K4sum1 Posted June 23, 2022 Share Posted June 23, 2022 Seeing how laptops are getting more and more locked down and power restricted is making me think that maybe a SFF PC could be a better portable workstation than a laptop. Desktop replacements do have some advantages, like the battery functioning as a UPS, integrated display, smaller size, etc, etc. However I've recently been thinking that it might be better to have a thin and light 13-15 in laptop to take wherever, and have a SFF PC for long trips or when more power might be needed. SFF PCs are much easier to work on and replace stuffs than laptops, assuming you have a decent case. There is also more expandability, as decent boards can support 4 or more drives. It also uses desktop parts for everything, which are usually significantly cheaper than their laptop counterparts. This has led me to think that maybe I should just build a SFF gaming PC instead of repairing my 8770W or buying a newer laptop, but I still like the all in one nature of laptops, so I'm not sure. 1 Precision M4800 - i7 4810MQ, 32GB RAM, Nvidia Quadro M2200 Thinkpad T430 - i7 3630QM, 16GB RAM, Intel HD 4000, 1080p display mod Main PC - AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, 64GB RAM, RTX 2080 Ti Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
