...then there is no difference between a laptop and a desktop.. A computer is a computer is a computer, etc.. The only difference will be the type of security software and security steps you take to keep those computers secure. As such, if you check Microsoft's vulnerability statistics, Windows Vista has a slight edge on security issues simply because it has additional security features such as User Account Control, Parental Controls, plus the Phishing filter and Protected Mode on Internet Explorer 7. Assuming they are exactly the same, then both a desktop and laptop will be the same UNLESS they are used differently.
Hope this helps.
I'm planning to buy Dell mini 9 (WinXP) and use it mainly when I stay with my daughter , so I can use my own PC to access banking etc.
I will be using her modem (wired), so no wireless connection needed.
(I'm choosing a mini , easier to carry for me on international flights)
Will have MCaffee Security Centre on it,as per my desktop Vista PC, will use firefox, obviously cannot have all the additional software for scanning on demand,but could run some from my flash drive though.
Is there anything else ?
on my Main Desktop WinVista I have
McAfee Security Centre, BoClean, Firefox, MailwasherPro, Eudora,SpywareBlaster,
