Transport.

As a student for me the most important things is to easily transport my PC, wherever I go, that's why I pick laptops. Of course if you don't really have to travel or move around much, a desktop is the better choice, because for rendering work or gaming it won't cool that much and it's way easier to upgrade it than a laptop. Desktops have countless advantages, but they can't be moved around, which is a huge minus by itself.

Lightweight and convenient

I have both laptop and desktop at home. For watching movies or playing games, I use desktop because the processor speed and heating fan help to reduce the heat and system hang problems.

However, I use laptop most of the time since I am constantly blogging online to earn money. When I am outside or on vacation, I bring along my laptop since it is light weight, very convenient to bring in my backpack. I can use the laptop battery if there isn't any socket wall available. Laptop does not hang easily as long as I do not use heavily . I don't need any upgrades , saving cost on spare parts or accessories. Furthermore, laptop is WIFI accessible at shopping mall. Very convenient to complete my blogging task when I am free.

Small and easy to carry

I'm still a student and while it is obvious laptops will always be less powerful and not the ideal type of device for gaming and heavy tasks, they are easy to carry and for a student it is great. I also will use a laptop instead of a desktop when I'm tired and I just want to read something or browse the internet in bed. I've only used desktops for big presentations and things like that, and most of the times my back hurt because desktop don't really allow a comfortable position, unless you buy a really expensive ergonomic chair.

Love to use laptop.

I had been used desktop first on 1993 and had been used laptop first on 2008. It was a project work from UNDP to over the nationwide to do National Identity card and Facilitation the Issuance of National Identity Development project for one year. It was a project to make national identity card and I had been used first a Dell laptop. After that every year I had been taken one laptop and HP is my best laptop.

Laptops all the way

I'm writing this with my laptop whilst sitting on my couch. It's just so much easier to use because they are extremely light and convenient to carry around. With a desktop, you can only really use it in one place and it usually has to be on a table meaning your chair might get uncomfortable after a while. With a laptop, you can use it absolutely anywhere and you can even take it to work or school if you have to.

Working on the Go

I am a person who likes to bring work wherever I go. I can work on my bed, at the couch, work in the office, at a coffee shop, or at my girlfriend's house. The device that allows me to do that is my trusty laptop.

I have been using my HP laptop for years. And even though it is now a bit slow, it is still very useful. It is probably the device I use the most. I don't usually use a desktop nowadays. I know that a desktop is much more powerful, which is better when it comes to gaming, and also when it comes to multitasking when doing some process-heavy tasks like video editing plus picture editing plus designing layouts and such. But still, using my laptop is the most convenient.

I would choose a laptop over a desktop computer any day.

Laptops

I am someone that likes working or studying outside from time to time, so having a laptop is essential for me. I can bring my work with me wherever I go and even when I'm in my own home, I can use my laptop wherever I wish. For example, sometimes, I prefer studying while lying on my bed which I would not be able to do with a desktop.

Team Laptop

I have both a desktop and laptop but I reach for my laptop more because I am not at home (where my desktop) is.

With a laptop it is more portable, versatile, light weight and can be brought everywhere you go and be used.

The only down side about a laptop is that my laptop gets hot easily (it is a couple years ago) but a simple solution is to bring my laptop fan and that cools down the laptop significantly.

Laptop is Better

I love keeping something with me which I can take anywhere. So you can see that laptop is lot better in that context. You can see that people who prefer to use the laptop have more accessibility. That does not seem to be the case with the desktop. But only issue with laptop is some of the time RAM can't be upgraded.

I stopped using the desktop since a very long time. I prefer to use the laptop for many reasons. I can easily carry it with me wherever I go and can complete my works no matter where I am. I do not necessarily need to be at home or in the office. Moreover, I can easily connect to an available WiFi network. Desktops are not wireless.

Portable option-Laptop

The main feature I do like about the laptops,is that I can take them anywhere I go and I dont need to plug in to an electric source.Of course,they dont work on solar energy,but charging the battery is more in-handy for travelling. For gaming,they might not be the best,but still reliable:)

Easy Mobility

The laptop is the best anytime anywhere.For more than 7years now I haven't used desktop simply because I don't see any reason to, the laptop can perform almost everything it can offer and has many advantages over the desktop. It can easily be taken from one place to another, unlike the Desktop that is very heavy to carry. I think this is a powerful revolution, we started from the first generation of the computer which is as big as the size of a room but now it has been transformed into something which is smaller you can move about. The percentage of people who make use of the laptop on a daily basis is more than those who use the desktop.

Laptop for Life

I've been a laptop user for so many years now, I hardly remember the last time I owned a desktop. The portability has of course been a big reason. Also, when my old desktop was going caput years ago, it was a less expensive option to get a laptop, so that's where it started for me. Over the years, I've had a few laptops, which goes to show that they don't always last as long as I'd like, but in general they work pretty well for the things I use a computer for. It's also been great to be able to transport it around as I need, especially while I was going to college. Currently however, my laptop is more like a desktop because it has sadly lost its mobility. The screen has gone out on it, so I use it connected to a TV screen. Its extending the life of it without having to pay a couple hundred to fix it, but at the expense of being able to use wherever I like... which just reminds me how more convenient a laptop is verses a desktop.

Laptops!

The fact that you can move around with it it's just an extra plus to the laptop. You are not stick to a desk and you can adopt different positions with it, did you get bored in the desk? you can go sit on the couch and there's no problem. So the point is on laptops for its portability.

The right one.

There is no doubt that both options are great and extremely useful.

However, mainly because of the practicality (and sometimes because of the prices ) that laptops offer (not to mention the economy of physical space), they end up becoming the best and wise choices.

Laptop for Laps

My perception about these two is based upon a quite simple understanding of these two computer types as a whole. One is convenient to move around, could be taken with you in a bag other isn't travel-friendly. Well for guys like who are quite lazy and want to spend a lot of time in front of the PC screen, the laptop is the best bet whether on a table or on a lap in bed.

Mobility.

This is really a mater of where you are at life. If you're a person who has to travel a lot, for example a student, or a someone working a job that requires travelling. The obvious choice is picking a laptop. However if you'd want to cover some overwhelming cases, such as heavy gaming, streaming and rendering with different video editing softwares, desktop would be the right choice. Desktops are also way easier to upgrade and to clean and so on. However in modern times more expensive laptops are actually beasts and they can do quite the satisfying work.

Practical

Laptops are way more practical than desktops. I had a PC a few years ago and it was okay, I had a few issues with it often and I got tired of it. Because of this, I decided to get a laptop like three years ago and I've been using it since then with no issues. Desktops are okay if you work in an office but at home it's not a good option for me.

Laptop

I use my laptop as a personal thing of my own. Like my android phone, I can carry it at my work and do things both personal and business stuffs. I think laptops can be upgraded now in a modern system through internet updates so a desktop in order to be upgraded is to replace its hardware is a thing of the past now. But again, I'm no expert tee hee. If you are loaded anyway, buy the most highend laptop already. I have many little nephews and nieces that use my laptop so it's easy for me to teach them how to set up and turn off the laptop without worrying they will glitch the computer if wrecklessly switched off.

While I love desktops for the power they have, laptops take the cake. They are as versatile as you need them to be: you can take them anywhere, giving them even more purpose than desktops.

I prefer a laptop because it's more convenient nad more comfortable to do my work on a laptop. I can carry it with me anywhere I go . I just put it in my backpack and when I arrive to my destination I just pull it out and I'm ready. And these days laptops are very powerful, you can run even some high powered programs. Even high-end games. I think that laptops will replace desktops in the near future

If you own a laptop, it is easy to bring anywhere because it is small unlike computers that needs system units, avr and especially plug-in.

Power and Upgradability

I love my laptop and its portability. It's gotten me through some tough situations where I've needed to travel and edit video/photos on the go, and it's always going to be one of my essential travel items.

But I absolutely had to choose, I'd say a desktop because they're generally more powerful than a laptop, and you have the option of upgrading parts of it when the times comes, which I think is a huge feature of them. I find myself doing most of my work on a desktop, so in general, it's of more use to me than laptop is.

Plus desktops make it easy to have a dual monitor setup, or even a larger monitor than a laptop will allow.

The best for my needs!

I have always preferred desktop computers. I purchased a laptop years ago but I honestly never used it. I mainly just use my desktop or my smartphone for doing different tasks or browsing the internet.

Since I love to play different games, the desktop is the perfect fit for me. It runs all of the games amazingly, it is less expensive if you build the computer yourself and best of all? It has a nice big monitor.

I know that some people love their laptops but it just isn't for me.

Power over portability.

I may be old fashioned but I would never take portability if it meant sacrificing power. Desktops will always be ahead of laptops in that respect. There's rarely a portability need that my hand-held devices cannot fulfill when I cannot get to my keyboard anyway. Before smart phones, laptops seemed like the best innovation ever. Now, I feel like they're trying to fix a problem very few people have outside of a corporate environment where you're traveling a lot.

I like more the desktops computers even though you can't have all the parts in one whole machine, I like the structure and the fact that all the parts are separate because if one of them is damaged or stops working you can always buy another one and replace the part; but with the laptops you'll have to take your entire "world" to the tech guys to get it repair.

I have both a laptop and a desktop at home, and I haven't used my laptop in weeks, maybe even months! Why? Because I get so frustrated to sit there for 5 minutes, waiting for my laptop to boot up! My desktop is unbelievably quick, and the weird thing is: It costed me less than the laptop! Sure, there are of course laptops that are just as quick as desktops, and with the advantage of being portable, but they're expensive as hell! I'd much rather sacrifice my mobility while I'm working with a computer than just waiting around for my slow laptop to load things.

Laptops have too many disadvantages compared to de

I will definitely go for desktops. I used to like laptops but it's such a pain in the butt when a laptop starts having problems. It's very expensive to get a laptop repaired and sometimes to only option is to replace it. I've had this experience with a laptop a few times before and it's such a bummer. It's nice to be able to bring your computer anywhere and a laptop looks really but there's just too much disadvantage of owning one. It's hard to get it repaired and have it upgraded. Laptop parts are too expensive and they have more compatibility issues compared to desktops. Laptops get hot faster which causes your equipment to hang. It sucks when you're playing a game and your laptop gets hot and it suddenly hangs. That's not the case with a desktop. A desktop is so much cheaper and you can assemble a high end computer at the price of an entry level laptop. A desktop's parts can be replace easier and you can get them at a low price. A desktop is more robust and last longer compared to a laptop. There's a lot more room to upgrade a desktop. It's easier to play high end games with a desktop because you don't have to shell out a huge amount of money to get a decent gaming machine. If you want to buy a gaming laptop, expect to spend a fortune. Only rich people can afford such gaming laptops. If you want to play games and be mobile at the same time, you can opt for an android or IOS game. Mobile games nowadays are getting better and more sophisticated. You don't have to bring a huge laptop to be able to enjoy games with great graphics. You can just use your phone. That should keep you entertained while you're outside of your house.

Well, if you ask me, it all depends on what kind of life style you have. For example, a student at a university will probably find a laptop more convenient than a computer on the simple fact of mobility. However, if you're a Gamer, you'll most likely favor desktops in this scenario. Like you also said, laptops parts aren't the easiest to remove and some aren't removable at all! With a PC, usually you have to piece it together, but the benefit is that you can build your machine from the ground-up! So when it comes to this comparison, I really can't choose nor recommend. It all depends on what your reasons are for.

We had 3 computers already and they are all desktops. In the office, it's also desktop that I was using. But I was lucky to be issued a laptop 3 years ago for my official computer. With that, I had the insight that laptop is best for its portability. The only downside is the track pad which is difficult for me to handle. However, I am using a corded mouse for that which is convenient for me. Early this month, we purchased our very first laptop. And although the installed software are not yet complete, we are already using it for the internet and for some simple programs.

Laptops are more comfortable than desktop nowadays . This is because all the components parts are joined together unlike in desktop where all the component part are separated, thereby requiring wires or cable to be used to connect them together. Laptop is more preferable in our present time because it is more lighter than that of desktop.It is also more preferable than desktop because it more mobile, that is you can carry it along with you where ever you are going and you can start your computing work and thereby finishing your work on time.

I believe the laptops are more expensive the higher the specifications they have, but they are convenient for their portability as it can be used around the house or be brought anywhere outside.

Well I haven't used a desktop in ages as a computer that I would work on as much as I have been doing on a laptop for the past 5 years or so. I've built several servers and these are towers designed specifically for that purpose. I have been thinking lately about reinstating a desktop computer to share some of the workload on my laptop. I have found that laptops have been very convenient as from time to time I have to work in different areas and some times on very short notice. It almost sounds as if I need a second laptop! The jury is still out but I will definitely be requiring server power this time around and for this purpose I will implementing a desktop tower power to accomplish this task.

Laptop seem to be better option on many levels. I have found that desktop can be limiting in many ways. You can see that some of the time desktop has it's set of issues. You'd see how they can be difficult to move. And if you don't have the resources then that can be something to consider as well. In the due process you have to focus on the laptop. I have found that desktops are good for the office mostly.

I currently use laptop, and In my opinion laptop seems more efficient to use than desktop. I guess the desktop might outdated, or maybe it's already outdated. Laptop becomes more popular as every individual prefer this one to carry everywhere. Regarding to the specs; laptop has more specs upgrading in recent years and many years to come. It seems that one day desktop will die off, or it will upgrade by competitive company like apple.

It really depends on what do you want to do in a specific situation like if you just want to stream or browse the internet on your bed or in cafes then laptop is the better choice for you because of the portability, if you are into gaming then desktop would be the better choice because it has more power than the laptop.

I don't tinker with my electronics all that much so having a desktop isn't of that much use to me, considering one of the great benefits of it is being able to swap out parts and upgrade them instead of having to chuck out the whole machine when it becomes updated. I am definitely a lot more partial to laptops, because they are easy to use and to transport. The only thing I don't like about them is that they are not as powerful as desktops, so I find myself having to limit my installations of programs, even if my laptop is fairly high in terms of specs. Someday I will probably switch back to desktops again and start to learn to build them but for now I'm satisfied with just using a laptop.

I have both. Since it's quite expensive to buy laptops that are powerful enough for my video and graphics projects, I bought a basic, entry level laptop that I can use for browsing, research, and writing anywhere. I use the desktop only when I need to work on a video, photo, or animation, and when I'm in the mood to play high end games. Laptops have lower power consumption than desktops so I can use it for hours without worrying about electricity consumption.

In some ways there are advantages and disadvantages in both. I particularly prefer to use laptops simply because of the mobility factor. But on the other hand, desktops are easier to maintain and are even cheaper (at least here in my country). Desktops also tend to be better for games and use of very robust software, as it is possible to make use of off-board video cards and this is a great differential.

First of all the first big advantage of a notebook over a desktop is portability. Because it is small and light, the notebook can be transported (such as carrying the notebook) anywhere, anytime. In addition, its power is made by cables or by battery. This means that if you do not have the power available to use your notebook, you can continue to use it through the battery.

Another undeniable advantage is the size. If you're used to using desktops, you'll probably feel the difference right away when using a notebook: it will look strange. However, after a few hours of use you will realize the advantage of having an efficient and smaller computer in your hands.

You are right with the advantage of portability. But take note that serious computer users who have their office in their homes use high quality desktops. Admittedly the desktops are more convenient to use especially the software that you can install on it unlike in laptops that are choosy with the application. However, I have to admit that laptops are convenient when you are outdoors.

I prefer the laptops than the desktops. Its so easy to use and bring anywhere you want it. Desktops can only be accessed in offices and homes. You can use the laptop even when you are on board the airplane.
