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.
