Things to Consider Before you Buy a Laptop

Shopping for laptops can be a frustrating experience at times. A laptop is an individual’s most personal device. This choice is as much about lifestyle as it is about the features that matter to you. The only way to find your perfect match is to compare your specific needs with the myriad of available choices. This article throws light on some of the factors that are critical in making the right decision.

An important thing to keep in mind while buying a laptop is that there is no single laptop that can satisfy every need. You need to find a compromise, and it is usually a device that offers the best performance for the price you pay. There are tons of things to consider when buying a laptop such as processor type, company’s reputation, life of warranty etc. It is hard to name one specific brand or model as the best laptop in the world.

When buying a laptop, there are few questions which you should ask yourself. One of them is how portable you want your laptop to be. The weight and size of the laptop is one of the most important factors to consider when buying one. Laptops with larger screens are usually heftier and heavier and might make portability an issue. Another thing that you should keep in mind is how important the display quality is for you. If you are looking for something that allows you to produce high-quality graphics, this is something which might be worth spending more on.

As a general rule, we recommend choosing a laptop that has at least 4-8 GB of DDR4 RAM and an SSD hard drive. If you’re looking for Windows based laptops, then there are several good brands. Most HP and Lenovo laptops have high quality screens and build quality, so they are good. Asus on the other hand, are not so good with built quality but their laptops are also acceptible. Dell’s XPS series laptops are excellent. They come equipped with some really powerful specs. All these companies make high-end laptops, you do not need to go for mid-range laptops like HP Stream.

A Few More Tips For Buying A Laptop

  • If you are tech savvy, you can get a laptop with DOS. You can always install the Windows 10 Insider Preview through an ISO file. The Insider Preview is fully-featured, fully-functional version of Windows 10. This way you will save money as well as avoid the crap that laptop sellers install on their computers.
  • Unless you absolutely need it, a laptop without DVD drive is perfectly fine. DVD drive is, anyways, a technology that is dying.
  • More number of cells means better battery life, although it also depends a lot on the other components in a laptop.
  • Ideally, go for a laptop that feels durable in hands and less plasticky, although budget plays a big role.
