The Price Of Portability

Whilst it is true that laptops are now being required to handle activities that are more closely associated with desktops, such as high-speed gaming, they are still essentially limited by their status of portable systems. This means that not only are laptops vulnerable to a series of potential problems, but also achieving processing power that rivals desktop computing can often come at a premium.


The immediate disadvantage of a laptop is that it is easily stolen. This is one issue that no amount of laptop hardware engineering will be able to completely solve, as a laptop is a portable system and therefore will always have the potential to be carried away. In order to limit the access of a thief, however, there are a few steps you can take – for example setting passwords, and even keeping your laptop hardware in a lockable case.


As laptops are constantly being moved around, they are also vulnerable to all sorts of damage, exasperated by the fact that they must remain lightweight to be effective. With this in mind, it is much more likely that laptop screens will be damaged than desktop screens. Luckily, at Laptop Power finding affordable laptop screens and other laptop hardware is easy, and we’ll even fit the laptop screen for you.

Power Consumption

In order to stay effective, a laptop must be able to hold power for a reasonable amount of time. Luckily, laptop power supply is constantly evolving, so it is now possible to by laptops that have good battery life. A good tip for maximising battery life is to shut down your computer every time you’ve finished using it.
