How Much Money Should I Spend on a Laptop?

So, you want to buy a new laptop in 2020, but you’re not sure on how much to spend on it. Are you looking for a gaming laptop or something more portable? Are you going to be working on the go? There are many factors that play into the decision and we’re going to help in this article.

Laptops are an indispensable part of our lives today. Have you been in your local retail store and wondered, “How much money should I spend on a laptop?” If so we have some great news for you. This article will not only help you save time but also money when buying a laptop.

For a basic kids laptop, there are models of laptop that have eMMC flash storage technology so that means the computer memory will be slower than usual but it should work fine for basic uses such as watching movies and surfing the Internet. When gaming, your graphics may not be as good as higher models, but it is perfect if you are looking for something affordable.

A lot of people ask me what is the best laptop by price and there really isn’t a perfect solution for them, but we can tell you three specs that if you don’t want anything special then your money is better spent on these three specs. RAM, storage, and battery life. Usually 64 gigabytes of flash storage, 4 gb of ram (memory) and around 4 or 5 hours of battery life will get you pretty far depending on what you are using it for.

If you are looking for something a little bit on the high side then a good laptop should run Windows 10, have a minimum memory of 10-32 GB depending on the amount of RAM you want, a CPU speed from 1.6 GHZ to 2.2 GHZ, and at least an Intel HD graphics chip which will help with video watching and gaming. And lastly, laptops usually have up to 1 TB in storage capacity (Hard Disk Drive). These are the basics to look for when purchasing a brand-new laptop.
