Cool. I never bought any Apple products as they are expensive

Apple is expensive to buy, but it'll remain stable for quite a long time in return.
For example, I bought an iMac (first Apple product I owned) in 2009, and it still runs smoothly with no issues of any kind.
On the contrary, each time I bought a Dell, Acer, ASUS, HP, etc., I had to buy a new one before the year was over.

And the Microsoft Surface line is really good too, but I didn't bother to buy a Surface Pro 4 (I only have a Surface Pro 3), because Linux is still not fully functioning on that one.

My laptop is a HP one. It worked for me for three years and the company said it's the lifetime of every laptop

3 years is not the lifetime of every laptop.
It depends on the hardware it uses, on the way it got assembled, the OS it's running on, and most importantly: what the user is doing with it.
I've had a 2004 laptop on which I ran Ubuntu since Ubuntu 6.06 LTS came out (it ran Debian before that), and it held on for 10 years.
I only don't think it'll be usable today if you work online, most websites and apps made with web technologies will be way too much for it.

I never knew that. I accepted that answer then. May be next time I would give them a piece of my mind

I prefer a laptop but acts like a desktop most of the time. Also, my laptop is like a mini Gamecube because I sometimes take it to school to play games with my boyfriend.

I prefer using my desktop most of the time but I usually go on my laptop late at night when I just want to relax in bed.

Do you have your own desktop and laptop? I have only desktop for myself and my younger brother uses it to play games sometimes.

Yes, I've always been a desktop user but I was given this laptop from my school and once we graduated we were allowed to keep them. Its a pretty decent laptop so I use it a fair bit.
