Around the world we can still see a loyal and unwavering use of desktop computer systems in almost every developed country. In nearly every home within a developed country you will still find at least one desktop computer system regardless of how many laptops the residents may own. While laptops can be very quick and convenient in terms of mobility, desktops have the ground covered on strength, speed, expandability and longevity. It is quite a fascinating thing within the industry to see that while laptops, netbooks and tables pcs have basically taken over every inch of the consumer electronics industry, desktops still remain in high demand – it is almost a phenomenon to see both markets work so fiercely but in tandem next to each other.

You will find that many times people who tried to replace, ended up coming back to buy desktops anyway!
