Battery to be able to operate w/o power source for a short period
Portability added into price
Run very warm; easy to overheat
very difficult to repair
Laptops are a great option as a computer for those users who need a mobile workstation because he or she is on the road or unable to sit at a desk for extended periods of time. A laptop allows the ability to move anywhere with relative ease, and still be able to use a computer.
A laptop, however, may not be the best option for a user who is simply looking for a space saver compared to the original barebone desktop computer kits (the traditional style desktop). If you are simply looking for a way to save space from the old home computer, then an All In One computer may be the better choice for you.
All In One
more price goes into the system as opposed to price going into size
touchscreen options available
capable of almost pure wireless system
not highly portable
no internal battery
one thing goes wrong possibility of entire system not working
A better option to use as a home computer, for the space conscious user is the All In One PC. The great thing about All In Ones (AIO) is that they can offer the user a very similar wireless experience when compared to the laptop.
An AIO PC consists of the monitor, and CPU within a single casing. The screens on the AIO tend to be larger than most laptops which makes reading easier to do with a larger screen, simply because font size determines the size printed out on a sheet of paper, it does not necessarily determine the size of the font on the screen of your computer.
AIO may be a better choice for a home computer than a laptop for some because you can typically get more out of your system for the same price. When paying for a laptop there is a price factor for the portability and size for the computer. When paying for an AIO there is only a size factor added into the price because an AIO is not as easily portable as the laptop and has no internal battery.

Why This Computer?
This All-In-One is a great entry level personal computer for anyone that is looking to be able to use their computer for simple at home projects such as:
office programs: excel, powerpoint, word, quicken
If you are not looking for a computer to play the latest and greatest video games, and you do not do anything too system intensive on your computer, then there is no point in dumping excessive amounts of money into a computer that you will never be able to use the entire system.
An all-in-one PC is a computer that contains the central processing unit or CPU and the monitor encased in a single entity.

price when compared to a desktop, you pay more for the convenience of having an all-in-one
A desktop PC is a computer that consists of the CPU and monitor encased as separate entities and are controlled with a keyboard and mouse combination.

room for airflow, computer will not run as warm as a laptop or an all-in-one

Desktop PCs, because of their customization opportunity, make the best choices for the gaming computer route. It is possible to add a lot more into your computer for the money that you pay for it with the desktop PC.
The All-In-One PC makes a great home personal computer because you can do any of the more basic home computer tasks such as internet surfing, video streaming, and word, office or business, applications all really well, and the All-In-One will save you a ton of extra space that a desktop would take up.
This book was written to be able to give everyone a chance to build his or her own computer if he or she desired to.
The book was tested on my mother before it was made available on the website. Hence the slogan, "So easy my mom can do it!"
I hope that it is easy to follow and helps everyone become their own computer hardware guru. $4.99 $0.00
