A computer can be classified in many ways such as size, function, usage etc., and there are most likely five computer categories in common (Super, Mainframe, Mini, Micro, and Mobile).
However, to be more specific in our cases there are only two essential types (Desktop & Laptop). These types have significant differences in design but still must have the same components to perform operations.
For example, a desktop computer embodies a separate mouse, keyboard, and screen or monitor from its components (internal hardware) which inside its chassis. A laptop computer had the same parts but integrated into a single.
You can upgrade and customize desktop computer components. However, it is the opposite for laptop (only several parts which you change and update).« Back to Glossary Index
