Everyone needs a laptop just like a mobile, whether you’re a student or businessman or employee or busy housewife or a retired guy, not to mention a professional techie! And what’s new? , our humble laptop has grown into a sleek, lightweight, any-weather friendly, super fast and economic asset of millions of laptoppers!
Let’s dive into the ABCDs of laptop selection-
Brand value or name: HP, Apple, Dell, Asus, Toshiba, Acer, etc offer a huge range of laptops but it’s upto you to decide on which one if you have already created a brand preference or else pick a popularly selling brand.
Processor: The brain of your laptop needs to be the latest one – Intel Core Processor. Don’t burn your pocket yet get the best deal for an Intel core i5. i7 will cost a bit more.
Processor speed:your laptop must have the commendable range of speed of 1.7 GHz to 2.2 GHz. A higher range is needed by a techie for high-performance programming. High-end, discrete graphics processing units are terrific for 3D games, transcoding 1080p video, or watching Blu-ray movies, but like fast processors, they also feast on laptop batteries. AMD Enduro, Nvidia Optimus, Apple AGS stretch battery life for gaming and programming.
Storage:the hard disk memory capacity must be between 250 GB to 500 GB. Your laptop RAM must be of 4 GB to 8 GB.
Connectivity: The must-haves for better connectivity are Bluetooth for connecting wireless peripherals, and Internet connectivity with Wi-Fi or an advanced Wi-Di. USB 3.0 offers greater bandwidth and faster data transfer than USB 2.0. USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 have a promising extra performance from peripherals like hard drives and chargers. For those who like to enjoy movies on DVD or Blu-ray, you can still find external drives & are easy to use as built-in drives.
Resolution and screen size:the ideal screen size is 11 inches to 17 inches. Choose the resolution to be at least 1920 x 1080 full HD, the higher the better!
Remember these key points plus an extended warranty on parts and maintenance is always preferred. HAPPY ‘LAPTOPPING’!
