I prefer subdirectories. Google recently made a change in where they are now counting links between subdomains as internal links instead of external links, so that makes it make less of a difference than it used to, I suppose. So it really depends on your application ;) Keep in mind that links between subdomains will always need to be absolute URLs within your HTML. If nothing else, that is extra bandwidth b/c it can bloat up your HTML. Also keep in mind your application will need to support reading cookies between subdomains (often they do by default, but just something to not forget).
