     3In the past few years, laptops have taken over from desktops.  
     4There are many reasons for this, but here are a few of the 
     5big ones. Most of these are applicable to everyone, but  
     6especially for students using their own laptop. 
     7 
     8 * Portability - take it to meetings, conferences, home, etc. 
     9 * Size - it fits on the table in a coffee shop or airport seat 
     10 * Upgrades - laptops are not as upgradable, but this has become less necessary. Two key parts, memory and hard drive, are usually very easy to upgrade in today's laptops 
     11 * Personalization - personal settings and files can be mixed with work if it is your own computer 
     12 
     13However, laptops have significant disadvantages: 
     14 * More expensive for the same hardware 
     15 * Use smaller screens (and today's desktops often support dual monitors) 
     16 * When the battery dies they are more or less useless
