In the newest twist to crazy world – laptops with the same specs as Desktops are cheaper. That used to be the other way around. Normally laptops cost $100 – $150 more than desktops. So if you think I got these prices backwards, I’m certainly capable of that, but I didn’t. Laptops are cheaper than desktops today – I’m not sure about tomorrow.
17″ laptops are currently running around $2,000 so they are most definitely NOT cheaper than they were. I feel like manufactures are cutting the product line to only what they sell. So only Gamer machines at 17″ are available at present.
So if you were thinking of replacing a desktop with a laptop for mobility – it’s your lucky day! This is one of the few places you will SAVE money right now.
