Hank...when one is cruising and living aboard, it is tough to take your desktop into town to hookup to the local internet cafe or find a wifi signal. Also...when on the hook for months at a time in a harbor let me assure you that amp draw is a concern of every cruiser. At the dock....in home territory with a good wifi connection a desktop makes sense. I would say more than 9 of 10 cruisers we meet use laptops.
