Computers and books are two important things for the students. However, if my school has enough money to purchase either computers or books, I prefer to buy books for the library. In my opinion, school can buy more books than computers because books are cheaper than computers, books do not need to repair or updata, books are good for students` healthy. The specific reasons and examples are as below.
School can buy more books than computers for students because books are cheaper than computers. If school buy one computer, as the same price, school can buy at least more than fifty books for students. Therefore, fifty students can read whatever they want at the same time than to wait for a computer. In this way, everyone will be happy.
Besides that, computer repair and updata fees are a huge fees. If school buy books for students, there are no such fees for school. School can buy more books for the students if it has those money. If school do not have those money and buy computer for students, the computer could not work. It just like school buy a lot of useless iron to the students.
In addition, books are for studnets` healthy. There are a lot of problems for students long time to use computers, such as myopia, headache, tired and so on. However, there is no such as these problems for students to read books.
In conclusion, school should buy books for students as books can be bought more for students, books do not need repair or updata fees, and books good for students` healthy.
