Hi there
You need to add another category such as OTHER

People who take their laptops out into the field to do say Geological surveys, or attach their machines to Engineering / lab devices for research say into Sub atomic physics, or even basic things like 3-D modelling /architecture etc.

I use mine a lot also for modelling real time Stock Market trades and trying to devise and implement Winning trading strategies. A lot of people also log on to sites like Betfair (a Betting exchange) and bet in REAL TIME ("In Play") on Horses etc - and often Lay these --this means you say Horse XXXX WON'T win - but if it does you PAY the bookies odds.

Then a load are used for CYBER CRIME - but don't expect people to fess up to that one here !! or even for industrial / or other espionage or even just for plain practical joking such as creating Dos (Denial of Service attacks) against organisations / institutions the perpetrator has had trouble with.

There are other uses too -- but even THINKING about these might put you on the CIA's notice list -- and "Rendition" still exists in spite of Messeur Obama saying it would end.

The use for PC's is as varied as the Human imagination some good and some most decidedly evil -- you can't really ask this type of question - especially as a lot of people who use computers in these sorts of ways would never log on to these types of Forums in the first place.

Cheers

Hello Trendy, you might want to consider putting those options in a poll and, as Jimbo suggested, adding the category "other".

Anyway, I mostly use my laptop for school, as that is the reason I have a laptop.
Besides that I mostly design stuff using Photoshop, GIMP or the like, and I also use it to listen to music, watch films and browse the web.

Internet and pc/smartphone/device troubleshooting by either USB, remote machine or whatever.

At home I have a gaming rig which is used... wait for it... gaming! And also internet and the odd video editing job.
I also have a netbook that is used in the field and when at home as a download server (because it makes more sense to leave it overnight than my main gaming rig)

AND... Don't forget the wife!!! I point to the desktop and ask "what do you think this is?". Response: "It's the internet thing, where I get my coupons!". AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!! Just joking, she does keep me busy changing ink cartridges, though. I, when I get my turn, love to tinker. Just cause "they" say you can't do that, is all the reason I need to try! Thank God for restore points! Trendy, have a good time with the storm system we have RIGHT NOW (in MD), you should get the effects in about 72 hrs.
