I finally found an antique S oak roll top desk I've been wanting for so long, so I swapped out the big compter desk for it. Problem is the desk is too small for the monitor and tower. I found an Acer 20" flat monitor, $15, to replace the old monitor... works great. The tower won't fit the desk, so it's presently sitting on the floor with wires everywhere. I don't like this at all, then OTOH don't like the idea of cutting hole in an antique desk to run wires.
My question is, as I'm computer illiterate, would a laptop be a better option? Are they really that advantageous for someone who doesn't use a computer that much other than PD, Craigslist, emails?
If I got a laptop, would highspeed or wifi be best? I wouldn't be carrying it. Or would one of those mini computers, which will fit the desk, be ok? Any help, suggestions, or ideas would greatly be appreciated.
