I lift 4 times per week, and my sessions routinely last 1.5-2 hours. I've never used an intra-workout drink other than water. I'm gonna try the 1/2 water, 1/2 Gatorade idea, and see how I feel.

I think the individual, their types of workouts, and the other supplements used answers that question better than an outright yes or no. As a guy who plays hours of basketball as my cardio, I will lose what lean muscle I do have if I don't stay hydrated and keep my blood amino content going.
I'm not gonna go too far on a tangent about my disdain for GATORADE but I'll say this... Too much sodium for a relatively nonexistent amount of potassium per serving and they're part of the reason why the price of whey went up. The sugar content of gatorade is something I gave up on because some people need it intra and post activity. I personally have a genetic pre disposition to diabetes in my family. Therefore my carb types are hawked at all times. I'll stick to HBCD and low GI carb supplementation when necessary.
That's the long answer... Now the Short answer... Take them if your pre doesn't provide ample aminos and means of hydration; or your activity is that extensive.

Intra's seem to be more marketing hype than anything, but I can def see where they may be beneficial.
