1984 Posted January 12, 2006 Share Posted January 12, 2006 What do you all think would be a better investment? I have a decent system (but not like that kickass one i see in Taruns new signature ) buts its 4.5 years old, and i am looking to network within my home (one computer in the basement, one in the family room). im kicking around getting a laptop. pros: its portable outside the home to bring places to get help, give help (i actually am helping a few people here and there ). its great to put files on to read both inside the house or when i travel. its light, i can use my existing external hard drives, headphones, external dvd burner, etc. when i want to, and i can (i think?) hitch it to my stereo system in the living room for tunage. also, my big screen tv is in the family room, but my computer is in the basement (my wife wont let me put it upstairs, i know, whipped, but heh ), so i cant watch my movies on the big tv. laptop would let me do that. cons: i have heard they heat up (not sure if this is true), i am not sure if i can get as good (meaning storage, speed and capabilities) a laptop as i can get if i build another desktop. plus, it would be a ton of fun learning to build a desktop and putting it together. what would you all do? :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
