in terms of customizations of hardware, i like a Desktop PC. it has higher potential to be customized. for a Laptop, you have to buy it exactly how you want and cannot by easily changed. i personally do not like the format of the Laptop keyboard. it is now better now that you can buy a full size keyboard on the laptop. for me, i play games once in a while on my computer and it takes a lot of CPU and RAM resources to play. with a laptop, it generally runs a bit slow or i cant get the maximum potential of the game. for me, i play once in a while im rarly out of the house where i would need a laptop. laptop bring convience , but desktops bring power in my opinion. so i would choose desktop over laptops

for a user like me who does not have the money to buy a laptop, i would prefer desktop pc. i can play games, browse the internet and type documents using a desktop pc. if i have the money already, i will buy a laptop and would prefer using it.

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

the only difference between laptop and desktop is that desktop is not portable where as laptop is portable. I'm having both Desktop as well as Laptop but I prefer to use laptop because of its portability as I can take it anywhere and anytime.

desktop pc for me laptops only have one advantage in my opinion thats that they are portable and you can move them around easily because they are small. also a laptop will never last and be as reliable as a desktop pc al lthe time its being used, the batterys tend to break down quite easily after using them several times you need to buy a new one, the hard drives arent too great either they can be unreliable and often break. the keys on the keyboard can come off, now if that happens to a desktop pc you can buy a new keyboard for a few pounds with a laptop it will need to be sent off to be fixed. desktop pc's are far easyer to repair than a laptop too theres many parts you can quickly and easily remove and replace where as with a laptop you have to take lotsof screws out to get inside it to replace anything. laptop pc's arent usually upgradable, you could possibly have more memory or a larger capacity hard drive put into them but thats about it and if your lucky you might beable to upgrade the processor but thats a rare occurance. laptops are over priced you get more for your money with a desktop and you have a lot more options too, a pc tower can be placed under a desk a keyboars shelf can be fitted inder a worktop or desk and a monitor and speakers put on top of a worktop or desk and you wouldnt need any more than 1 metre square space for al lof this plus your chair of course.
