Laptops vs. Desktops

With many businesses issuing a call back to the office, we’ve reignited the age-old question: Are laptops or desktops a better choice for optimal productivity? This decision has never been more significant than in the present scenario. Do we hedge against another potential pandemic and outfit everyone with laptops, or do we double-down on calling workers back into the office and give everyone desktops? 

Laptops, with their portability and flexibility, can be a hedge for businesses who don’t want to double-down. Their compact design allows them to be set up anywhere, thereby adapting effortlessly to a myriad of home or office working environments. With the advancement in docking stations, most modern laptops can match desktops in processing power, capacity, ability to deliver video to multiple monitors and anything else that you need. There’s also the benefit of having a built-in battery backup, adding another layer of flexibility should power outages occur. 

Desktops are probably still preferred in scenarios where physical security, raw computing power, extensive multitasking, and large amounts of storage are needed. They often have longer lifespans and offer more bang for your buck when it comes to high-performance components. The ability to attach larger monitors are preferred for visually demanding tasks and create comfortable ergonomics that provide ideal working conditions. This may reduce strain during long hours of work.
