Many of you might be confused between Workstation and Desktop PC, here is the clarification:
Workstations is for industrial-strength computing Workstations are all about number-crunching and power, and are designed to meet very specific computing needs.
Tremendous disk speed
· Significant quantities of synchronous dynamic RAM
· Support for high-end graphics cards
· A healthy number of slots (4 or more) to support network connectivity cards, advanced video cards, and more
· Several ports (USB, serial, and parallel) to connect scanners, monitors, and other peripherals to the workstation
· More expensive components therefore highly priced
· Mission Critical
Desktops support a variety of users and applications Desktops are all about flexibility -- they're designed to meet a much wider variety of computing needs. The same desktop PC that a computer programmer uses will work well for a graphic designer. The computer your accountant uses could easily be re-purposed for your VP of marketing. While you can certainly buy very powerful desktop PCs, you can also buy more economical models to meet staff needs and fit within your budget.
