Are you in need of new technology to get things done at the office or in your home? Are you trying to decide between laptops & computers? Both of them have their pros and cons.
The primary advantages of laptops are their portability and how little a footprint they require. You can have a rather spartan desk at home or the office, but also close it up and take it with you to restaurants, libraries, and many other places that have WiFi. You can even travel with it, always having the same machine in your hands.
Having said that, laptops are usually a bit more expensive given their compact size. They’re also more likely to break given how much they get moved, and you’re stuck with the same size screen forever. Also, if you’re into playing HD movies or video games, getting a dedicated laptop can get very expensive to accomplish, given the components that would be necessary.
Desktop computers do offer some advantages over laptops. For starters, they typically pack a lot more power at lower prices, so you get more bang for your buck. You can also far easily get computers that have serious power for professional applications, video playback, and video gaming especially. The flexibility in terms of components and sizes is far more varied, and upgrading them is a lot easier. You can also change the monitor size whenever you like.
For all their power and options, desktop computers do have some potential drawbacks. Depending on the physical size of the case, they can take up a lot of room. Setting them on the floor to get them out of the way isn’t always a good idea given how they can get kicked, accumulate dust, and even be at risk of curious or mischievous pets. You’re also going to have a lot of cables coming out of the back of them, which can get quickly unsightly and disorganized. Also, depending on how much juice it needs to draw, you might be able to only put the computer by itself on an outlet with nothing else plugged in there, even though you also need to provide power to the speakers, monitor, printer, and other accessories.
Now that you’ve read all this, you should be familiar with some of the primary benefits and drawbacks between laptops & computers. Hopefully, this helps you make a great decision about what is right for you.
