Do you have your own computer that only you use or do you share one with the rest of the family? I am considering getting my own personal laptop. Typically I share the desktop with the rest of the family currently and am wondering if I would use it enough if I got my own computer.

Lordy, girl, I'd be lost if I did not have 24/7 access to my own computer!  Not that I use it 24/7 - but it is here and mine to use when I want.  I had not thought I'd want a laptop - until I was laid up a few weeks ago and not able to sit comfortably here in the office.  Seriously considered the purchase of a laptop right about then!!

If either of my adult kids are here and need to use it they are welcome to - but I would NOT let a kid use it unless I were standing right behind him/her to make sure nothing was downloaded!!

I have my own computer. Although my husband uses it once in a blue moon. He has a computer at work and an iPad at home, so he doesn't really need to use my computer.  Kids are they don't need to use it either.
