The truth is – despite what some people may claim – there is no hard and fast rule. It really depends on what you want to use your computer for. However read on and MYTECH Mobile will inform you of the pro’s and cons of purchasing a New PC or Laptop and why you should choose one or the other, and which brands to get.
COMPUTER VS LAPTOP
First of all you need to decide what you will be using the computer for. If you are going to be checking E-mails, browsing the internet or using an Office suite then you can use either a PC or Laptop with portability options being your only real deciding factor. You need to remember that a laptop whilst portable, sacrifices a lot of power due to its smaller size, it just doesn’t have the raw power of a full size tower. Having said that if you don’t intend on playing power hungry games, editing high quality Music, Videos or Pictures, then a laptop will suit you. If you still want to do these things yet keep the portability of a Laptop, then a higher end model will be designed for you with a specially inbuilt graphics card to increase system performance.
PRE-BUILT VS CUSTOM BUILT PC’s
What does this mean? The difference is between you going to a full size retail store and buying a ‘brand name’ computer, & going to a smaller privately owned computer shop or purchasing one of MYTECH Mobiles custom built PC’s. The brand name systems have a few draw backs and relatively no pro’s. First of all dues to their ‘bands’ manufacturing processes, they are often built with cheaper components, in strange physical arrangements and aren’t build specific to your needs as much as a ‘general’ set of needs for a ‘target market’. Often times the ‘brand name’ computers are actually harder to repair or cost more to repair due to their ‘unique’ parts or configurations. This is a factor many people don’t consider when purchasing a new computer that really should be of higher priority as you can get more years of life out of a computer if you make the choice to purchase a custom built PC.
Custom Built is another way of saying, built with individually selected parts, based on Brand, Quality or System Requirements. Why get a 2TB Hard Drive when you won’t be using all that space when you can go a smaller drive and save money. Perhaps you want to put that spare cash towards increasing system memory or adding in a Video card increasing system performance. These are all options that you have available when going Custom.
