Since computers have advanced so much in technology lately, you would hardly even recognize what they were ten years ago, let alone 20. Do you remember the bulky monitor and the huge storage tower that came with every? Since the technology has improved so much, is a desktop computer still even an option to buy?
There are no reviews for this yet.
The short answer is yes, you can still buy a desk top computer. They still have a purpose for people at the job and for people who don’t care to be portable away from home. And a desktop can still perform a few more options than their cousin, the more compact laptop computer can. Gamers, office workers and even home recording enthusiasts still benefit with a great desk top computer.
Types of Desktops
Most of the major brands still produce at least a few forms of the desk top computer. However, laptops are much more popular, simply because we are a nation on the go. But for people who stay home to play PC games, ones who only use it to balance their checkbooks or those who don’t care to be portable, a desk top is still a great option.
Desk tops have traditionally cost a bit more money than a laptop, simply because they have more components to them. The speakers, the monitor, the keyboards and the tower are all individual pieces with parts that cost money to produce, so that expense will be passed on to the consumer. When you don’t need the convenience of a laptop, then the desk top model will work just fine and might even last longer.
Expense of Desktops
There is such a wide range of prices on desktop computers, you can hardly list them here. There is the screen size, the processing speed, the RAM, the gigs on the hard drive…all determine the cost of the computer you are buying. Most desktops come with a package deal, but you can also price out individual parts when something breaks or you simply want to upgrade one piece of your puzzle. A basic, decent desktop without bells and whistles can go for between $600 and $1200, with higher end models costing as much as $3,000 or $4,000. Large processors and high graphics is what make the price go up very high and what gamers, people who work in graphics or even designers need to use.
