When you’re ready to start up your college year, there are some items that you’re just going to need, such as a laptop or a desktop. You’re going to find that if you don’t have an item such as these, it’s going to be awfully hard to get things done in your class.
Now, if you haven’t purchased a computer yet, or you’re thinking about buying one, you’re probably wondering which one is going to work out the best for you. Both laptops, as well as desktops are going to have their advantages, as well as disadvantages.
Let’s take a look at which one is going to work the best for you.
The Desktop Computer
- It’s going to generally be more powerful. You can choose from a lot more options.
- The price tag on a desktop in today’s world is generally a lot cheaper than a laptop. You’re generally going to get more for your money.
- You can hook up dual monitors and get bigger screenage, even though you can hook your laptop and make it run like a laptop.
- You don’t have to really worry about it being stolen.
- It’s less likely to be dropped or become damaged, since you won’t be moving it around as much.
- You can’t take it to class. Many people love to take their laptop in the library or even class to take notes.
- These desktops are going to take up a lot more space in your dorm room.
- If you want to lug it around, it’s going to be harder to bring it home when you do come home.
- The laptop computer
- It’s great to bring to class. Since it’s going to be easy to port around, you can take it to the park, library, and more.
- Grab a smart phone and get Internet access just about anywhere. Take advantage of the free WiFi.
- You can do just as much on a laptop, as you can on a desktop.
- Pick up some monitors and you can turn your laptop into a full blown desktop computer.
- Laptops generally are going to cost you a little more money and you will find that you can’t get as much.
- When you bring it out in public, you will have to worry about its safety. You’re more than likely bound to lose it.
- You can easily drop it and if its dropped, you can kiss $500+ goodbye.
- I’ve also found that a laptop can be a huge distraction if you’re using it during class.
