Desktop Computer Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living. - Nicholas Negroponte, founder and chairman of the One Laptop per Child non-profit association.
Desktop Computer as Your Daily Tool I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user. -Bill Gates, Microsoft Founder

Are usually not stolen so often as laptops If you want to save some money for your school or for yourself, you should not be skeptical about buying a reconditioned computer – a computer that has been previously returned from the manufacturer: usually there is absolutely nothing wrong with the returned PC. It may have just been a matter of brand name preference or some minor feature that did not quite match the previous owner’s first choice.
