After talking about the pros and cons of laptops and desktop, we can say that a desktop should be preferred over a laptop if one has to go for a high –end customization and heavy software. Laptops are efficient only if you have a light work to do or you travel often. Even for gaming, a laptop could be of the same configuration as a desktop, but is expensive and is difficult to upgrade further. Laptops can’t be upgraded or repaired at home as many of them are very sensitive in nature. If it consumes less space, it lacks on hardware, ram etc. There are really no limitations to the ad on of a desktop like keyboard, mouse, fans or anything and everything.
For engineers or any professional who has to work on a high-end PC, Desktops are highly recommended.
If you want to run the heavy software and high – end hardware, Desktops are the best choice because they not only can be upgraded easily and whenever you like, but does not crash as much. Spending your money on an expensive laptop and then getting it changed after a few years is not worth the money or the time unless portability is your priority. So, Desktop is the choice for you.
