I definitely prefer my desktop. One, the screen is nice and big. I also find it way easier to type with the desktop keyboard as opposed to the flat keyboard that most laptops have. Same goes for the mouse. It's far easier to use a normal mouse as opposed to the laptop flat move with your finger mouse. To top it off, with the desktop I don't have to worry about bumping the screen and changing the angle accidentally or batteries dying.

Ya, Laptops suffer many shortcomings including use of battery and mouse bed. Desktops are more robust for sure www.friendstime.com

Laptops. For sure. If you have kids or people always nagging you, you can always bring your laptop with you and go to the library, or the basement! They are cheap, efficient, and the computer you need to get your work done. Cheers, Eddie Wang

Yes dear, Laptop is much convenient but if a computer is to be used for any heavy use like graphic design or programming, then Desktops are better as thet offer a robust configuration. Laptop suits those who have limited work. Prashant@friendstime.com

When it comes to certain things I prefer desktop like writing articles or something like that. However, most of the time I prefer the laptop because it's compatable I can take it around the house with me, and handle business the same only with a smaller keyboard. It did take a while getting used to typing on the laptop though, and i still prefer the other keyboard on my desktop better than the laptop. I find myself on discussions a lot on my laptop simply because when i'm writing articles at the same time on my desktop i have my laptop on the shelf above my keyboard on my computer stand and it makes it much easier to do two things at once. So i find myself doing that a lot also. But Great discussion.

I to feel that desktop is a better option than a laptop because we can work more efficiently on desktop rather than laptops. we can work more efficiently because i am habituated to it and I think that I like desktop computers rather than laptops while working longer. But I like the look of the laptop because it's cooler when compared to desktop computers also laptops are easy to carry while traveling and we can work from anywhere so they have the own uses but I like desktop more than laptops

Desktops have fixed structure so you adjust yourself according to that but in laptop, along with adjusting yourself, you also need to manage the machine and if you want to work longer, you must attach the battery charger wire, which makes it more in convenient.. www.friendstime.com

I prefer desktops because they are cheaper compared to laptops and usually have much more customisation options.

Both laptops and desktops have their own advantages and disadvantages.laptops are portable but desktops are more powerful.laptops consume less energy compared to a desktop but their batteries are weak.Desktops give you more control over what you do. For long time sitting it is best to go with a desktop because it gives you a best posture of sitting and doing work than a laptop and therby less strain on you allowing you to concentrate better on your work.So overall i prefer a desktop over a laptop

I prefer laptop because wherever you go you can take the laptop and use it and also it is preferred when it is having same capacity of desktop because we can do the things if we are in remote areas also using laptop and when we are in out of station we can use the laptop if it is not support efficient than desktop better to for desktop.
