Portable computers allow you to use away from your desk or office. Throw in good performance and these systems become a big part of people’s daily lives. Even the cheapest units now can meet all requirements of daily work.
Are you almost ready now to buy laptop computer?
There are a few things you need to consider. Read on to find out.
Installed memory. The greater installed memory, the more applications you can run. It is trickier to upgrade a notebook’s memory than that of a desktop so make sure your unit is pre-installed with all you need. Units with 2GB of RAM are optimal and if you are running Windows Vista, upgrade to 3GB of RAM or more for a 64 bit OS.
Processor. An important factor to consider when buying a laptop computer is the processor. The speed of a notebook in running applications is determined by the CPU. Core Duo and Core Duo 2 are good for quick processing. Atom processors are only for low cost netbooks so choose according to your needs.
Screen size. With bigger screen, you get maximum resolution and you can view more information at once. Most notebooks are wide-screened and if you require one with a standard aspect screen, you will need to do some research. newer 16 inch screened models provide ideal resolution for viewing high definition videos while on the go.
Screen coating. Are you able to see images and text clearly when viewing them in daylight? A lot of notebooks that appear sharp on store shelves may not be easy to work with while in a coffee shop or outdoors. So when you buy laptop computer, consider as well where you plan to use it.
