same way as............•Hard to upgrade

Wrong section. Merchant's corner is for Maplestory marketing and such.

I personally think a laptop would be better. The screen sizes aren't so different from desktops, and you could always hook it up to a monitor. And there's the charger to deal with battery issues. Disk space, separate hard drive or just a bigger one ( Wink ). Desktop repairs can be costly too. And the heating up issue, just place it on a desk.

"Discuss the economy, sell and trade if you wish." I thought that meant more than just maplestory. And I see. Yeah, my friend said the same about the heating issues, too.

I would go laptop. Even though desktop has more space youre most likely to not even use it all or even close to all of it. Also, depending on how urgent your situation is or how badly you want it, you could til larger solid state hard drives come out. Currently the largest is 250mb i think and thats what the newest mac book air has. Theyre a hell of a lot faster than reg hard drives cuz they dont got a spinny thing to get the info. If you can wait til solid state drives get to at least a tb, and theres a laptop with it, gey that. Course i dunno how long that will take... And that was my rant :p if you dont wanna wait, i vote laptop cuz honestly portable = powerful convenience Very Happy

It's a subsection in the Maplestory section. That implies Maplestory-related. And basically what Pie said too. If money isn't an issue, there are a load of laptops with big hard drives(goddammitcomputersareperverted).

Well, laptops are usually much cheaper and portable.

But the goddamn chargers always break.

LMFAO.

Apparently, Apple is the best brand, although I personally find Macs annoying to work with. Lenovo ranked second, and I think my brother has one that works well.
