I have a Seiko labeller at work (attached to PC) and a Brother labeller at home. I would never get rid of the Brother labeller because its portable, and because I don't always have my PC on at home. However, I like the PC labeller so much, I plan on getting one for home. I frequently need to send packages, and I like a typeset label for those. But having both does prevent excuses (of which I have many). So, my suggestion would get both, but if money is an issue, start off with the Brother handheld.
