For real work, desktop all the way.
For the amount of work I do on the computer, everything has to be perfect - chair height, mouse position, screen position, keyboard, etc.
Laptop only for trips or away from office.

THAT is my biggest issue with laptops . . . I need to be comfortable which means a full size keyboard -- and when I travel, I take my keyboard to use with my laptop. 

I have 2 big screen all in one machines in my office, and my laptop is packed in a suitcase from the last trip I took (last year!) LOL

I have no real preference, but that would depend on where I'm at. In my vehicle I prefer my Surface tablet with keyboard. At my house I use both my desktop which I use as my server and my laptop.

 

FYI - you could always just purchase a USB or Bluetooth Keyboard to use with your laptop!!!

I have both. However, when I was working from my laptop I always use an external keyboard and mouse ... much more efficient. 

Recently I converted to a desktop with a large monitor.

I find the keyboards pretty much the same on desktops and my present laptop. Now iPads are a different story, I can't type on those; need the keyboard attachment.

I have an ASUS 2-in-1 convertible laptop, which I connect to a couple of monitors on my desk. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse which I use also. So three screens (including the laptop) plus a full-sized keyboard. Works great. When I leave the home office, I pack up the Asus and take my office with me (including a mouse).

My last couple of computers have been laptops.  They sit off to the side and are connected to external keyboards, mice and multiple monitors.  Right now I have active rain up on one screen and on my other I'm remoting into another laptop in another part of the house and running programs on it.

For years I used a desktop at home and a laptop otherwise. When the desktop needed replaced, I bought a second laptop and set it up like a desktop with a full size keyboard, wireless mouse and 24" monitor. The laptop is just used as the computer and it works great, you would never know you were not working on a desktop.

At one time I had a docking station for the desktop laptop so it was easy to disconnect if I needed to take the laptop with me but haven't used the docking station is years.

You just have to get used to the 'flatness' of the laptop. I'm just as fast on either one. I use a mouse on my laptop - faster.
