Default The Laptop Advantage

Hi

First of all, you shouldn't even be considering a laptop unless you truly need the portability. After all, portability is the only feature laptops have over desktops. Ask yourself: where am I going to use this laptop other than at my desk? Here are some possibilities:

* You need a computer while traveling
* You need to use the same PC at home and at work
* You need to use your computer in meetings
* You are a student, and you want to take it to the library or classroom

In your decision about whether you need portability, take into account that laptops are NOT feathers. They weigh a few pounds, and can be slightly cumbersome to carry around, when you include cables, power supply, extra storage drives, etc.

Keep sharing and reading
Thanks

I agree. For my purposes the portability wins hands down.
