Good Things

Upgrades: A few hundred dollars and a bit of help is all you need to boost the performance of your desktop, which is cool because it makes these computers have a longer product life.

Hard Disk Drive: Most desktops can easily have up to 4 TB (4,000 GB) with only two hard drives.Costs are low and storage is cheap, meaning that if you need more storage space, you can just pop in another hard drive into your computer.

Bad Things

Size and Weight: While some towers are smaller than others, they are still quite large compared to laptops. The overall weight of the machine also makes it completely unportable.

Wired: You are going to use all kinds of wires to use your desktop in any situation. Too many wires and it will be a mess and hard to manage it and keep it organized.

Stuck In One Place: When you get tired of your workstation, if you have a laptop, you can just move around to the sofa or the kitchen. With a desktop, you're stuck in the same position.
