Desktop computers have an advantage over laptops, and spare parts and extensions tend to be more standardized, leading to lower prices and greater availability. For example, the size and installation of the motherboard are standardized in ATX, MicroATX, BTX and other form factors. Desktop computers have several standard expansion cards, such as conventional PCI or PCI Express, and in notebooks only, usually one Mini-PCI slot and one PC Card slot (. The procedures for installing and dismounting desktops are usually simple and standardized. Additions or replacements of some parts, such as an optical drive, a hard drive, or the addition of memory modules, are often quite simple. This means that the desktop computer can be configured and upgraded to a greater extent than the laptop. This feature makes desktop computers popular among gamers and enthusiasts. Another advantage is that the desktop does not require a separate (remote) power supply, like laptop computers, because it connects to a power outlet.
Both of them need software, for example, [url=https://driverscollection.com/]ATI drivers[/url] are required for video cards. In this case, the software is certified by the manufacturers and issued in the same time. However, the number of laptops is increasing.
Desktop computers also provide more space for cooling fans and ventilation holes for heat dissipation, which allows enthusiasts to "overclock" their computers with less risk. Two major manufacturers of microprocessors Intel and AMD have developed special processors for mobile computers, which consume less energy and produce less heat, but have a lower level of performance. Portable computers, on the contrary, offer portability that desktop PCs cannot provide because of its large size and design. The all-in-one design of the laptop provides a keyboard and devices for its users, and can rely on the power supplied from the battery. Laptops also widely integrate wireless technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G, offering their users a wider range of connectivity options, although this trend is changing, as more and more desktop computers include one or more of these technologies. For correct work of these functions, you need not only ATI drivers, but also others. You can find them by the name of the device manufacturer, but you need always choose the most recent of them.
