We live in the age of technology, and it seems that there is not one home nowadays that is without a computer. But so many people are now getting laptops instead of desktops how do you know which will make you feel closer to living like a celebrity? This article will give your teens some things that they can take into consideration when trying to make their decision.
The first thing you need to do is figure out what you will be using the computer for most often. Will it be for personal or just school use? Will you have to print? Will you need to be able to type other places than just at home? Obviously if you will be doing school work on your computer it may be more comfortable to set up a work station at your home. This would include a desktop computer with a printer. Then you would be able to arrange all of the items you need on a daily basies to complete your work on your desk.
But of course as a teen you will probably prefer a laptop that everyone can see, or maybe a PDA? PDA’s are very similar to laptop’s and just about every celebrity has one. So if it is the celebrity look you are going for you may want to forget about the laptop and start looking at the PDA’s. Sony happens to make some of the best PDA’s that I have every seen. Sony has however decided to stop makin the CLIE’ Palm OS.
They say that their is just too much competition with other mobile devices. This is really a dissapointment since this was a hot item in the past among celebrities. The latest things seem to be the slightly more expensive smart phones, and PDA form-factor phones. Another thing that may help you to determine whether a desktop computer is actually better than a laptop computer or if you want to go with the PDA is the price. Everyone knows that laptops are just as expensive as desktop computers. But the price for a celebrity looking PDA is a lot cheaper. But you should keep in mind that the more features you want the more it will cost you.
When it is time for you to go shopping for your computer it would probably be a good idea to try and find a good package deal. This does not just mean the computer, and the printer. This would include the hardware packages that you get with each computer. Most laptops do not come with an internet card, or connection. There will usually be an additional costs to get the program or internet card that you will need to get you interent access. In addation I have found through the course of my research that many laptops don’t come with many programs at all. They cost just as much as a desktop computer but you are really not getting as much as you would with a desktop computer.
If of course you have no budget and money is no object then your decision would be based soley on your particular needs. But if you are like most people in the world you will need to stick to a budget and try to get the best deal for your money. So the bottom line as to if you should buy a desktop computer, a laptop or a PDA really depends on your own personal need as a teen going for the celebrity look.
One additional thing that you will want to keep in mind is that no matter what device you choose, if you have internet acces than all of your information is public record, and just like celebrities your personal information can be stolen. Just be catious as to what you put on any computer! Remember there is no right or wrong when choosing your computer.
