2 Going into the College of Ed it is required to buy a laptop. But arent they expensive? And wouldnt it just be better to get a desktop computer where its always at home and cheaper? I did some looking to see whats better a laptop or a desktop. Heres what Ive found…

9 Decision… Getting a laptop or desktop depends on your preference. If you want a computer you can carry around with you so its there when needed get a laptop. But if you want just want one for home use and dont mind not having it 24-7 then get a desktop computer. For me I have no choice I need a laptop. Even if it is a bit more expensive. Although I would rather have a desktop computer, maybe Ill do fine with a laptop for now and get a desktop later.
