Choosing a Notebook:

Choosing a portable computer, usually called a laptop or notebook, is in many ways similar to choosing a standard desktop computer. Think about your computer needs and balance those with cost. Just remember that bigger screens and extra features usually mean more weight, and the whole point of buying this kind of computer over a desktop model is its portability.

Here's a quick rundown of the advantages and disadvantages between desktop and notebook computers:

Desktop computers are…

  • Generally less expensive than notebooks.
  • Usually have bigger keyboards and larger screens.
  • Are difficult to transport.
  • Often bulky and can take up a lot of desk space.

    Notebook computers are…

  • Lightweight and easy to take anywhere.
  • Small and take up very little space.
  • Usually more expensive than desktop models with similar features.
  • More difficult to upgrade and repair.
  • More susceptible to dropping and/or breaking.

    If you decide that a notebook computer is what you want, the next step is to choose the correct machine to fit your needs. Use the scenarios below to determine the notebook that's right for you, based on how you want to use it.
