Tips on Buying a New Laptop

Aug 2, 2008
Laptop computers have been around for years now and are quickly gaining popularity. This is mainly because it is nice to have a computer wherever you go and not have to lug around a bulky monitor and tower. It is so easy to do business and know that just because it is a laptop does not mean that it cannot do the same things that a desktop computer can do. Therefore, if you are looking to buy a new laptop computer there are a few things you need to consider before hand.

When you are looking at a laptop on a store shelf you may want to know how much it weighs and how big it is. There should be a tag to tell you all the information you need to know but if there isn't you should ask for help by a store employee. You will want to make sure that its size and weight will fit in fine with your life. If you travel a lot you will want something lighter but if you do not plan on carrying it around all the time the weight shouldn't be an issue.

Are you looking for a specific brand or specific specs for your new computer? There are many different brand name computers out there on the market today such as Dell, HP, Acer and Toshiba. All of the brands are excellent but some can be more expensive than others. Also you will want to make sure that the computer you choose have the specs you need. If you plan on saving a lot of pictures or videos you will need a big hard drive, if you plan on playing games you will need great graphics, etc.

Before you rush out to the store or jump online you will want to know how much you are willing to spend on your new laptop. You need to create a budget allowing a few hundred more just in case you find the one you want and it is more than you thought you were spending. You should be prepared to spend anywhere from $400 and up for a good laptop. Just a tip, building your own laptop will cost much more than just buying a pre-built computer.

Last but not least, make sure that a laptop is what you really want. Many people go looking for the perfect laptop only to find that it is a desktop they need instead. Desktops are known to have higher specs than laptops but most people like laptops because you can take them anywhere with you. Just be absolutely sure you know exactly what you want before you spend the money on a laptop just to find out you needed something different.

Now you should be ready to go out and buy or stay home and order online, which is where you are likely to get the best deals. Make sure you shop around before you hand over any money, you do not want to buy a laptop for $700 only to find out it was $600 at a different store or website.
