Computers are more important than books

With the development of the technology, more and more electronic devices are used in our life whenever we are working, travelling or studying. When it comes to studying, I hold the opinion that computers are far more important than books. Which means that, if my school wants to buy books, I’d suggest them to buy us computers instead.

Buying computers can do a great favor to schools. Compared with books, computers are more useful,less expensive and more convenient. Books, especially the books of the library of a university, content much technology information which is only used by people in a special major. In another word, only few people can understand what the major books are talking about, so most of the students cannot benefit from this kind of books. Besides, major books are always pricey, buying this kind of books can be a large amount of money. However, computers are totally different. With a computer, students can find any books they want through the Internet since the Internet is so convenient nowadays. Besides, using computers are also good for the administrator of the library, as they don’t need to put the books back where they should be after students’ borrowing. This is really boring and hard work. I used to be a volunteer helping arrange the books. Although there’s a bar code on each book, it was still difficult for me to find where I should put them. I once carried ten books go upstairs to the sixth floor only to find that all these books should be given to the first floor. How upset I was at that time. So considering the school’s administration, computers are a better choice than books.

On the other hand, when it comes to students, I also think that computers are much more useful than books. It is no question that books contain a lot of knowledge and information. So does the Internet, what’s more, comparing with the books containing only writing and some pictures, online classes give the students chances to communicate with teachers and other students; online discussion let the students learn more ideas about the same opinion which can not be afforded by books. When I was preparing my essay, I had to read lots of passages and found out enough information. I used to do this using the books in the library. It took me much time finding where the books are. However, when I got my computer, I started searching the information on the Internet and communicated with diverse people through the net to find better topics. As I mentioned above, computers are much better than books.

As a conclusion, it is better to buying computers for students than buying books for library not only for students but also for school administrators.
