My laptop was stolen last month. I want to buy a new computer for my work/ downloads etc. I am very confused if to buy desktop or laptop. My friends are asking me to buy laptop.But i want to buy a desktop only. I will stay in a flat/pg with lot of strangers walking around. I will relocate only once a year afterwards. Also my work does not require laptop. My reasons for choosing desktop are this 1. easy to use(big screen/keyboard) 2. safety from theft 3. more powerful and fast 3. easy upgrade/downgrade 4. somewhat portable (can be carried in a mid size suitcase) 5. almost half the price of a laptop Am i missing anything in the above list? I have not owned a desktop before. Is there a problem if i buy desktop instead of laptop? Is there any reason why i should buy laptop and not desktop? All thinkdigit gurus, help me please.
