Up One Level



Laptop has become a generic expression for all portable computers. The earliest were described by some users as 'luggables' but as the size and weight of such equipment fell (and still continues to do so), the names have changed from luggable, to portable, Laptop, Notebook, Sub-Notebook, and Palmtop.

Laptops are more expensive than desktops and require extra security measures, if only because of their obvious attractiveness to thieves.
