How to Choose a Laptop?
In our opinion, the best laptops are not the most powerful ones or the most expensive ones. The best laptop must be the one that fits your needs most at every aspect. If you simply rely on a laptop to check emails, browse the Internet and listen to music, that buying a entry-level laptops will cover all your needs, why bother to spend extra money for the function you will never use? Or you are using your laptops to edit video, design graphics or play high-end 3D games, and you’ll need to choose the right device with large hard drive, high performance GPU, plenty RAM and a powerful processor.
So, first of all, to understand what you will do with a laptop.
Second, set the criteria to evaluate laptop computers
Performance: The CPU is always the first thing to consider, a fast and powerful processor will always be a price booster. Now the latest and greatest processor is Intel Core i7, 4th generation of the Core series. So to balance your cost, you should consider how much power you really need.
If you’re a dvanced gaming, powerful graphics is essential. So choose a discrete graphics card will make your device capable to run the high-end 3D games. RAM is to store applications and data you are currently accessing, so with more memory in your laptop, the more applications will your laptop run at the same time. As now most of the laptops have equipped with Windows 7 or Windows 8 operation system, we recommend to choose the RAM not less than 4GB.
For the storage, there are now two choices for the customers, the tradition Hard drive (HDD) and a solid-state drive (SSD). HDDs offer more storage spaces that SSD, but SSD are more anti-crashes than HDDs for they have no moving parts. And if you choose the SSD that means more money would spend on this part.
Speaking about battery life, we consider this to be very important criteria if your laptops will need to be operated in travel most of the time. The longest battery life in our best laptops can around 9 hours on a single charge, for most of the users a battery life for more than 7 hours can be a good choice. But don’t consider this part in a gaming laptop, for most of the gaming laptop, at around 4 hours battery life has been a good performance.
Design：There is an irony in the laptops, they are designed for portability, but once the laptop to be small and light enough and we will find it to be less powerful and full-featured. So choosing a laptop you should to balance the design and the performance. If you prefer your laptop to do as a desktop, your laptop will be larger and heavy, without compromising the power and features, but if portability is your first choice, so take consider the body size and weight in the first place in your choice, the laptop should be light and small enough for your carring.
Connectivity：The laptop offers several connection options, like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, are now normal connectivity. With Wi-Fi you can connect to internet without bother by wires, and with Bluetooth you can connect with some wireless device, such as Bluetooth earphone and keyboard. Other connect ports like HDMI, VGA, and important USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 also have their important functions.
