Portable computer or desktop?
What's the Difference?
Is a desktop or portable computer be more suitable?
For a teacher
A portable computer would be more suitable for a teacher because they can plan their lessons at home and produce presentations at home then bring it in to school the following day.
However, some people could argue that a desktop would be more suitable because it is faster and has more memory. A memory stick can be used to transfer any presentations and documents between home and school.
For a news reporter
A portable computer would be more suitable because they will be travelling around a lot and so would want to take their work with them.
For a website designer
A desktop would be more appropriate because it has more memory so can have a wider range of software's in-stored. In addition, they are unlikely to take their work home.
For a doctor (GP surgery)
A desktop would be more suitable because they are sat at the same desk all day and aren't allowed to take their patients information home.
For a traffic warden
A portable computer would be more appropriate because they are walking around a lot so need a more compacted device.
