      If things on your motherboard start going bad.

      I used to have big towers, but I've gone all miniature now.  I mostly use a 17" laptop and my cellphone these days.  Though I do have a server that I can write backups to.

      Realistically, I don't think those parts go bad in isolation.  Note, they are still PCI devices, they still talk on the PCI bus, they're just integrated into the motherboard instead of a card.

        ...and needs. Portability points to laptops, these days.

        My biggest beef about laptops is the fragility of the tab in the USB ports. Calamity Jean has an older Dell D-620 that has two of its 4 USB ports unusable because of that. There's where I'd wish for a daughtercard for those, since the machine has outlast at least one hard drive.
