Introduction:If you are looking to buy a computer, and you are not sure if you should buy a laptop or not, here is a list of reasons to go for the laptop.
If you should decide to purchase a brand new desk computer, it will stay right in the spot where you first put it. You will have a nice computer, and you will be able to use it often.
However, if you decide to purchase a new laptop computer, you can easily bring it with you pretty much wherever you go. A laptop computer is very small, light, and easy to use just about anywhere. A laptop computer runs really great on battery power, and you don't even need to purchase a case. That would probably be a good idea, though.
If you purchase a new laptop computer, there are many places where you can hook up to free wifi. These places are called hot spots. You will often find free wifi available in shopping malls.
Other places where you can find free wifi would be places such as McDonalds, Tim Hortons, and Barnes and Noble. Many restaurants offer free wifi, and many hotels and motels also offer this free service.
By bringing your laptop with you to various places, you will be able to catch up on your email, connect with friends on Facebook, and even work on your business.
If you have a laptop computer, you can always bring this along with you to your relative's house. Maybe you will be going there to visit or to babysit. Whatever the reason, if they don't mind, it would be pretty awesome to use your own laptop at their house instead of using their computer.
Many people do not want others to use their computers. They don't want others to be snooping around on them or to be downloading any dangerous viruses. If you bring your own laptop and end up catching a virus on it, at least it will be on your own computer.
Of course, this is the same for your friend's house. People have a lot of valuable information on their computers that they may not want other people to see. This is true even if you are friends. Much of the things that people have on their computers are private, personal things.
If any of your friends want to share their computers with you, that's one thing. Please, though, do not expect them to want to share or be willing to share. Their computer is very important to them, as your new computer will also be very important and private to you.
When you go on vacation, you do not have to leave your computer at home. Well, certainly not if it is a laptop computer. If you only own a desk computer, it might be wise to just leave it at home. Besides, it might look strange for you to bring a desk computer along with you on any vacation.
While on vacation, with your own personal laptop, you will feel a little more at home. You can do some searching for restaurants to go out and eat at, and you can search for some fabulous sites to go out and see.
The list is endless, but the choice is yours.
Consider purchasing a laptop computer, but the choice is totally up to you.
I'm sold on laptops too. The portability's a great advantage.
Yes, a laptop is more versatile than a desktop PC. H5
I still enjoy my desk computer in my personal office at home. It is my little sanctuary. Thank you for the information about laptops. Maybe I will purchase one someday. H5!

You're right about the laptop .. mine is in front of me at least 12 hours every day, including weekends.
Great comparisons between the laptop and desk computers. Retail prices are declining for laptops so maybe I will invest in one.
