performance - desktop

portable - smaller desktop

I'm partial to desktops. I really can't stand laptops at all. They're for business people. The computer market has pretended to invent lots of purposes for them that don't exist. For example: College students need a laptop so they can 'take notes in class.' This is the lamest thing I've ever heard. I'm in college, and shake my head at kids that bring computers to class.

Vote goes to Desktop

Desktops, basically anything can be upgradeable.......... except for dell. The laptops really arent for gaming like desktops are. The only games I played on my old laptop was mmorpg.

Oh how could I forget the laptops are more exspensive in price. Desktops are good budgets. I would only go with a laptop for business like the one guy said. Having a laptop is cool though I liked it when I had mine, then I became a gamer and ebayed my laptop
