Windows

Windows is initiated with good graphic interference. It is the first invented server used in the computers back in 1953.

Chrome books are similar to the windows and MacBook, but the main role of this laptop is google chrome. Just like window 10, it has a taskbar and you can drag your documents as well but you can not function more without an internet connection. You can just search out things, check your emails but can not play games, it’s relatively not made up for the game lovers because of its less storage.

To choose the size of the screen is the choice of an individual. Small screens are light in weight and easier to carry rather than the large screen has some other abilities. The screen differs from 11inches to 16 inches with different prices and brands. 11 to 12 inches comprises light and easy to carry with you anywhere. 15 inches screen laptops are the one mostly used as it’s of the size and the functions it carries.

The arrow keys should be responsive enough to be used at once or in dim light. The size of the keys should be fair enough to be used.

SPECS

The main features you want in a laptop are:

CPU

The central processing unit is known as the brain of the laptop. If you click on something, the brain will tell what to do, so choosing a laptop CPU is the main consult. Intel core processing is the one running your computer and helps in multitasking. You can choose from the core i3 is basically found in the beginners’ system. Core i5 is the next level of it and mostly used. Core i7 is used by the one who is working and wants the best from their laptop.

RAM

The most important thing in the laptop is RAM. Some years ago, save doesn’t matter. It was 8 GB before, but now 32 GB is the hit and you are gamer then go for 64 GB. The more the RAM the more price it will have.

Storage

Storage is the foremost part of a good laptop you are investing in. But now everyone looks for the internal storage SSD rather than the portable hard disks. The internal storage did not affect the speed of the laptop and it does not hang.

Display

In modern times, the resolution of a display is as much important as the storage. Some laptops still have low-resolution displays but if you want to see something in good colors then invest in for.

Graphic chip

It is high time for some good graphics to be seen. But, if you are fond of games then you should be in need of a special graphic chip AMD. It has two qualities with high and low.

Ports

The more the ports, the better the laptop it is. The 3 USB port and the port for HDMI for video. If there is a c type port then it’s a good advantage that it can be connected to any of the adapters.




BATTERY LIFE

What is it, if the battery is not good for the thing you invested in? If you are 24/7 working on the laptop then the battery of the laptop should be 8 hours plus. But if you just use it weekly then nothing to worry about. Don’t believe in the box, just look out for the reviews by different resources and then chose your laptop.

BUDGET

Find something that comes under your budget. This is the time, where you can find inexpensive as well as the most expensive laptops in the market. If you just want a notebook to check emails and stalk on Facebook, then it is for $200. The more specs you see the higher the price it will have. But it’s up to you to find out the best laptop for yourself with all the specs.

This is just the theory about the guideline of buying a laptop but you will get the one by exploring around.
