  • Which part of my computer is the desktop?

  • Do I still need a desktop?

    If you just browse the web, send email, edit documents and photos, and maybe do your taxes, you don’t need a desktop. Laptops and smartphones can all do these basic tasks now. If you do more complicated tasks like editing video or crunching statistics, consider staying with a powerful machine.
