Do You Use a Laptop at Work?

The elegant ladies of Lipstick Jungle are Apple lovers — two women have MacBook Airs while one has a MacBook Pro. The most notable thing about their laptops is that they use them at work (and in the bathroom, yuck).

Gone are the days when everyone had a company-issued desktop computer, and here to stay is the time when work goes with you via your BlackBerry and laptop. Like it or not, our lives are portable, and many employers have figured out that it makes a lot of sense to give certain employees laptops they can use on the go. I've got my work laptop, what about you?

This one is kind of weird for me. My work gave me one, but as I am a consultant, each client either gives me a laptop or a desktop. So, I usually end up with atleast 2 computers on my desk at all times. One allows me access tot he client network, the other allows me to vpn to my company's network, and each allows me access to websites the other won't lol. the key is remembering which allows what websites lolol

Work gave a beautiful MacBook Pro! I love it, especially since my Powerbook at home is starting to show it's age. I used to have a iMac at work, but my boss asked me if I preferred a laptop and I opted to go that route and I'm sure glad I did!

Work gave me a laptop..I have to use a couple extra monitors and a wireless keyboard at the office, so it feels like a desktop. But I take it home a lot too, because it's newer and better than my Dell laptop at home!

It depends on where you work within my organization. We are planning to go all laptops with docking stations when we do our next refresh so that everyone will have the opportunity to telecommute which I'm really excited about. Right now about half of my coworkers have both a laptop and desktop. I only have a desktop so I'm always borrowing someone's laptop or using my own personal one for's a pain in the a**...

They issue us a laptop, although I usually keep it hooked up to the docking station, so it feels more like a desktop.

We use laptops, and all desks have docks with monitors, keyboards and mice. When you are at your desk to just dock up and it's like having a desktop. Best of both worlds....and I can work from home on the VPN.

I travel a ton so I needed something portable I already had a laptop I liked so I kept it, but they were willing to get me one. I did get a smart phone for work though. I work from home, so if I can't get email on the go I feel guilty for leaving the house. Sad I know.
