For some years now, I still prefer to use a desktop over a laptop. Perhaps a lot of it is due to the fact that I am not a mobile person meaning I would prefer to stay in one secluded place to work rather than carry a notebook and find places such as Starbucks or any socially populated place where I can work as I wish. Sad to say, I prefer to be pinned to one place with no one to bother me.
This reasoning will surely draw a lot of criticism. For one, desktops are bulky (although there has been a lot of modified designs these days), making it impractical to transfer or bring along wherever you may be. The choice of whether you want to use a desktop or laptop hence depends on the nature of your work. If you are the blogger or programmer, you would want to have a desktop in one place where you can just sit down, focus and do your work.
Laptops on the other hand are for the mobile executives. Normally you would see people in sales or executives who rarely stay in the office as having them. They are not the type who will use a computer to do programming or even graphics designing. They need these laptops to aid them in presentations or even in receiving and sending email.
So as far as determining on which you would want, donâ€™t just consider the price. Be practical and select the one that suits your needs. It is all about defining what you really need as far as computers are concerned.
