I think there are laptops that is as powerful as desktop computers and laptops that are made for gaming but it cost a lot though.

Both have there pros and cons. A desktop is usually more powerful and runs cooler but isn't easy to move around. A laptop is not as powerful as a desktop and heats up quicker especially in the summer months but you can take it where you want to. If you just want something you can surf the net, check your email, play games on I would suggest getting a desktop. If you like to be outside while you surf, check email you should get a laptop.

There is a "desktop replacement" class of laptops but they do tend to run the hottest and the battery life on them are not all to good.

well it depends on your needs and where will you be using it. in my opinion, i don't really believe that desktop is more powerfull and laptop is not. they are all equal as long as they have the same specs. yes laptops heats easily but what are laptop coolers and fans are for? :)

I prefer Laptop. It is more convenient for people always on the move. Desktop is best for those always in the office or at home.

It depends.If you're always on the go,pick laptop.But if you rarely use,pick desktop.Laptop can be use anywhere but a good laptop can cost a lot of money.While the desktop,eventhough can't be used at Starbuck,it is much cheaper to get a really good rig.

laptops you generally need to buy a new one every 2-3 years to keep up to date .. with PC (desktops) you generally just swap parts so it would be cheaper and less hassle rather than moving data and programs
