Desktops, even the all in one models, still use much more space and you need extra space to place your keyboard.
- Integrated Keyboard

- Trade in Value
If you like to keep up on the new releases and sell or trade yours often, your will get more of your purchase price back with a laptop. The value of desktops can drop quickly with so many new brands coming on the market. But laptops, though they also feature new models quite often, seem to keep their original value much better.
