Things to consider while buying a laptop
First of all, size (screen size and weight) of the device is a big issue. Generally, laptops come in the range between 11.6 to 17.3 inches. It is always a good idea to go for a mid-range laptop but the preferred size and weight also greatly depends on the user’s work. For a light and slim device, a person can choose Ultrabook or smaller windows laptops which favor mobility over high-end performance. By contrast, traditional clamshell & gaming laptops are bulkier but boast significantly higher specs. In the middle of the scale, we have Notebooks which provide a right balance between size and performance.
Screen quality is also a factor to consider when buying a laptop. Many laptops today provide touch screens. Although useful in many cases, the touchscreen also means a glossy and reflective display. So, it is best to avoid them if the user wants a reflection-free experience. This fact is especially important for gaming and image or video editing. Usually, screen resolution of 1920x1080-pixel (Full HD) is most optimum for the general user. If the user is a gamer, then a look at the refresh rate of the screen can prove to be the right decision. A faster refresh rate means a smoother and more responsive gaming experience.
In terms of CPU, it is best to stick with intel core processors, i.e. Intel Core i3, i5, & i7. These systems provide the best performance with multitasking and multimedia tasking. Low-end products incorporate Core i5 processors whereas most mainstream laptops have Core i5 processors. Core i7 processors are included in the more expensive devices which are much more powerful than the other laptops. Gamers, on the other hand, can try out the Ryzen Mobile CPU from AMD which provide much better gaming experience paired with ADM’s Vega graphics chipsets.
RAM is another piece of hardware that any buyer needs to consider when getting a new laptop. For any user today, the best policy is to get a device with 8GB RAM. In case of gamers and power-users, that figure should be bumped up to 16GB or 32GB. In terms of storage capacity, it is best to choose a laptop that offers 500GB or more. As for battery life, it is always a good idea to choose a laptop with a higher battery capacity.
