My daughter is working from home for two years now. It’s been her way of life before everyone talks about how they will go about their “new normal” amidst the pandemic.
Late last year, N and her Dad were planning to assemble desktop parts because she thinks she’ll be more productive to use desktop than a laptop.
N is a graphic designer and she finds desktops to be more reliable than the laptop she is currently using.
She said a video adapter can be installed with independent higher memory in desktop plus it can render graphic display faster. With these qualities in mind, N said, she can be more productive in her job.
My son might likely switch to desktop just like his sister.
The community college where K is currently enrolled at is offering distance learning to its old and new students. And we are adapting to the new norm since the government (still) prohibits face-to-face learning.
The community college is offering desktop rental to students needing them to cope with the demand of the course requirement. K is taking up multimedia arts and needs a reliable laptop or desktop with fast internet connection for his online classes.
The only thing we worry about is the inevitable increase in electric bill consumption once the purchase of new desktops happens.
We are looking for new and refurbished desktops at Rakuten. Hubby is weighing which is more practical to buy. We might consider buying online since they offer free shipping for every purchase made.
