Why Get A Desktop Computer

By Casper Vivianodeni

Nowadays, there are waves of gadgets that come out every month from different competing companies. The average consumer has hundreds of choices on what laptop, cellular phone or tablet to buy. Mobile gadgets have become essential to the lifestyle of many people in developed and developing countries alike. Though these gadgets have their own advantages none of them can totally replace the role of the desktop pc. Here are some of the functions of the desktop computers that still make the pc a vital home or office companion.

They can be very affordable

Laptops come in many prices depending on the model, brand and specs but the pc are generally more affordable than laptops that are of equal specs. Most low priced netbooks are only good for surfing the net because they don’t have big memory for a significant amount of files.

PC’s generally have higher memories

Though there are laptops that have considerably high memory, they are mostly more expensive than desktop computers. You don’t have to be computer savvy to know why it is better to have higher memory. If you deal with heavy files such as videos, and software, the importance of extra memory cannot be stressed enough. If you have the habit of hoarding files and keeping a lot of data for the future, having a desktop computer is considerably less expensive than buying a laptop and an external drive.

Flexibility with upgrades

With the desktop pc, you can easily upgrade its parts depending on your needs and preferences. If you work with editing videos and pictures you may want to have an extra large screen for viewing the important details. You cannot do this with a laptop alone. Having separate parts make installing of hardware easier. Sure you can do this with a laptop too, but you will have two keyboards in front of the screen.

Repairs are easier with replaceable parts

If any part of the desktop computer is damaged or is malfunctioning, you can easily detach that part and replace it. You can use parts from second hand computers or just replace it with a newer hardware. If your budget is limited, there are some shops that sell parts of second hand computers.
