Advantages Of Desktop Computers Versus Laptops? by bimbor(m): 2:05pm On Feb 21, 2007 Does a desktop have any advantage over a laptop? Re: Advantages Of Desktop Computers Versus Laptops? by Seun(m): 9:18am On Mar 25, 2007 1) A desktop computer tends to be cheaper than a laptop computer of similar specification 2) A desktop computer is more easy to upgrade. There's more space for new PCI cards and IDE disks to fit into. 3) Faulty accesories and components on a desktop are easy to replace, sometimes without even opening the case! Re: Advantages Of Desktop Computers Versus Laptops? by cyprianjr(m): 12:23pm On Mar 25, 2007 well i think desktops are more rugged than laptops, anyway you need a lapy when you are the"browsing on the move" kinda person. Re: Advantages Of Desktop Computers Versus Laptops? by software(m): 2:58pm On Mar 25, 2007 Desktop computers do have more power than a laptop computer does.
The desktop computer has bigger monitors.
The desktop computer has more comfortable keyboards with it.
The desktop computer has a nice mouse with it.
A desktop has more nifty parts and features in it than a laptop computer can.
A desktop computer doesn't get stolen very much compared to a laptop computer.

Re: Advantages Of Desktop Computers Versus Laptops? by otokx(m): 3:43pm On Mar 25, 2007 How about the NEPA factor?

How about the NEPA factor?
Get a UPS for it then, or an inverter, that will make it stay like a lappy. They've said it all. Desktop ar better dan lappy. Re: Advantages Of Desktop Computers Versus Laptops? by dtw_sola(m): 7:52pm On Mar 25, 2007 How about performance. Notebook computers have always lagged in that area. Desktop computers have more transistors = more heat = faster performance. It isn't practical for laptops to use the advanced processors, video cards and ram that are used in desktops because 1. battery technology is
just not up to task, and 2. there is not enough air flow in a laptop to dissipate the heat generated from additional transistors . In other words, laptops are hindered in their performance by the need for portability. Also I have a 22" monitor with my desktop, and I can go as large as I want. Anything above 15" looks silly with a laptop.
Of course, you won't value the performance difference unless you are a computer enthusiast i.e. a gamer/power user. Hence most people would prefer a laptop.I do value the difference, and only use the laptop when I don't have access to a more powerful desktop. Re: Advantages Of Desktop Computers Versus Laptops? by Bossman(m): 3:02am On Mar 26, 2007 Okay, the desktop has all those advantages. But the major advantage a laptop has is the mobility factor. I saw someone mention monitor, mouse, etc. common people! we are talking about a laptop here. You cannot even compare them, considering the mobility advantage of a laptop. I am surfing the net using my laptop on my train ride (just like about 30% of the others on the train) in and out of downtown Chicago. On my last cruise, I was sending pictures I took as soon as we got on the ship from the balcony of my cabin as we to the western Caribbean, on the plane, at airports,...
