The popularity of laptops is understandable due to their functionality and mobility. Because laptops are smaller than standard computers, iIt is something much more susceptible to damage - if you pour a cup of coffee, the risk of damage to the entire laptop is enormous. If you pour a cup of coffee on a desktop computer keyboard, you have to replace a keyboard - no need extra help. Laptop can accidentally drop it on the floor, it can be thrown off the desk by a cat, or child. Desktops due to their size are less susceptible to mechanical damage. A very important feature of laptops is their portability, which means that it should be fairly light. Behind this, however, it does not go design - lightweight plastic casing is not sufficiently robust. Servicing these devices is much more expensive and not count on the manufacturer's warranty - it does not cover mechanical damage.
Who needs expensive hardware?
Do You think computer for a gamer is expensive? Stop to think like that - graphic designers have much worst position. Especially those who deal with assembly and processing movies. For example - cost of screen is about 3-4 thousand pounds . Software for designers need a lot of power, so a computer have to be really efficient, the priority firearms definitely holds 3D graphics - rendering process is very incriminating computer if you do not have to last a few days (not an exaggeration), it requires a lot of power. The failure of such equipment is really a very big problem, but fortunately these computers are much better made. No wonder - after all, the price is quite Space.
Laptop, from Wiki:
A laptop, often called a notebook, is a portable personal computer with a clamshell form factor, suitable for mobile use.1 Although originally there was a distinction between laptops and notebooks, the former being bigger and heavier than the latter, in modern usage there is often no longer any difference.2 Laptops are commonly used in a variety of settings, such as at work, in education, and for personal multimedia.
A laptop combines the components and inputs of a desktop computer, including the display, speakers, a keyboard, and pointing devices (such as a touchpad or trackpad) into a single unit. Most modern-day laptops also have integrated webcams and built-in microphones. The device can be powered either from a rechargeable battery or by mains electricity from an AC adapter. Laptops are diverse devices and specialised kinds, such as rugged notebook or convertible computers, have been optimized for specific uses. The hardware specifications significantly vary between different types, makes, and models.
Portable computers, which later developed into modern laptops, were originally considered to be a small niche market, mostly for specialized field applications, such as in the military, for accountancy, or for sales representatives. As portable computers became closer to the modern laptop, they became widely used for a variety of purposes.3
