Laptops and tablets may be the “in” thing to buy these days, but that doesn’t mean they are really the best tool for the job. For a long time, many have predicted the end of the desktop computer as we know it, but the end is nowhere in sight.

Why do you ask? It’s quite simple really. Sometimes, a desktop computer just makes more sense. At the same time, there are many reasons why you should be buying a desktop instead of a laptop or tablet.

Today, I wanted to focus on a few reasons to buy a desktop, so you can all see that the desktop isn’t dead yet and there are still many reasons why you should be buying a desktop instead of a laptop. So shall we begin? Great! Check out this list below

1. More affordable

All you have to do is spend about five minutes browsing the web for new systems and you will realize how much you will save when you buy a desktop over a laptop. The fact is, you pay a premium for portability.

2. Better screen size

While you can add a monitor to a laptop, without a docking station it can be a pain and you may be limited on the type of monitor you can buy.

This, of course, means an added cost if you are a laptop owner. However, if you use a desktop, especially one with a dedicated graphics card, chances are you will have access to multiple types of connectors that will allow you to connect a monitor of almost any size to it with ease.

3. More powerful

Not only are desktops more affordable than laptops, they also pack into them some of the most powerful and most advanced hardware out there today.

All the companies still make their processors, boards and video cards for desktops first, meaning you will have access to the latest hardware much faster if you use a desktop.

Not only that, but because of the flexibility of a desktop, you will be able to perform the upgrades you need to stay current

4. Easier to repair

Sometimes you have problems with your computer. In fact, all of us at one time or another will have to have our machines fixed. If failing hardware is to blame, you can bet that fixing a desktop will be much easier and much cheaper to do.

That’s because you can source parts from almost anywhere and you won’t have to get something straight from your manufacturer as you do with a laptop.

You may even be able to make the repairs yourself since the case is so easy to get into, and this could potentially save you a great deal of money since you won’t have to take it into the shop for repair.

If you want to save money later on repairs if something bad does happen, then a desktop is definitely the way to go. You will get it repaired faster and cheaper compared to a laptop, and there is no denying this fact.

5. better sitting posture

How many times have you found yourself hunched over your laptop trying to work or even play? Sitting hunched forward on your laptop is not good for you.

If you want problems with your back and even your wrists, use a laptop for long periods of time. If you want something that is more comfortable to use, especially for those really long sessions in front of a computer, a desktop is the better option.

With the right desk and chair, you will be able to sit comfortably for hours without putting a strain on your back and arms, and no matter how old you are, I’m living proof that this is a good thing.
