Desktops are a better solution for schools for many
reasons. Desktops have more computing
power than laptops. Laptops are more
likely than desktops to be stolen or lost by irresponsible young students. Also, if you look at a laptop and a desktop with
the exact same specifications, the desktop will be cheaper.
Laptops are defintely the better choice for school and the reason is simple, homework. If you give laptops then the work done in school can easily be taken home and done at home. This eliminates the problem of some kids not being able to afford a computer at home as well.
