All you need to know about Laptops

Laptops/notebooks and tablets come in a variety of different forms. A powerful and efficient, laptop can deliver all the important functions that a PC computer can, but in a more portable and versatile fashion by combining all the components of a desktop computer.


How to choose my Laptop?

The specifications and features of your laptop should depend on the purpose for your laptop, whether it may be for gaming, business or home use. For the latter two purposes, tablets, ultrabooks and Chromebooks can be appropriate. Ultrabooks are designed to have less bulk and a sustainable battery life by using solid-state drives (SSD) and efficient Intel Core ‘U’ processors; however due to their limited size, these devices tend to omit some typical laptop features such as optical disc drives, full-size USB and Ethernet ports. The latest ultrabooks feature 8th Gen quad-core Intel Core ‘U’ processors which are significantly faster than previous generation processors. First developed by Google, Chromebooks are a type of laptop that run Chrome OS as its operating system and are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet. Additionally, touchscreen laptops are also a viable option, as well as hybrid laptop designs that can also be operated as tablets. Microsoft Surface devices offer a flagship hybrid/convertible laptop and tablet experience.


If you want to game, gaming laptops offer the performance you need. Gaming laptops feature components, such as a strong processor, graphics card, and RAM or memory. These are crucial to run the graphically intensive and demanding games of today, and hence, are usually more expensive than the aforementioned notebooks. Gaming laptops can also offer the performance needed for content creation, video editing and CAD or other 3D design work. Gaming laptops are typically larger and heavier than ultrabooks and can sometimes also have shorter battery life, so you should consider how these factors may impact you. If you are willing to pay a price premium, some gaming laptops such as the Razer Blade, Asus Zephyrus and Gigabyte Aero series offer portability and battery life that can rival leading ultrabooks without losing gaming performance.


All in all, there are a few common things you need to consider before purchasing any type of laptop.  These include OS (Operating System), size (most popular sizes include 11", 13", 15" and 17"), CPU, RAM, Hard Drive, SSDs (Solid State Drives), display, graphics chip, ports/connectivity and battery life.
