A laptop is today's most common unit since you can take it with you but with the same old downsides of lower lifespans and higher costs. But performance has reached levels where we can use a laptop for most applications (none noted by you yet.)
I can't see what criteria you are using to select which way to go.
I am planning to buy a computer 1st week of December.
I am 22 years old, intermediate level in computers. (Hardware/Software)
I really don't have a budget limit. I'm planning to buy a Mac computer.
But I was wondering if Desktop24" or a Laptop17" Mac would be better for a 1st time user for "MAC"?
And what software is recomended for a 1st time user in Mac?
