Eight Reasons Why You Should Own a Laptop Now
Are you torn in choosing between laptop, desktop, or tablet?
While these three have different uses, there are plenty of reasons why you should consider owning a laptop. See below that may help you.
1. Convenient to Use
Since laptops are portable, there is no doubt it brings convenience. Whether you are a student, a business owner, or a coach, you can bring your laptop anywhere you want. Use it at the park, coffee shop, library, or even at your friends’ house.
You only need to bring its charger if you plan to use it for longer hours.
In addition, laptops only weigh three to eight pounds depending on the unit, so they will not cause any pain on your shoulder.
2. You Can Save Space
Desktops have plenty of components that you need to maintain. You need a desktop, a CPU, and a mouse. You also need a working table and a proper space to set up and ensure that it will not be damaged. That’s why it takes so much space. We all know that space matters, especially if you are in an apartment or renting a unit.
On the other hand, laptops are only small units and do not need a specific room or space. You can keep it on top of your cabinet or working table as long as it is safe.
3. Plenty of Features
Laptops have plenty of features. If you need more advanced features, you can pick a laptop with the following:
- USB Type-C/ Thunderbolt 3 Ports
- Higher-resolution screens
- OLED Displays
- Intel Kaby Lake CPUs
- Nvidia Pascal Graphics
- 2-in-1 PCs
- Infrared Camera
Aside from these, you can always install additional applications. Some are free, while others need licenses. You need to be cautious in using unlicensed applications to prevent malware vulnerability.

As long as you have the basic knowledge of using them, laptops are easy to operate. The “On” and “Off” power are visible and only need a single press. Right after opening, you can easily explore the apps by hovering on the search bar and going to the “Settings.” There are also times that common apps are already on the main screen.
6. Flexible Power Options
Since laptops have rechargeable batteries, you can use laptops wherever you are without needing a power source.
There are also power banks for laptops now. This means that in case of power interruption, you can still continue with your activities.
7. You Can Resell It
If you decide to upgrade your laptop, you will not regret it because you can resell it.
For example, you have bought a laptop for 20,000 pesos; then you plan to buy another after a year. You can sell your previous laptop for around 15, 000 to 18, 000 depending on its current value or condition.
Although you will not be able to sell it from its original price, remember that you have already used it for a year, and that’s your investment already. Anyhow, you can still add this amount to your new one.
8. You Can Explore and Learn More
When you have your own laptop, you can easily explore new things. If you are not a techie, you can start checking the applications and see how they work. If you plan to work online, you can start maximizing the Microsoft office apps or Google apps.
You can hone your skills such as graphics design using Photoshop, video editing, and many more. The decisions are all yours. You only need to start.
Laptops are beneficial to everyone, especially in this digital era. Through a laptop, you can do most of your work, personal projects, run or start a business, and many more at your own comfort.
