I have a laptop and a desktop myself, and there are advantages and disadvantages of both of them. There was a time when I only had a laptop and I was not completely satisfied with it. For various reasons a person might prefer to buy a laptop rather than a desktop. That is especially the case if a person travels a lot, and would like to avoid carrying his monitor and computer case with him. Maybe even you are considering buying a laptop. However, before you buy it, you should ask yourself a few questions:
- Do you spend a lot of time in front of your computer using various applications? If so, then a desktop might be a better choice for you, since desktops are generally more powerful.
- Do you play computer games? Keep in mind that your laptop might not be able to handle newest games. That is because the best graphic cards produce so much heat that laptops cannot support them.
- Will you be happy with a smaller keyboard of a laptop? Laptops have quite small keyboards, and you may not be used to it. That might be especially the case if you have big fingers.
-Will you be comfortable while sitting in front of a laptop? You might get back pain if you plan on spending a lot of time in front of your laptop.
-Will a laptop serve as your only computer? Make sure you will not need any features that regular desktops have.
- Do you want to save a lot of space? If yes, then a laptop is an excellent choice.
As you see, every person who wants to buy a laptop should ask himself some questions. I hope that answering them will help you make the right choice.
