What is the difference between a desktop computer and a workstation?
The difference between a desktop computer and a is in the components. A desktop is just a computer while a workstation will contain all the basic components used in an office like a computer, telephone, printer and so much more.
the basic difference between desktop and workstation is that in desktop ecc ram( error checking and correcting ram) is not present while if i talk about in workstation ecc ram is present there as well as workstations are preferred due to higher applixcation like autocadd application,designing application, mechnical designing purpose and also as well as it is certified by isv( international software vendor). simply i can say that workstation are more powerful than desktop.
Most games are GPU intensive, not CPU intensive. The real difference between a desktop and a gaming computer is the GPU. A desktop will have a minimal GPU (just really to display and have visual effects), while a gaming computer will have a dedicated graphics card and higher performing parts. Hope this helped :)
For starters, the "difference" should be obvious in the names. Laptop means well...a computer you sit in your lap. Desktop means a computer that rests on your desk. A laptop is a portable computer. they are small and compact...for more info...please Google laptops. A desktop is NOT portable....Google Desktops.
