Many people nowadays prefer to buy laptops over desktop computers because of the mobility it can give. With a laptop, you can go to the mall and take advantage of their free wifi service while you work in an air conditioned setting. But the first thing that conks out among laptops is usually the battery. This is because of improper charging practices. Original batteries can be really expensive but there are also those cheap laptop batteries that are sold by other manufacturers. They are cheaper and thus are not that long lasting. But I guess that is okay because you will just probably use it another year or so and you would already want to buy a new and more advanced laptop.
