You would be forgiven for thinking that desktop computers are a bit old hat. Many people now use laptops, tablets and smart phones to connect to the internet and to perform various other tasks that could once only be done on a desktop computer.
However, there is still a real need for desktop PCs and for a lot of tasks they are still the best devices for the job. That is why a large proportion of offices are still equipped with desktop computers. It is more comfortable to be sat at a desktop PC than hunched over a laptop, so for work that lasts a few hours a desktop computer is certainly better. Modern PCs are more compact and light than they used to be too, which means that they need not take up very much of your space, either in the workplace or at home. The large monitors that are available now also mean you can have a nice clear view of the work you are doing. Alternatively these monitors are great for playing games, and many people use desktop PCs for game playing. Desktop PCs can also be upgraded and easily repaired and maintained with leads, panels and server racks from retailers such as www.netshop.co.uk.
