A Laptop or a Desktop?

There are many raging debates in the field of computer technology, and the one that is most pertinent to the public is the desktop versus laptop debate.

Desktop users claim that breakage, inferior power and expensive laptop hardware replacements are among the reasons for choosing a desktop instead.

The good news is that it isn’t all bad news. Laptops have some great features and laptop hardware is improving all the time.

The most obvious of these benefits is portability. With a laptop you can work anywhere, whenever you want, and get access to files on your computer any time you like as long as your laptop is handy. You can take it with you to conduct presentations at another office, and still finish off some work on the train on the way home.

Having a laptop at home means your living space or bedroom doesn’t have to be dominated by an enormous computer.

An interesting counter-argument to the complaint about inferior power is the advantages that it affords you: laptops require less power which means they are more efficient and cheaper to run. They usually come with a battery that can last for up to six hours, meaning you can work without a mains power supply (and you don’t always need your laptop power supply cable) on journeys or if there is a power cut.

Laptops also offer you a quieter and more peaceful working environment, with less wires and fans to distract you. Should your laptop break or be damaged, you can reduce the money you spend on replacement parts by contacting Laptop Power, who stock unbranded compatible parts and not the manufacturers’ originals, at a lower price.
