I say laptop, in part because I am one of the few that don't have a smartphone yet.

Although with the recent power-outage from Sandy I do see the benefit of a smartphone in those scenarios. My chromebook includes free 3G (until January) so that became one point of contact to the outside world.

So if I had a smartphone, I suspect I would select that.

Ultimately, though, either means is to what I am even more thankful for: the Internet. :)

Netbooks! For me they have the best of everything I need. Long battery life, flexibility in software, flexibility in OS's, lots of connectivity options, and portability.
