Laptops are expensive to maintain and repair. If you don't believe me, ask how much cost to repair a laptop screen then you will flip back. Also, it is more difficult to perform any modification in reference to the CPU, motherboard,and graphic chip. The configurations on laptops are limited specifically those that are by laptops manufacturers and this is not the case with desktops. Additionally, some software might not be compatible with the laptop hardware and its settings of the operating system. With a desktop it is easier from all the angles to work more efficient and with less headaches.
