Best Answer
Then a desktop is the best choice. They are
* Cheaper to buy
* Easier to repair. All of the components are replaceable (or at least serviceable)
* Easier to upgrade. (see above)
* Don't depend on a single LCD flat panel screen.
* Can be faster for the same $$.
* There is no battery to worry about, unless you use a UPS (I have one on all of my desktops)
* Can have the same hard drive and processor as a laptop or more drives.

    If you have no need for mobility then a desktop is your best option. You can buy a lot more computer for the money with a desktop and desktops are easier to upgrade later on (laptops are difficult, and in some cases impossible to upgrade).

    Hi, well there r many advantages of a desktop computer to a laptop in a shop.

    1. Desktops r more powerful in terms of hardware.
    2. They have a larger screen generally and that makes it easier to read.
    3. They have more area for usage meaning like a desktop has a mouse whereas on a laptop u have a touch pad which is not very comfortable at all.
    4. Desktops r also cheaper than laptops usually even though Desktops may have better hardware than laptops.

    I would suggest that if money is not a problem then u buy an iMac.

    I hope I helped.

    Good Luck and take care!

    The main advantages for you of using a desktop over a laptop will be that you will be able to position the base unit away from the monitor, meaning you can save desk space, you may want to have the monitor on a stand and just have the keyboard below the desk or hidden away until you need to use it. You will also be able to choose what size monitor you would like, as you may want larger than the standard 15.4" or 17" that laptops have. There is also the advantage of upgradability, with a desktop you are able to upgrade much more easily, and have more options available to you, as well as upgrading a bit at a time, where as there arent really that many upgrades that can be easily done on a laptop. finally there is the advantage of getting a much faster desktop computer than for the same priced laptop.

    In this case the advantage will be savings. The desktops are generally cheaper than a similar laptop. Another advantage is that desktops are typically easier to upgrade if needed. Also desktops are always plugged into a power source so you don't have to worry about the battery running out.

    Faster for less $
    Don't have to worry about all your business information being stolen at the airport etc...

    A desktop is a smarter choice in my opinion since it's easier to repair without sending the unit somewhere and shutting down your business. etc...
