Towers, PC's, also known as Desktop Machines are notorious for slowing down progressively over time. One of the best things you can do to keep your computer running at full speed is: Virus/Spyware removal, Temporary File removal from browsers like (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox). Turning off startup items - Some programs are very RAM/CPU intensive; meaning they slow down performance tremendously if running in the background from startup. You can disable startup items [WARNING]: We suggest you research or take the computer to a specialist if you're unfamiliar with [ MSCONFIG.EXE ] The registry is also a dangerous place to play around; unless you are familiar with it; otherwise it's a very handy place to check for startup items and even spyware/virus manifests. When we look at hardware failure typically it's the Power Supply (on average a $60 part) more frequently during storms or power outages; we suggest unplugging the computer tower when you go on long trips, vacation, or even weekends during the stormy seasons.
Thin, small, big, portable - Laptops are available in todays market with a wide range in screen size, capacity, and rendering capabilities, let's not forget quality. Dell is more commonly a choice because they parts are easier to access, the machines are more built to fix, and they typically use better components depending on the model/revision/year. Next in line is Asus being the second choice and suggestion.
