The desktop PC is ideal if you have no need to transport your computer, and are wanting to do more demanding tasks such as video editing, high end gaming and image manipulation.

The compact desktop PC is very similar to the desktop PC in the sense that it is quite powerful and can be used for quite high end applications.

It is smaller in size to the desktop PC and can be attached to the back of your monitor if needed to give extra space.

The netbook is an ideal match for the person who likes to travel as it is usually no larger than 12″ (corner to corner of the screen diagonally), which makes it light and compact.

The laptop is the original and more powerful big brother to the netbook.

As well as being larger in size than netbooks, the main difference is that laptops feature a disk drive. They are also more powerful due to the components they consist of.

The Acer Aspire 7736 Value laptop has an Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2GHz processor, 3GB of RAM, 250GB hard drive, webcam, 17.3″ screen and Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System.

With components like these the laptop is ideal for somebody who needs to do more demanding applications while on the run.

We highly recommend that if you are travelling with a laptop or netbook, you should consider getting a case to help protect and secure it.

You should always try and get a carry case that matches the size of the laptop/netbook you own.

A lot of the carry cases we offer come complete with pockets on the front and sometimes back so you can store your accessories.

I would also recommend an external hard drive to back up all the files on your PC/netbook/laptop, to prevent losing the files that are important to you should anything go wrong with your machine.

External hard drives come in all sorts of sizes to meet all needs and are a great way of storing films and music, as well as documents and treasured pictures. 🙂
