Don’t you know that laptops were originally made for the use of specialized fields only? These fields include the military people, accountants and sales representatives. But as time passed by, the market for laptops has enlarged to great deals that even the manufacturers have not expected. Many people had sold their old desktop computers to buy a new laptop. Here are 3 reasons why these people switch from desktop computers to laptops.
Laptops can be used anytime and anywhere. Its portability allows it to be carried easily. It does not allow time to be wasted because you can use it in places where a desktop computer cannot be used, like during commuting in trains and during flights. If you are a college student, who is making a project with the computer and would like to have a change in ambiance, taking your laptop out in the park or the outside bench is no hassle at all. Can you imagine how hard it will be to transfer your desktop computer outside your house and then putting it back inside your house after you use it? Laptops can also easily connect to wireless internet connections. So searching information anywhere in your house or in your campus can be done almost immediately.
Because of its all-in one package, laptops take little space on a desk at home. The monitor, keyboard, speakers, mouse and CPU are all in one machine, which can be as small as 10 x 8 inches and as big as 17 x 12 inches in length and width. Also, because of its size, its cooling system, e.g. fan is small and tends to be quieter than a desktop computer. So, using it in a shared room, while your roommate is asleep is no problem at all.
Laptops also utilize minimal power consumption because it can be powered mostly by rechargeable battery. Once it is charged, the AC adapter can be removed and the laptop can be used for an approximate average of 4 to 6 hours. There are some laptops that use specialized batteries that can stand for about 11 hours without AC power. So, for those who want lesser electric charges, laptops are perfect for you. Laptops are also very useful when the power is out. Just make sure that it is charged and do not let it be drained up to 0% because it decreases battery life.
Desktop computers are useful if you are a homey person and does not mind having more space taken up in your desk. But for those who are on-the-go, those who do not want to waste time and those who would like to save on the electric bill, laptops are the ones that are meant for you.
