Laptop Buying Guide To The Rescue

Feb 20, 2008
Congratulations! You have just landed on the right page to guide you on what you need to know when buying your first laptop. It is going to be a purchase directly out of your pocket and you definitely want to invest it in good terms. Identify your purpose for buying; there are several reasons but ask, how often do you plan to use it and what purpose will you mainly use it for? Is it for personal or business use? When you do that, get all information to know about the brand, their reputation, your options, warranty, rewards, guarantees and the customer service. When all of those are at hand, it's time to look into the important features that you would want to upgrade, develop or improve to prolong its use and make real good use of it.

MEMORY

This is where all your computer's applications are stored and perhaps the most significant feature that you would want to upgrade if necessary. Increasing the memory will help increase your laptop's duration of existence. Check up to how much you can expand the memory, you should have at least 1GB for storage.

HARD DRIVE

Interested with videos and music? Who's not? This is the part of the laptop where folders and files reside. A huge amount of space means lots of videos that you can enjoy to watch during your free time and lots of music that you can listen to when you're bored. There are several devices like flash drives to back these files up but it wont hurt to have just enough space but if you have a huge amount, be thankful.

PROCESSOR

The processor helps your programs to speed up. Speedier processors are available which are also developed to be multi-performing. This consideration is crucial when you initially decide to buy your laptop and while you're getting information for the kind of laptop that you need, check what will best suit your needs without hurting your pocket because compared to memory, there is no upgrading on this.

SCREEN

This part comes in sizes with different definitions. A 17 inch screen can substitute your desktop, carry it wherever you go. A 15 inch is all-around and price wise and the 14 inch absolutely portable. Check for characteristics that allow vividness and brightness. Get one that tops on quality.

DISK DRIVE

This is the laptop's device for data writing and reading. Heard of CD or DVD drives or CD or DVD burners? This is what it's all about. If you plan to store a number of programs, the latter is best. If you want to store data from a separate source so you can play it somewhere else, then, go for the drives.

BATTERY

Don't want to be stuck to the wall? This is important for a user who has planned to use the laptop anytime, anywhere. Larger number of battery cells which can reach until 12 means longer use without sticking to the wall.

Choosing isn't really that hard. If in doubt, take your time and make it your best purchase ever.
