The Whole PC in Only a Fraction of the Space
Having a desktop computer set up takes a significant amount of space. The computer itself is bulky, heavy; although the weight of a screen for one isn’t much, it needs quite a bit of desk space since most have a general screen size of 20″ or bigger. Along with that, you will need more space for a keyboard, mouse and speakers. Therefore, it is a good idea to consider choosing a laptop rather than a desktop. Here are five reason to buy one.
Laptops are fully portable and smaller than desktops. Without the need of a desk to set it on, a laptop can be taken anywhere and used for work, gaming, watching a movie, video, etc. Having a portable computer is also a great idea for college students for they can easily take one with them to their dorm rooms.
- No Need for a Constant Power Source
With a laptop being a battery powered computer, you do not need to have the power cord plugged in all the time. Laptop batteries last long enough for you to be able to go out to a restaurant or anywhere, work while you are out, and get back home or work without having to worry. You may have to pay an expensive price, but the batteries in certain laptops can last for about half a day or longer!
- More Space
With the whole computer, screen, keyboard, and mouse wrapped up into a single unit, laptops use only a small fraction of the space a full desktop set up uses. The only additional desk space necessary would be if what you did needed an actual mouse rather than just the touchpad of laptops. With all the additional space of having a laptop, you could easily have more room for work, school, or other useful things on your desk.
- Online Interaction with Family and Friends from Anywhere
Having a desktop replacement laptop will allow for you to keep in touch with family and friends while on the go. No matter where you are, with a laptop the only thing needed is to be in a Wi-Fi enabled area (such as a hotel) and you can e-mail, instant message, or video call (with laptops with integrated webcams or with an external webcam) whomever you wish.
- Laptops can be turned into Desktops.
If the need or desire arises, a laptop can become a desktop. Simply hook it up to a desktop computer screen and you are ready. A mouse, keyboard, and sound system can also be connected, making a laptop no different in use than a desk top. Being able to do this means when at home you can use a laptop as a desktop. However, when you need to be away at work, school, etc. simply unhook the externals from the laptop. Pick up the power cable if necessary, and you will have a fully functional computer to take with you.
