A laptop is better or a desktop?

  1. 1. By David Rowe,
  2. 2. Never compare the two.. There is no one word answer for this question: which is better, a laptop or a desktop? Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages, and it totally depends on what your work requirements are. So you must have a clear picture about your needs and preferences before you buy a laptop or a desktop. It is highly recommended to do a thorough market research on all the models - based on your preferences. Then it will be pretty easy for you to choose the system that suits your needs and budget.
  3. 3. Let your needs define your system In this presentation I have compared the major features of each system and discussed some of the pros and cons of it. And I hope this will definitely help you take a more informed decision in choosing the right system for you. First and foremost, you must be crystal clear about the objective of buying the system, whether you need it for your personal use or for official purpose.
  4. 4. Let your needs define your system If you want to use it for personal use, that is checking emails, play some games or chatting, then a basic system will suffice you, and there is no need to go in for a pricey, high end one. But it has been observed that people tend to get more worried about the price factor of a system rather than meeting their requirements. So, if you are one amongst them, you will be happy to know that the price difference between a laptop and a desktop is not so vast these days. And it shouldn’t really prevent you from buying the system of your choice.
  5. 5. Benefits of a laptop If you are a person who needs to travel frequently at work, and also require working on a computer while on the move, then obviously, you should have a laptop. You can also stay well-connected to the internet on the move, check your emails or do a quick chat with your friend, due to the wide accessibility of a wireless (wi-fi) networks these days. And with a laptop, you can work from a comfortable spot in your home that you love, if you are telecommuting.
  6. 6. Benefits of a laptop But on the other hand, if you want a system that works silently without causing any disturbance - in your room, then you must go for laptops, as their cooling fans are quite calmer than a desktop system. Since Laptops come as a single unit, they are clutter – free with lesser wires, dust and cables, keeping your table look neat and clean. This is a great reason to go for a laptop especially if you want your table to be always free from clutter.
  7. 7. Short falls of a laptop Unlike the desktops, you can only have a 15” or 17” monitor on a laptop, which is one of the major short falls of it. Another disadvantage of a laptop is the absence of an efficient CPU cooling fan, because of the space constraint. This can often give rise to overheating forcing it to shutdown unusually. You won’t find that problem in desktops as they are installed with incredibly efficient CPU cooling fans.
  8. 8. Benefits of a desktop On a desktop you can work any duration you want as it is connected to your home power supply. But you don’t have that luxury on a laptop as you need to keep recharging the battery for providing continuous power supply. And you must have a live charging point available when you are on the move or the place where you choose to work; otherwise having a laptop is useless.
  9. 9. Benefits of a desktop But in case of a desktop you don’t need to worry about the power supply, unless you have long and intermittent power outages in your area. Desktops will serve you much longer than laptops as they are easily repairable and expandable, which is not the case with laptops as there is no space for adding new hardware.
  10. 10. They are built differently.. Laptops and desktops are entirely different when it comes to their hardware designs. In case of a desktop, the external peripheral devices like keyboard, mouse, speaker, monitor etc. must be connected separately to the CPU to make it function as a desktop. But in case of a laptop all of these components are combined as single unit which makes it portable and mobile. And you also have the facility to connect all of them separately on a laptop - if you want it that way.
  11. 11. Conclusion Now it is time for you to take the call. If you have prepared a list of your requirements as - mentioned in the beginning of this presentation – going through this presentation will definitely help you make the right choice without any problem.Thanks for taking your time and watching my presentation.
