Things to Consider Before Buying A Laptop

Most laptops used by a large percent of Laptop users runs on Windows. Though there are several OS a person can use in their PC's which maybe Kali Linux, Mac Os etc. and I'm sure that despite the hard and unfavorable situation of things in the country now, we must strive and make things better for ourselves, make our lives comfortable.

Some of us might decide to get a new gadget for ourselves or for our dear ones. Whichever the case might be, I want to use this medium to enlighten us on some things we should take into consideration while purchasing a laptop.  
1. Size and Portability: If portability and size are your main concern, then you should consider a Notebook that has a small screen and is light weighed. Any laptop marketed as an Ultrabook should fit your pocket, as they are designed to be sleek, slim and light



2. Screen Size & Quality: I'm sure you don't wanna be at your laptop for many hours every day and finds it difficult to read the contents on the screen. So make sure to get a laptop with a screen that is comfortable to look at from any angle. Many laptops these days also have touchscreens, which are really cool and can be used to perform most works faster instead of the traditional means of using a keyboard. But touchscreens can also be glossy. Glossy screens may lead to reflections, so in some cases, it wouldn't hurt to consider a laptop that doesn’t have a touchscreen with a resolution of about 1920x1080-pixel resolution (aka Full HD).

3. Try not to buy blind: If possible, go into a store, see the product you are buying for yourself. Inspect properly and thoroughly.


4. Keyboard Quality: You should inspect the keyboard properly because they do come in handy during long typing sessions. You must get a laptop that has a comfortable keyboard. It should be well spaced and comfortable layout with full-sized keys and some space around the arrow keys. They should be snappy n responsiveness when you type and when you let them go. It is not a must that it should be also back-lighted, (But a back-lighted keyboard is cool) as they assist you typing and gives an easier view on the keys in dimly light environments.

5. CPU & Storage Capacity: Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 are the CPUs I know which offer the best performance when it comes to multitasking and multimedia tasks. Core i3-based notebooks are generally found in entry-level systems, while Core e i5 makes up the majority of mainstream computers. 
     Core i7-based systems are for those of you who want the best performance from your laptop. However, note that with a Core i7-based system, heat coming through the base of the laptop can be cause for concern.

As for Ram Space, you need at least 4GB RAM for 32bit operating system (and Above for 64bit OS) to get the best out of your system. More free RAM space allows for more applications to be running at the same time (Multi-tasking). Also, make sure you don't get a laptop with a hard disk storage capacity of 500GB

6.  DVD Drives: Not all laptops come with optical drives, because most contents like software, kinds of Music, Games, Movies etc are downloadable from the net without much stress. However, if you really need to read/write discs and your laptop of choice don't come with a built-in DVD drive, you can always buy an external one that connects it to your PC via USB.

7.  Battery Capacity: If you are in a place where electricity is never a problem, or you're buying large, bulky notebook that you'll be using only on a desk near an outlet, you don't have to worry about battery life. However, if you plan to frequently use the laptop on your lap, or someplace not close to a power outlet, (even if it's at home and/or work) you'll want at least 6 hours of battery capacity, with 8+ hours being ideal. To determine a notebook's expected battery life, don't take the manufacturer's word for it. Instead, read third-party results from objective sources, such as our reviews, or you can ask around for people who has been using the product before you.
