Do many of you use a laptop or desktop as your main machine?

I have both but the laptop has been my main machine for the past month. I spend about 15hrs a day on it (including work hrs) running mostly office apps and IE6. Occasionally I'll get a game in but for the most part it's mainstream usage. I'm pretty good with maintenance and what not but would that be considered above avg wear and tear?

The laptop has an AMD XP 1500+ , 512ddr, 20gb hd, 14.1" xga, XP home. Not as fast as the desktop but not annoyingly slower either. I guess it's become my favorite because of the wireless card. :)

At present i actually only own 1 machine (1 useable anyway :p) 1GHz-AMD/512mb PC133/60GB/17", I've had this box for around 2 years now.
It runs pretty much round the clock, mostly on the net with irc, mozilla, e-mail open.
I intend to buy an iBook later on this year tho, and that will take over as the main machine :)
