A desktop computer is a personal computer that sits on a desk and is the most common type of personal computer. There are different types of desktop computers, but they all have one thing in common - they use an LCD monitor to display information and input data. Many desktop computers use a keyboard and mouse for input. Desktop computers offer a lot of flexibility, as they can be customized to suit their users needs.
The Current State of Desktop Computers
In 2017, desktop computers are becoming less common. While it is now the domain of professionals and companies, many personal users no longer want to invest in a desktop computer. This is due to the ever-increasing costs associated with these machines, as well as the technology constantly going through advancements. For example, Intel’s latest 6th generation Core processors occur every two years which make desktops obsolete within a few years. Desktop computers have been struggling over the past few decades because new generations of processors are not backwards compatible and the newest processors can outperform older ones. While desktops have been struggling over the past few decades, laptops have been making a comeback because they are more versatile and lighter than traditional desktop computers.
What are the Differences Between Laptops and Desktops?
The laptop and the desktop are two different types of computers that have different features. Laptops are portable and can be carried around easily. They also have a smaller screen size for a more comfortable use. On the other hand, desktops are stationary and has a larger screen size which is better for gaming and entertainment purposes.
The processor in laptops is not as fast as desktops but it can still be used for most of the tasks at home or office. The RAM in laptops is also less than that of desktops but it can be upgraded to improve performance.
What are the Advantages of Having a Desktop PC instead of a Laptop?
Desktop PCs are a great alternative to laptops. They are more powerful and offer better performance. They also have more storage space and can be upgraded in the future, unlike laptops which cannot be upgraded. The two largest categories of desktop computers are towers and All-in-One (AIO) PCs. A tower computer is a large device that takes up a lot of space, while an AIO PC is a smaller device that includes all the features of a home computer in one unit.
Conclusion & Future Predictions for PC's
The future of desktops is uncertain. But there are a few predictions about the future of desktop computers.
First, we predict that the desktop computer will be around for at least another five years. Second, we predict that desktops will become more and more powerful in order to compete with laptops and tablets. Third, we predict that they will be more affordable as manufacturers try to compete with laptops and tablets on price. Fourth, we predict that desktops will become even more specialized as they are used by specific industries like healthcare or engineering.
It is difficult to say what the future of PC's will be like but these predictions give us a glimpse into what it might look like!
