A power surge destroyed the power supply on my computer. I bought a new laptop and was wondering if a laptop is a good replacement.

Depends on what you use your PC for, if you want to chat, watch videos, maybe play some non intensive games, then yeah a laptop can do that.

If you do any serious stuff, then no.

Also, replacing a power supply in a desktop is cheap.

I'll just pretend you are serious about that question.

Yes, you can copy files with a laptop to USB or SD cards. The laptop will do that fine.
