The reality is usually a compromise, resulting in a multifunctional space. After all, it is a home. Literally speaking, the home office is multifunctional and this presents its own challenges. The shortcomings of the home office could be more suited to the deployment of a desktop computer, even though it is less mobile than a laptop.
The benefits of a desktop versus a laptop for the home working environment:
Desktops cost half the price of a comparable laptop
Desktops offer lower risk of damage and theft
Desktops are cheaper to repair, maintain and to upgrade components
Desktops offer superior power – allowing multiple storage and USB devices
Desktops cost less to insure
Desktops offer a lower risk of damage and theft
Desktops are more robust and can handle heat better
Desktops offer better sound quality
Desktops offer better ergonomic options (mouse, keyboard and monitor)
The best way to increase productivity when working from home is to acquire the best high performance components that you interact with the most e.g. keyboard, display and mouse.
