Should I Buy a Laptop Or a Desktop Computer?

I'm about to buy a new computer and I have to decide whether I buy a laptop or a desktop computer.
It will be mainly used to do school work and listen to some music.
What's the advantage of having a laptop over a desktop computer other than being able to carry it away?
Which is more robust? which one will last longer?

If you're not taking your computer out of your house then I see no reason to buy a laptop, except in the case you plan to move it within your house.
The thing with laptop computers is that you need to be more careful in the way you handle them. It's a delicate product.
Desktop computers are definitely more robust and will last longer. It's up to you i guess.
You should also think about the hours of use your computer will have, having a laptop working the whole day will sure cause overheating issues.
