Why Desktops Are Still Winning The Home Computer Game

Fun fact: did you know that the first home computer was installed in 1977? 

In other words, basically half a century ago! (Feel old yet? 💀)

And compared to the vintage capabilities of the computers back in ‘77, our options today are endless! Whether hulking towers, sleek all-in-ones, or space-saving mini PCs, today's home computers pack spiffier designs and more value than ever.

Everyone is obsessed with the portability and compact size of laptops these days… so why would you want to buy a desktop PC or Mac? 🤔

To answer that, let’s think about it in terms of creation vs consumption.

Laptops are amazing for consuming content. Whether that be photos on Instagram or cute cat videos on Facebook, nothing does it better than a laptop or tablet. But when it comes to creation, that’s a whole different story. Home computer desktops beat laptops by a landslide for so many different reasons ☝🏻

Simply put: sheer muscle and computing comfort. Mobile devices like laptops and tablets simply can't fill some computing needs as well as the time-tested desktop. (Not many people are editing their 4K videos on iPads!)

Home computer-class CPUs and graphics processors are more powerful than their mobile counterparts, for the same price! They give you that extra push to finish whatever task you're working on in less time. Your money goes further with desktop components in general too, a $1900 laptop gets you 4 core i7 with 8gb memory and a 250 solid state. However, a $1900 desktop gets you double the processing cores double the SSD, double the memory, and 10x the video power‼️

But what’s the big deal about more memory?

For one, you’ll never have to worry about that annoying “your memory disk is almost full” notification ever. Again. 🙏🏻

Owning a home computer with at least a Terabyte of memory means endless space for your work documents, but most importantly, endless space for your memories. Your favourite memories and laughs documented through photos, videos, or journal entries. With a home computer, you’ll never have to think “is there going to be enough space for this?”

So go make as many memories as you can, because with a desktop, they’ll never be forgotten.
