What to consider when shopping for New Laptops

Laptops offer a convenient and efficient way to get things done when mobility is a concern. They are versatile, compact and are well suited to a person who needs it for typing or game play purposes. If you are considering buying a laptop, you may find that you are completely flooded with choice. Here are some important things to consider when shopping for New Laptops.

The extensive variety of features, sizes and prices on offer to a buyer can make the process even more difficult and that’s is why it is so important to pinpoint your individual needs before you spend good money on purchasing New Laptops.

  1. Firstly you need to decide which platform is best suited to you. You will have to decide between Windows, Mac or Chrome OS. Windows offers an extremely flexible system for its users and it is also the most commonly used operating system. The notebooks offered by Windows afford buyers a variety of features such as touch screen capability, fingerprint identification and dual graphics chips. Windows also provides access to a huge number of desktop applications and programs.
  2. Secondly you must decide if you would like a standard laptop or a laptop that is convertible. Many of the New Laptops currently on offer, provide users with the option to choose between the tablet and clamshell modes. ‘2-in-1s’ as they are commonly known, are available in two different classes, detachable (where the screen can be detached from the keyboard) and flexible (where the screen can fold back up to 360 degrees). Bend-backs are better if your priority is use the device as a laptop, while detachables are better suited for the experience of using a tablet.
  3. Thirdly, you need to select the size best suited to your needs. Laptop sizes range and you will have to choose between 11-12 inch, 13-14 inch, 15 inch and 17-18 inch products. 11-12 inch laptops provide the thinnest, most lightweight experience for users. 13-14 inches offers a good balance between usability and portability. 15 inch laptops have large screens but are heavier and not as compact, making mobility a central issue when owning a laptop of this size. 17-18 inch laptops offer the user a great deal of processing power making them a viable option for gamers and those requiring a high level of workplace efficiency.
  4. After you have narrowed down the first three points, you will have to consider the specs you require. Pay close attention to CPU, RAM, the size of the storage drive, display capabilities, graphics chip, DVD drives, USB ports and battery life.
  5. The next step is to plan your budget. New Laptops can cost anywhere upwards of R3000 and that is why it is important to consider how much you are willing to spend on your purchase.
  6. The last thing you should do before deciding which laptop to buy is to consider the brand. Technical support offered by the manufacturer and a comparison of the brands is an important factor in user satisfaction and you should do a little bit of investigating before making a final decision.
