    For me, it's the ease of use of getting on a computer as opposed to trying to navigate certain web pages on the browser. I find the Pre browser to be in need of improving for loading issues (loading only part of the page and having to do a browser reset), and other text formatting problems. I hope with the Flash update and future updates to the browser, that it will only get better.

    What are your reasons?

    My Pre can't run music production software like my Imac can.

    I could probably do without a computer if I could just copy paste anything, and download files off the internet

    I can't imagine there is anyone who uses their Pre "exclusively" over a computer. It's a heck of a smartphone, but it's hardly capable of replacing a desktop or notebook. Since I got my Pre, however, I find that I get up from the couch much less often to go check something online. For quick Wikipedia or Google searches, the Pre rocks!

    +1. I can't imagine anyone who uses a smartphone, be it the Pre or iPhone, as a replacement for a desktop or laptop. I type way faster on a regular keyboard, I get a bigger monitor, wireless is more reliable, etc.

    easily the monitor...if it had video out, it would be a tougher question.

    exactly. screen real-estate, and a better keyboard

    Having said that, I spent 2 weeks in sweden visiting my inlaws last month and had taken both my laptop and my pre (the pre was on their wireless network) - I didn't even take out the laptop..

    I think a better title for this thread would be "What prevents you from using your Computer exclusively over the Palm Pre?"

    For me THAT would be getting out of bed & waiting 5 minutes for my PC to boot up completely to hit the web... or to watch a movie in bed... bathroom browsing (yeah i said it)... sudden outdoor web access (can't take the computer with me even if only for a moment outside).... can't take my PC to work... etc.

    Mouse and lightning fast app switching. I use alt-tab dozens to hundreds of times a day on my PC, and it responds instantly. Also, I don't have to constantly zoom in and out of large complex web pages.
