laptop vs desktop
1 Feb 07
desktops is good for performance, laptop is good for mobility. Each of them have advantages and disadvantages. Depends what you are looking for: for sitting home I recomand you a desktop(i preffer INTEL processors and motherboards fpr beter compatibility not AMD CPU). When you're away from home, in your car i suggest a laptop (ACER Laptops are good and cheap, Lenovo are good too). And try to use a desktop PC in a fastfood

mobility is the biggest feature wid laptops but desktops (specially assembled desktops) have more processing power n resources than the laptop in same price category. There is always problem of up gradation with the laptops. usually i prefer assembled desktop.

Desktops and laptops are becoming very close in their capabilities it's a matter of what your primary use is for them. If you're traveling a lot and you need the computer to be accessible to you at all times, a laptop is the only way to go. But a desktop has more going for it in terms of cost, durability, and ease of maintenance. Laptops' biggest advantage is portability it also makes them more vulnerable. They're more likely to be dropped and broken, or lost, or stolen. You can probably store as much data on a laptop as on a desktop, but you probably wouldn't want to risk losing it all. Traditionally, desktops have had zero portability you only could access files located on your desktop computer from that computer. But that's changing; your desktop may stay in one place, but your files don't have to. USB (Universal Serial Bus) memory keys, small devices that plug in to your computer to extract or load data, let you move files from one computer to another quickly and easily. And wireless networks allow you to work on the same files from any other networked computer. Just as Internet capability is no longer a desktop vs. laptop decision point, features and functions are equivalent between the two, although desktops generally have better sound quality. The cost for a laptop is considerably higher than for a desktop with comparable speed and power. Although laptop prices are falling, you'll still pay hundreds of dollars more, Service and repair costs are much higher too. To get at the parts, laptops pretty much have to be taken apart. The parts themselves are more expensive, almost double, and labor costs more. With a desktop, you can just open the back or side panel and replace the parts. Because desktop components can be added or removed separately, unlike many laptops' all-in-one design, desktops can operate without some parts.

i prefer using a laptop because it's convenient and i can bring it everywhere i go. i can also use it for school works, etc. aside from that, my brother won't even dare to use it because he's not really comfortable in using a laptop when he's playing online games or either just surfing

I feel very uncomfortable using that small area in laptop which which is a mouse substitute. I thought i would get used to it but it irritates me even now. Another disadvantage is your instinct is to keep it on your lap. So, having it so close to your body can affect your health. Otherwise, laptop is advantageous.

Have you ever tried to lug a desktop along? They are sort of heavy. And the laptops now are not like the limited ones they had a few years ago. They are also cheaper. The hard drives are smaller and can hold more, you can have a dvd drive and dvd recorder, they have the wide screens. And they are portable. That is a big plus.
