Technology has attained the power to throw thousands of options right on your face and making you ill with this-or-that syndrome.

  • Ask yourself

 Are you looking for a model that can cope up with day-to-day tasks such as browsing the web, word processing and basic picture editing? Or do you want a more powerful laptop that can whiz through more demanding tasks such as editing film or playing advanced games? Decide what you want to do with your laptop and come to a conclusion. Half of your problem is solved here.

 

  •  3 wonders

 There are three major classes of laptops these days: netbooks, thin-and-light/ultraportables, and notebooks proper (common laptops).

Netbooks are tiny and generally underpowered; useful only for moderate Web surfing and some word processing. A major benefit is that netbooks tend to have outstanding battery life. The Intel Atom processor powers them, and they’re very portable. While they’re only useful for basic tasks and are thus undesirable as primary machines, they are excellent companions for taking notes in class or just keeping up while on the road.

Thin-and-light notebooks use low voltage and ultra low voltage processors from Intel and AMD, and are designed to strike a balance between a netbook’s high battery life and mobility and a notebook’s broad range of uses. Like mainstream notebooks, their processors are fully-featured but clocked low to reduce heat and power consumption. As a result, they tend to have thinner body, more portable, and often produce very reasonable battery life. Often this class of laptops uses AMD Athlon Neo processors or Intel Core 2 processors.

And at last the mainstream notebooks. They employ a broad range of processors and configurations, and hit an array of different price points, sizes and uses. If you need a high performance processor, this is the class that you’re going to be interested in.

 

  • Specifications

 Have an insight of the specifications of the laptop. Its screen/display size, Processor, RAM, hard drive, accessories, network connectivity, graphics card, And Operating system etc. should be thoroughly studied before jumping into any conclusion.

Note: You can’t upgrade laptop graphics (There are only a few laptops in the world in which you can). So decide carefully if you need a graphics card or not.

 

  • Budget

 Pricing of laptops is based on the configurations and design. A Macbook Pro will obviously cost much higher than Dell inspiron because of its superior quality and performance. Fix the maximum and minimum amount that you can afford and select the best in it.

 

  • Always try before you use

Using the laptop you’ve chosen to buy will be an intelligent step. Go to an electronics store and try your hand in it. Play with it and see if you feel comfortable in using it. Do it especially when you are buying the device online where you do not have access to the physical laptop.

Make the best choice. Buy it when you need it and make the best choice.
