					Desktop VS Laptop
Though both are personal computers; desktop and laptops are designed for
two different purposes. Desktop as the name suggests is placed over
desks. It is not a portable device. It has to have a definite position.
The desktop is larger in size and has three different components that
combine together to make it complete i.e.: the Monitor, C.P.U, and
keyboard. Without one of them the desktop PC is incomplete and useless.
Though in the superficial description of the two, laptops seem to be an
all time better option, it is necessary to know they have their own
disadvantages too.
Desktops since is complete only with its three components together,
implies that they are different. Therefore you can choose each of them
separately. Generally the pre-determined/ branded desktops do not give
the best of each of its components. However here you can choose the best
configuration for your desktop yourself and combine them to give you a
magnificent end product. In the same way, if there arises any problem
with a particular part of the computer, it can be replaced or changed
individually. Desktops are better at performance and boast higher
capacity than laptops.
Laptops do not offer such wide configuration options to choose from. In
newer models, the options for customizing your configuration would be
narrower. Though in laptops there are a thousand models to choose from,
choice in desktops would always surpass laptop options. In terms of
performance and its hardware capacity, you cannot avail a 10,000 rpm hard
disk or a 21 inch monitor like you can in desktops.
Desktops have higher expansion options than laptops. The expansion slots
in them allow you to add new hardware to the device. Technology in its
effort to bring laptops in par with desktops has included PC card slots.
However they still lag behind. Most desktop PCs have multiple upgrade
options available to them; memory, hard disk and processor upgrades can
be easily done at low cost. In contrast, despite improvements, laptops
have few upgrade options.
When comparing the prices, desktop computers have always been cheaper
than laptops for comparable performance and features.
Though laptops lag behind technologically, they let you take your PC with
you. They let you do your work anywhere you carry it along. Be it office,
home or while traveling. Even in terms of power consumption laptops are
better than desktops. Laptops are best to serve the purpose it is
designed for. No matter how advanced desktop computers are each has its
own purpose and each serves it best. It is only the incredible urge for
better that underestimates laptops.
We would suggest that the computers of reputed brands should be only
bought from well known computer store There you can get a warranty
against any manufacturing and material defects, so that you can claim
your due when required. Moreover the branded computer store can provide
you the best deal in a computer purchase.
