Do you own a desktop or a laptop?

I have a laptop. For me it is the best as you can choose to work on your computer or go on the Internet from wherever you want in your house. It gives you more liberty. It is also useful when I go on holidays, I take it with me and can, for example, transfer the pictures I take with my camera directly onto my computer. And this is very useful coz I take loads of pictures when I'm on holiday.

I have got both.Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Laptop,will consume less power and has LCD.Hence radiation will be less.Less weight and less cumbersome and can be taken anywhere stylishly,in a leather bag.Its battery will run for about 3 hours,if fully charged.This is the main reason I am having this.It will take sometime to get adjusted to the "MOUSE". Desktop is static,and one cannot take it anywhere,quite often.The one I am having has more RAM and is very fast.But my monitor is old and hence there is possibility of radiation(one can check it,as there will be a sensation of "waves",when one holds one hand near the monitor).The UPS I am having will be enough for 15 minutes,in case the power fails!

As students consider purchasing a new computer, one inevitable decision will appear: should it be a laptop or a desktop? Students must carefully consider their computing needs in deciding between these options. Over 93% of students choose the portability of laptop computers over the power of desktops. Each type of system has its advantages and disadvantages, which can be summed up as follows: Pros Cons Laptop Portability, access wireless networking in public locations Less powerful, harder to upgrade, more expensive, less resistent to theft, more prone to component failure Desktop More powerful, easy to upgrade, less expensive, more resistent to theft, less prone to component failure Not portable, hard to store during summers The obvious disadvantage of a desktop is its lack of portability -- once it is plugged in, it is difficult to move to another location. Laptops, on the other hand, can easily be moved for doing work anywhere. Students with laptop computers can also take advantage of the network connections in many Yale libraries and classrooms. In addition, students who have wireless-capable computers can access Yale's wireless network that is available in many campus locations (complete list of wireless sites at Yale). Bear in mind, however, that with portability comes a greater risk of theft. It is quite easy to steal a laptop computer, and students with laptops must be constantly aware of this risk. See the Laptop Security page for more information. If you plan to do most of your work in your room, it is most cost-effective to buy a desktop machine. Upgrading or replacing parts is much easier on a desktop machine than a laptop. Students who plan to compose music, design graphics, or perform other demanding tasks may decide a more powerful desktop would be better for them.
