, other PC for experimenting on)
    I think tablets are cool, and I kind of want one, but I haven't yet thought of anything worthwhile I'd do with it.
