There are always some DOs and DON’Ts of using a Machine and this age, the age of computers and technology have provided us with many alternatives for computers(Desktop ones). I have seen many people discussing about whether Laptops are better or Desktop Computers are better than Laptops, Well there are many reasons one should Prefer a Desktop Computer over a Laptop or Why should one Prefer a Laptop over Desktop PC. I also have written a post previously in this regard that why one should Prefer Laptop over Desktop Computers, today I thought to write-up a quick list that why Desktop PCs are Better than Laptops.
Why Desktop PCs are Better than Laptops:
10. More Options:
We use computers for not only storing data and making few calculations we use them for gaming, listening to music, scanning documents and printing documents. A Lot more ports are required for connecting more hardware like a Wireless mouse,keyboard, Printer, External Speakers, Scanner, etc(And I don’t think that you can Connect them to your Laptop). Desktop Computers Provide an advantage to us in this case by providing us more options to connect devices.
9. Easy to Repair:
Got a problem in your laptop? maybe Touchpad or keyboard got a Problem, if this happens to you I don’t think that it would be a Low cost and easy to repair. But in PC if your Keyboard is damage or mouse is broken or even your RAM goes out of its mind, you can replace it yourself at very low-cost.
Desktop Computers are Easier to maintain, you can clean them, I know that it will take a Lot of time but it would be much easier as compared to a Laptop. you can even wash Motherboard of your PC(if you know how to do that) if its dusty. You can change its components time-to-time like replacing a Mouse or keyboard each 6-12 months for your own satisfaction.
7. Larger Displays:
If you are having a Desktop Computer you can easily replace the Display Monitor if you want, or Attach multiple displays. Usually desktop computers have Much bigger Displays than a Laptop. If you are a Person who loves bigger displays (to watch movies or play games) you should go for a Desktop Computer.
6. Easier to Upgrade:
If you own a Laptop and you want to Upgrade its RAM or Graphics card you would have to take it to the Computer repair shop to upgrade it but if you own a PC you can do it yourself easily. The point here I want to make is Its lot more easier to Upgrade a Desktop PC as well as it will cost much less to upgrade a Desktop than to Upgrade a laptop due to the price of their Components.
5. Graphics and Performance:
If you are a hardcore gamer or want a Workstation Computer you will always for a Desktop PC. That’s because they offer better Performance and graphics (and larger displays) as compared to Laptops so you could work on Adobe Illustrator or Lightroom easily with faster performance as compared to laptop. The Performance of hardware of Laptops are limited to save the battery Consumption.
4. More Secure:
Laptops are more Vulnerable than Desktop Computers. Imagine that you are holding a Laptop while walking and they slip from your hand and fell down (it’s the biggest nightmare I have about laptops) or you left your laptop somewhere in office and when you came back it was not there. Now if it was desktop PC it would be much more harder to steal it because it would not fit any smaller bag or anybody could not take it out from office easily (take a Chill pill if you Own a Desktop PC).
3. Hardware Size:
Most people Prefer Laptops because they are smaller and they can take it anywhere but that is a Biggest disadvantage of a laptop, yup its Smaller size. Actually Laptops are designed to be smaller and more compact in size and so are their hardware components. Keeping this fact in mind that they are smaller, also they could not deliver better performance(unless you are having real Big budget). But Desktop Computers are a Plus Point in this Case too because their hardware is designed to deliver performance.
This is the Biggest Plus point of Desktop Computers that they are much Cheaper (not in Quality) than Laptops. Who would not love a gadget which is having latest Components in market and much cheaper in cost. You can Build a Workstation PC in Same price you would buy an Average laptop (That’s the truth).
1. Its Desktop Computer:
Last but not Least, You always Prefer a Desktop Computer over a Laptop Simply because it’s a Desktop Computer. There could be any reason for Preferring a Desktop Computer over a Laptop. Well, I prefer a Desktop computer because it got bigger Screens, Keyboard and I have a Mouse to have better control on the Cursor on-screen.
