Kindly follow these 10 important guides if you want to buy your dream laptop that will
meet your needs and get work done easily.
- Budget: This is the most important factor which will ultimately determine the buying of the laptop. It is important to note that money is a measure of value, therefore, there may be need to adjust your budget if necessary in order to suit your laptop specifications/needs.
- Processor (CPU): Processor (CPU) is the main part of a laptop or computer system
which defines the speed of processing any task in a particular system. Failure to check
or consider the CPU could end up with a PC that takes seven to eight minutes to fully
boot into Windows. When selecting a laptop, buy a model with a CPU tailored to the
rigors of mobile computing. If you want to surf the web, play latest games, edit videos or
process intensive task then all you need is a powerful processor.
- RAM (Random Access Memory): RAM or Random Access Memory is the physical
memory of any computer system which helps in speeding up the processing of the
application. For smooth operation of all tasks, it’s recommended to have a laptop with at
least 4GB RAM. If you want to do heavy processing tasks like video editing and
graphics designing your laptop really needs 8GB RAM or 16GB RAM.
- Hard Disk Drive: Hard Disk Drive will keep all of your data including docs, software,
videos, images, and other system files. How much hard drive space you need is another
big important question. If you want your system to perform the task in a fraction of
seconds then the HDD should be in the range of 500GB to 1TB depending on the
- Screen Size & Type: The screen size of the laptop should be determined by the
reason for which you are buying the laptop. Most of today’s laptops come with a
minimum screen size of 14.1 inches. If you watch movies and playing games on laptop
a lot then it is better to buy a laptop with a bigger screen of 17 inches but if it is for
casual computing task like web surfing and office work, 14.1 or 15.6 inches are enough.
If you are getting a laptop for your children in college, you should go for 11.6 inches for
portability. The HD screen with anti-glare features will enable you to watch movie with
HD resolution. If you want a touch screen laptop, you can easily get one in the budget
range. Touch-screen helps you to navigate on any screen with ease.
- Design: Design of a laptop is also one of the important things to consider when
buying a laptop. Nowadays, everyone wants a laptop with slim design, low-weight and
high portability. Recently, HP x360 convertible laptops have become fast selling in the
market because of the lovely compact design with flip capability. The design of a laptop
also impacts its price.
- Graphics Processor: If you are a graphic designer, pure game lover or love to watch
HD & Full HD Videos on your laptop then GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) will play an
important role. Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) will take the entire graphics processing
task on it. Most of latest Intel Core Processors have got integrated & powerful graphics
unit and can perform any graphics intensive task with ease.
- Battery: Battery capacity is another deciding factor of buying a laptop. As the laptop
is a portable device so it should have decent battery life to work anywhere. A laptop with
poor battery-life will always interrupt your work. Most of the low-price laptop comes with
6-cell batteries. Still battery life depends on the usage of laptop and how well you
maintain it. A basic 6-cell laptop battery should give at least a minimum of 4 hours of
backup. Modern processor allows the battery to get to its maximum backup as they take
- Operating System: Most PCs come preloaded with Microsoft’s consumer operating
system. Deploying PCs powered by Windows XP Home or Vista Home Basic might not
appear problematic, at least at first. In many cases, it may even appear beneficial. Why
pay for the more expensive business edition if all you really need to do is write
documents, crunch spreadsheets, send and receive e-mail, and use the Internet?
As so many organizations and users have discovered in the real world, the business
versions of Microsoft’s operating system offer many features that may well become
necessities down the road. Many clients have found the migration from a workgroup
environment to a client-server system complicated by the need to purchase new
Windows XP Professional or Vista Business licenses (not to mention the time and cost
associated with upgrading each user computer).

things to consider when buying a laptop. Laptops are electronic device that buyers need
