Desktop and I suggest (1) not to overbuy and (2) spend more on the display.

An 3rd gen i3 is more than adequate for most users, unless you have a deal that you can't pass.

In addition to my clone 2008, I bought an Acer i3-2120 in 2011 and it feels great. I added a video card, it was cheap and the w7 64-bit license was included.

A Dell Inspiron 660 i3 or i5 is a great deal these days. I would add a video card HD6670 for 65$ and be done.

For whatever reason, I don't feel that my computer with an Intel SSD is significantly quicker and I would stick with a 7200rpm HDD.
