Desktop vs. Laptop. What Works Best for Your Business?

 

Purchasing computers for your business can be a tough decision to make. There are a lot of factors that influence your choice and what will make the most sense for your business.

Cost is obviously a thing to consider, and traditionally laptops have been more expensive than desktops, but that has changed in recent years. Now, you can find a laptop that may be the same price or lower than a desktop.

You also want to consider the nature of your work. If your employees are out of the office a lot or even travelling for work, a laptop would be the most sensible decision.

Desktops can be easier to use, with larger keyboards and mouses. You can buy mouses for laptops, but if the keyboard or built-in touch mouse on your laptop breaks, then the integrated system makes it more expensive to fix. With a desktop, you would just buy a new keyboard or mouse.

Functionality of laptops has improved, closing the gap between what a laptop and desktop can do. You can purchase external hard drives as well, providing more storage for a smaller laptop. You can keep all of these things in mind when choosing what type of equipment is best for your business. Once you’ve made the decision to go with a laptop or desktop, you will have to choose what brand or specifications you want too.
