Laptop Buying Guide

There are so many laptops on the market at the moment that it can sometimes be difficult to tell the good from the bad. Before you start looking for a laptop, ask yourself these two questions:

What will you be using the laptop for?
Do you need a laptop for general web browsing or do you want to use it more for gaming or something similar? If you only want to check emails and so on then you should get away with buying a cheap laptop but if you want to do other things like playing games or editing videos then you'll need a much better laptop.

Where will you be using the laptop?
If you need a laptop for college or work then you'll want to have a lightweight laptop so that you can carry it around with you without too much hassle. However, if you'll only be using it at home then you won't have to worry about having a heavy laptop (heavy laptops are usually cheaper!).

There are a few different types of laptops, and we're going to go through them so you have a better understanding of them. Here they are:

Cheap Laptop – As the name suggests, these laptops are perfect for people who are on a tight budget. These laptops are perfectly fine to look at photos, browse the web and so on but they won't be able to handle anything else like playing games. The great thing about cheap laptops is that since they usually don't have a lot of features they are very light, which is great for children so that they can bring it with them wherever they go. Cheap laptops are also good as a person's first laptop since you won't want to spend a fortune if it's their first laptop just like you wouldn't buy a Ferrari for someone that has just started to learn how to drive!

Ultraportable Laptop – These laptops are for people who travel around on a daily basis whether it's to college, to work etc. As well as this, many ultraportable laptops have a very good battery life so you'll very rarely have to charge it – perfect for people that are always on the move. Ultrabooks are probably your best option at the moment when it comes to ultraportable laptops, but they don't come cheap.

Multimedia Laptop – If you've got a big budget for a laptop then you might want to consider getting a multimedia laptop. On these laptops you'll be able to do just about anything, such as watching movies, playing games, editing videos and so on. The only downside about these laptops is that they are usually quite bulky but that's because there is so many features built in to the laptop. It's pretty much like having a desktop computer really; apart from the fact that it's obviously a lot more portable.

Family Laptop – Family laptops are like an upgrade to the cheap laptops. While they mightn't be able to handle games or anything like that, you'll still be able to do most things that a family would want to do. They mightn't be the most powerful laptops but for a family's needs it should be fine. The good thing about these laptops is that it'll be pretty cheap (although more expensive than the cheap laptops that we previously mentioned).

Now that you know the difference between the different types of laptops that you can buy, we're going to mention some of the features that you should look out for when buying a laptop. They include:

Hard Drive – The amount of hard drive space tells you how much you can store on your laptop. The more you can store the better, although some people mightn't need to store a lot of files on their laptop. You should only worry about how much space there is on your hard drive if you store videos, music and pictures. Otherwise you should be fine. Try to get at least 320GB if you can and then you'll more than likely never run out of space.

RAM – RAM stands for random access memory which sounds more confusing than it actually is. RAM is another form of memory, but this time this memory is for storing small amounts of information such as: a word document that you have open but you haven't saved yet. The RAM is used to keep this data on the laptop for you until you save it. Just like when it comes to the hard drive, the more RAM you have the better! 2GB or 3GB should be more than enough for most people these days.

Processor – The processor is one of the most important things in a laptop, it's essentially the brain of a computer. If the processor is good then the laptop will be very fast, while if the processor isn't great then the laptop might be slow and laggy. Nowadays you can get a laptop with an Intel i3 processor without spending too much which is a very good processor, but it depends on what you'll be using the laptop for really.

Battery Life – Depending on what you'll be using the laptop for, battery life might be very important to you. If you're always going to be at home on your laptop then you don't really have to think about battery life, otherwise try your best to get a laptop that can last at least 4 or 5 hours. If battery life is important to you and you've got a bit of money to spend then we'd recommend taking a look at ultrabooks.

DVD/CD Drive – If you think that you'll be using DVD's or CD's then make sure that you laptop has a drive for these. A lot of cheaper laptops don't come with these even though it's something that a lot of people would assume comes with a laptop. Many laptop manufacturers have started to not put DVD and CD drives in their laptops in order to save money and therefore be able to sell the laptop at a better price for consumers.
