Tips to Help Residents of Our Apartments Choose Between a Desktop or Laptop Computer

There are many options today for new computers, so before making the final decision it’s important to weigh those options. One of the first decisions to make is whether to purchase a desktop computer or a laptop computer.
Here are the questions to ask when determining whether a desktop or laptop computer is the right choice:

  • Where will the computer be used the most? If there is a desk or office that will be the primary location for the computer, then a desktop computer could be the right choice. A desktop has a separate CPU and monitor, and typically has a larger screen than a laptop, making it ideal for using on a desk. However, if the intention is for the computer to be used in multiple rooms of the house, or even outside the home, then a portable laptop computer would be the right choice.

  • What will the computer be used for? If the computer will be running large software programs such as video editing programs or complex video games, then a desktop may be preferable because they tend to have higher processing power, allowing these programs to run smoothly. If the computer will be used mostly for word processing and browsing the Internet, then a laptop computer should have the power to accomplish these tasks just fine.

  • How long do you want to keep the computer? If the intention is to invest in a computer that can last for many years into the future, a desktop might be a better choice, especially because many components, such as storage space and RAM speed, can be upgraded for a fraction of the cost of buying a new computer. For someone who likes to upgrade his or her computer every few years, a laptop is preferable because there are always new features being added to these machines.

By asking these questions, apartment residents can make a more informed decision about whether a desktop or a laptop computer will work best for their needs.
