Is it wise to choose a Notebook over a Desktop computer?

That question came up for a discussion when my attempt to sell my unused desktop computer brought lukewarm response. My friend told me that the era of desktop home computers is gone and is replaced by portable and hand-held computing devices such as notebooks and iPads.

Well may be he is right but I am of firm opinion that desktop computers can easily outweigh the other computing gadgets as far as convenience is considered-right?

I am aware that computer notebooks offer a number of advantages over desktops but still…
Ok, let me think aloud of the advantages.

1.       Mobility
Notebooks with wireless connectivity can travel with you throughout your home, so you can check your email or do your Internet shopping anywhere.

Of course, notebooks also make sense for those who are on the go. Students can take laptops to class and to the library, while businesspeople can take them along while traveling. With WiFi so widely available, it even makes sense to have a notebook while on vacation. With the right notebook, it's easy to take photos with your digital camera, upload them, and email them to friends and family before you even get back home. Or you can use it to write a vacation blog and include those pictures from your digital camera.

      2. Better Displays
The size and quality of computer notebook displays has improved so dramatically that there's little difference between laptops and a computer desktop. For example, you can get Apple's MacBook with a 13.3-inch LCD widescreen (1280 x 800 pixels), a 15.4-inch LCD widescreen (1440 x 900 pixels) or a 17-inch widescreen (1680 x 1050 pixels). Similarly, the Compaq Presario has a 15.4-inch display.

3. Light Weight
Arguments for a notebook against heavier laptops are worthless. The weight on your hand speaks for notebooks.

There are so many advantages to owning notebooks that, before you buy your next computer, it's worth your while to take one for a spin.

So, what should I do with my unused desktop?  May be I can donate it to a library?
