A Buyers Guide on Choosing the Right Laptop

With the growing increase in laptop brands and the developments in technology, choosing the right laptop to purchase has never been more complicated. There are a number of factors to be considered when making this important decision. Some of them are but not limited to:

While it may not be a requirement for everybody, it is important to consider how easy it is to travel with your laptop. If you are someone who will be constantly using your laptop on the go, you will need to ensure it is portable and easy to travel with. The weight and size of the laptop is the main feature to consider when considering portability. However, it is important to remember that sometimes small laptops like ‘netbooks’ will sacrifice performance levels to make them lighter and more portable.

Battery Life
This is also extremely important as the most annoying thing about a laptop is not being able to use it without a power source because the battery life is too low. It is always advisable to get a 9 cell battery instead of 6 cell if you want a longer backup time. Ideally you should be looking to purchase a laptop with a minimum battery backup of 4 hours.

How will you use your laptop? Ask yourself this question before jumping into a purchase as it will heavily influence your decision. For example, if you want to use it to do a lot of gaming or video editing, you will obviously need a laptop with at least 4GB of RAM and a high-functioning processor like Core i7. If you only need it to perform simple tasks such as emailing or word processing, you would be more suited to a lower configuration.


You must also remember that certain brands are more suited to people than others. For example:

Apple Laptops are generally high end models. While they may be expensive, you will find that you get what you pay for. They are often very portable, easy to use and Apple often offer excellent customer support.

Acer Laptops have gained the reputation of being the best budget laptops in the market. They are often known as the ‘value for money’ laptops with their comparatively low price tags. You can find a variety of Acer Laptops at Argos.

Dell Laptops frequently receive high scores for their elegant looks, robust performance and outstanding on-site support by Dell team which make users interested in gaming and media a perfect fit for them (especially the Alienware range). You can also custom configure your own laptop on their site and order online.

HP Laptops are well known for offering a wide range of laptops that will suit a wide array of users. Because of this vast range, everybody can consider a HP laptop according to their use when making their purchase.

Lenovo surprised many people when they finished just behind Apple in 2nd position for Laptopmag’s best laptop brand. With their excellent tech support, aggressive pricing and great looks, any user could be happy with one of their laptops.
