    Hello friend,

    Laptops are basically popular because of their portability and light weight, So that you can hangout with these laptops anywhere you want and do your work, but because of this factor laptops
    easily can be stolen and loose you important and valuable data and information. Although, they are designed in more trendy and attractive style, but you need to so cautious holding and carrying them because of their delicacy.

    You can buy two Desktop computers in price of a single laptop, that means laptops are more costly than desktops and have more proprietary parts which are only repaired or replaced by the brand itself and after expiring the warranty period they will charge whatever they want. Whereas desktops are easily repairable at local computer repairing shop at very affordable prices.

    Desktop computers are more accessible and comfortable to use for longer period of time. You can't work on laptops for longer time, as you start feeling uncomfortable while on desktops the sitting position and eyes distance from its monitor turns out them to be more comfortable and relaxing time so that you can spend much time with it. And of course it is worthless to go for the more expensive thing just for the sake of fashion and trend when we can do our work with desktop at faster speed and within our comfortable zone.

    Thanks...

    Bought a Toshiba new from Fry's for $300. Windows 7; 225 GB HD; 4 GB Ram; 15" Display; WiFi; WebCam; DVD Writer.

    Netbooks with capabilities just under this are sub-$400. Few Desktops that include a monitor sell for the same.

    Advantages of a desktop are definitely expandability. I can put several internal SATA drives and more options with cards, memory, etc.

    But price isn't necessarily the deciding factor these days.

    1) Laptops are less reliable than desktops.
    2) Proprietary parts need proprietary drivers or at least public specifications. Otherwise forget about drivers for Linux.
    3) In a laptop you can upgrade just RAM and HDD. On a desktop PC you can upgrade almost everything.
    4) You may buy a docking station for your laptop and connect a keyboard, a mouse and a monitor to your laptop.
    5) Bluetooth mouse and keyboard can be connected without docking station. Monitors (sadly) demand for wider data transfer channel than Bluetooth can offer, though I believe in a decade the things will change.

    Hey, I have a couple of both around. Sadly, I'm stuck with Windows for the Toshiba though. I just don't have the time for working out the settings for a Linux install given all the proprietary hardware and power management. For me, that's the biggest downfall since I can really just barely stand Windows. Still, I have a few Windows only apps that make having a laptop handy.

    But, with the portability and convenience, I really couldn't imagine not having a laptop to augment my main desktop.

    A couple of things I can think of:
    Desktops have superior airflow, therefore they run at lower temperatures; extending lifespan and stability. Laptops that come with a dedicated GPU tend to have an awful battery life. I bought Toshiba P200 1EE a few years back, great laptop - terrible battery life, its lasts for about 20 minutes from a fully charged battery.
    Also, I don't like the fact that the majority of laptop manufacturers use glossy screens, it makes them virtually impossible to see when the sun is out.
