    I use it for everything - the only time I ever need to use a laptop is if I need a bigger screen (say, to look at past papers etc) or if I need to print.

    Impressive™ recommends purchasing one of the smartphones. You can use broken TSR app and a torch if you get scared in the middle of the night.

    That's literally it. I've never really got people doing everything on their phones. It's basically just a less effective and potentially extremely irritating (typing long messages on a phone takes so long that I usually get bored and annoyed half way through and give up) way of doing what you could do on a laptop.

    My phone is much faster (response time wise) than most computers I've used. Albeit yeah, typing up long replies or pieces can suck but the convenience helps.
