    I vote for the laptop unless you have a dedicated office space to set up the desktop. My laptop can be put away so that my 1 and 4 year old cannot get to any part of it. About 2 months ago I got an...

    Buying soon: Xti,k10D,d40x or d80?

    Budget
    Hard to put a price on a healthy addiction but $500-$800 body only and then glass as I can afford them. At least one decent (maybe third party) lens to start.

    Size
    Doesn't really matter...
