Well, it’s been 5 years with my Copaq Presario computer (I know this because we got just after we got married), and I think it’s finally time to upgrade (the computer, not the wife).
We’d like to get another laptop (I have one I got from work) and I feel like I’m missing something as to why anyone would go with a desktop now (besides the screen size).
I also don’t want to waste money on features I’m not going to use, and I have a 160 Gig external hard drive, so the computer’s hard drive space doesn’t have to be large.
Are laptops generally slower? I know they’re more expensive to get fixed.
Maybe getting a desktop with a flat screen would be an option, since we don’t like the bulkiness of the desktop monitors.
We DON’T use it for any large games. Just Internet and playing videos and music, and for word processing software like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Microsoft Word, Excel, etc.
We want FAST performance online, and when running a couple different programs at once (which our current computer sucks at).
