All laptops and computers ordered and paid for by 6 pm on the 28th of October will have 10% off.
So, speaking of… The top 10 things to consider when choosing a new laptop. Some information here will also apply when choosing your computer components.
- They say size doesn’t matter 😉. That, is, however wrong when looking for a laptop! The most common laptops sold are 15.6 inches. Pick a size that fits with your workstyle.
- The more pixels in your display the better looking the image will be. Try for a minimum of 1920 x 1080 or more commonly known as Full HD. Higher end laptops will have many more pixels, up to 4K. This might sound amazing, but this will consume more battery life.
- The CPU is your laptops literal brains and defiantly don’t go cheap on this component! The minimum I suggest is an i5.
- RAM is basically the short-term memory of your computer. This means how many, for example, Windows tabs can you have open before the laptop starts slowing down. Look for 8GB.
- Your budget matters as well. You’re not going to get a powerful, amazing laptop for $200, ya’know? Unfortunately, all the higher end specs cost more and depending on how powerful you want the laptop to be so expect at least $1100 for a decent laptop.
- The amount of storage is important as well, but not as much as the others. Opt for a solid-state drive (SSD) over a hard drive. This means you’re looking at over 3 times the speed then a laptop with a hard drive. We recommend 512GB for internal storage.
- USB ports are important! You’d want at least 2.
- If you plan on carting your laptop around with you, look into having a large battery life, ideally of 9+ hours so you don’t necessarily need to carry the heavy charger around as well.
