The demands for portable technology have only increased in the last decade. iPads, laptops, tablets, and cell phones have all satisfied the need for technology that can go anywhere. Although this technology is great for on the go, there are still many advantages for having a desktop computer. With a massive increase in people who are working from home and the large numbers of them that are anticipated to continue to work from home after the pandemic, having a desktop just makes sense.
It all starts with the price of the item itself. Desktops have many accessory components that can be added, but for the basic set up, they can start at a fraction of the price of a laptop. At a fraction of the price of their portable siblings, you are also getting a more powerful processor. This processor improves both the function and performance of the computer. In addition to more power, they also have more storage space and can connect to a variety of devices through their data ports.
A desktop does take more time to set up. The cords need to be organized and everything needs to be plugged in the right way. However this has significant benefits to working from home because it establishes a workplace. For an added level of security you can plug in your wifi router into your computer, strengthening the connection and making it less likely that your computer will lose power.
When you actually sit down at the desktop, efficiency starts with what is right in front of you. Keyboards on a laptop are full sized and often angled to make typing easier and put less strain on your wrists and hands. The mouse also provides support instead of having to use the touch-pad on a laptop. The screen size of a desktop is also significantly larger than the average laptop. Having everything bigger makes it easier on your eyes and helps to reduce eye strain.
