If you are planning to buy tour own computer any time soon but you are still not sure on which type you would buy; laptop or desktop, here are the things that you should consider first to help you make the right decision.

If you are the type of person who is always on-the-go, then you probably need a laptop. Laptops are more suitable for people who are always going outside their house and an example of which are businessmen. Businessmen often need to go to business trips and take important files with them.

But if you are the type of person who is just always at home, you should just purchase a desktop computer instead. Not only desktop computers are more affordable than laptops but they are also more reliable and durable as compared to laptops.

If you have any space constraints but you still need to have a desktop computer, consider purchasing “slim-line” desktop computers. Also, you should consider purchasing an LCD monitor instead of the CRT one.

Laptops are more expensive as compared to desktop not to mention that they also more frequently being brought to repair shops as compared to desktops.

But then again, you have to weigh things first before you even make a decision.
