Seven Reasons Desktop PCs Will Survive the Test of Time
Apparently, desktops are in decline. At least the sales of them are, anyway.
Although, as someone who uses a desktop on a day-to-day basis, I can safely say I still think they’re ace. Yes, laptops, tablets and smartphones may offer the portability that a desktop can never compete with, but there’s still more than enough room for the old dinosaur to compete amongst its smaller bite-size siblings.
Will desktops survive the course of time and still be around in five, 10, 15 or 20 years time? I’d say so. And here are seven reasons why that ought to be the case.
1) Bigger Is (Sometimes) Better
As technology advances, we seem to have an inherent responsibility to make every smaller and more compact. In some cases, smaller is indeed better. Just take the mobile phone, for instance. Nobody wants a return to the days of the brick telephone. But when it comes to PCs, desktops with their overbearing monitors are just fine. We can see everything that little bit clearer and more precisely making our work that little bit easier.
2) Durability And Power
Because of their large processors, desktops are typically much more powerful than their smaller competitors – meaning that they can store larger amounts of data, run more smoothly, last longer and require less computer repair. Oh, and they don’t overheat like laptops.
3) Cheap As (Not Quite) Chips
According to my extensive research (and not merely assumption), desktop computers are considerably cheaper than Laptops. And, considering the point I just made about durability, that’s actually a really good thing. Why? Because you’ll replace desktops less often and therefore save money. Which we all like doing, don’t we?
