Today’s demand for powerful big data input, analysis, and storage is far beyond the capabilities of most portable devices.

Experts, such as John Samborski, CEO of Ace Computers, say the government shutdown mandates cost-effective technology that offers top performance, this is where stationary desktops shine.

     Mobile devices will never completely replace desktops for a number of reasons. For starters, desktops are typically more powerful and have better ergonomics. They are also less expensive in both the short run and over time.

    Samborski said, “Desktops are content creation devices that are more suitable than mobile devices for the high level technology user. You have to remember that portable devices such as tablets and smart phones were originally created for content consumption—playing games, checking email, web browsing, etc.”

    Samborski went on to say that, while portable devices are getting better at content creation, so are desktops. And the performance gap continues to widen. “Today’s demand for powerful big data input, analysis, and storage is far beyond the capabilities of most portable devices,” he added. “Most organizations today need computing power that portable devices just can’t handle.”

    Another desktop plus is the cost. First, the initial cost is lower than alternate devices. Second, because the desktop typically resides in a system that includes at least a server, monitor, keyboard and printer, the entire system doesn’t need to be replaced when one component goes down. On the other hand, a laptop, tablet, or smart phone with a black screen would require replacement of the entire device.

    Another argument for desktops is the stability of the platform. Where mobile devices, by their nature, are trendy and quickly become obsolete; desktops are designed for the long haul; they can easily be upgraded and updated for years without replacing the entire unit. This ability to upgrade vs. replace, for many organizations, is the single biggest cost saver of desktops.

    Many businesses opt for desktops because of control issues. This is especially important where sensitive data is involved. A desktop, for example, is much less likely to get stolen or lost than a laptop, tablet, or smart phone. Desktops also tend to be much faster than mobile devices and they can accommodate multiple processors and video cards.

    Tablets and smart phones tend to do a lot of things, but none of them very well. A desktop system is composed of multiple components--each designed to perform its primary function well. A good example is the keyboard. Today’s desktop keyboards are ergonomically configured to reduce and even eliminate stress on finger and wrist joints. The keyboards on laptops are necessarily smaller and because of this, more difficult and less comfortable to use.

    “There will always be a place for desktops,” Samborski said. “In fact, if desktops were to go away tomorrow, it would leave a significant gap in terms of functionality, reliability, and security.”
