How to choose the best laptop that suits your needs

With a multitude of brands and models in the market combined with the very fast turnover in technology, it can really become such a headache when choosing what laptop to purchase for your mobile computing needs.
Now since these devices can be quite expensive, it is extremely important that the laptop you get will suit your needs as well as last at least 3 to 5 years or until you have money to upgrade on a newer model. With all these in mind, here are some ideas that you can tinker with and keep in mind when shopping around for laptops

Evaluate your needs.
People purchase laptops for different reason. Some people buy it for mobile gaming purposes while others use it primarily for work. Some purchase laptops for computing convenience while others use it to edit photos and videos on the fly. Well, if you are on the hunt for the best laptop for you, always consider first and foremost why you need the machine and what will you use it for. Reflecting on this first will help you decide on the specifications, dimensions, features, and brand of the laptop that you should purchase. This will surely narrow down your search.
Dimensions and weight.
Again, this aspect of a laptop is better left to the actual reason why you need a laptop. If you are a gamer or heavy into graphics, then having a large laptop with a nice 19 to 20 inch screen size might be the option for you. On the other hand, if you are the casual user focusing on being able to check your email and surf the web occasionally on the go, then consider a smaller and less bulkier one, something that has a 10 to 12 inch screen size. Decide if you want the machine to be lightweight and super thin as well.
For many people, all the other aspects won’t really matter since laptop value should be determined with the specifications. Yes, people want maximum computing power in relation to acceptable costs. Decide if you want an Intel or AMD duo or quad core processor. Decide on a 500gb or 1tb hard drive. Ramp up your memory from the standard 2gb to 6 or 8gb. Finally, will you be heavy on gaming or will you be a casual user to help you decide if you need advanced graphics card or the cheaper on-board ones. Specifications are equivalent to computing power and it is highly recommended to purchase a machine with this aspect primarily in mind.
Brand and warranty.
Some people choose laptops based on brands. For instance, brands like Dell, Apple, IBM, and HP are probably the most popular brands in laptops and most people will settle purchasing these. However, buying branded does not really equate to performance. Some of the smaller brands may provide better machines at less cost. However, if you are looking for solid warranties and support, then it would be a good idea to go with these major brands.
Again, this would depend on your needs. Need extra USB ports, powerful Wireless networking, an integrated card reader, a sim card slot for 3G connectivity, and extended battery life? Yes, these features should always6 be considered when shopping since these little things actually make the laptop more useful. Don’t forget to keep the features of a laptop in mind when choosing one.
In the end, it will all boil down to the cost for most people. You will definitely want to get value for your money. However, it will depend on what you need it for. This being said, determine your budget and needs and buy one that you think will suit both acceptably.
