i'm going to be snagging a new computer at some point or another, and i'm not sure what to do. a laptop would be convenient for college and whatnot, but realistically, who in college actually brings their computer to class to take notes n shit? i figure a desktop should be sufficient, but i just don't know
throw some thoughts in my general direction..

I'm also in High School and I have a desktop. Laptops are generally slower, overheat and have short battery life. 2 hours is garbage. Also, the keyboards are stupid and the touchpads are annoying.

A desktop totally wins on bang for your buck, availible upgrades and average performance. However, laptops have one feature that makes them worthwile; portability. However, in college, I cant say I've really ever moved my laptop off my desk. Sure, its small and doesnt take up much space, but I'd trade it in for a desktop anyday. Desktops are just better in so many ways, like having a full keyboard, a nice screen that can be upgraded and just better performance. Go for the desktop, its really better for college.
i have both, a laptop for most things and a desk top for editing pictures/video. I also can use my desktop as a tv and i use to to network my whole house so that when im working on my laptop i can send it to any of the computers in the house.
