Having done thorough brand research before Buying a laptop for myself, just a few hours ago, I would recommend Notebook Manufacturers at the following order of precedence:-
Dell > Apple > HP = Asus >Lenovo >Acer
One of the brands, I would advise that you purchase the ones that are not looting your money in the title of Pre-built Windows and MS Office and also those that aren’t making you spend unnecessarily on gimmicky features like fingerprint password or 2K display.
Alright, I have a confession to make, which I’ll make near the end of this answer.
See, when it comes to purchasing a notebook, there are three places where one needs to pay attention to:-
The Processor of this notebook is its brain. The is the mind of the laptop. Obviously, the greater the CPU the greater number of directions it can manage at any given moment of time. Therefore, more potent the CPU, more functionality one can derive out of it. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean everyone should purchase an Intel i7 processor notebook computer. As a matter of fact, most people do not need a notebook with a CPU strong than Intel i5. Intel i5 serves sweet spot between powerful performance and adequate battery life. The i7 chip is largely suited to the needs of a 4K video editor or even an intensive gamer.
The most crucial factor in determining the performance of a notebook is its own storage type. Sadly, the majority of us don’t pay much attention to this facet of the laptop. The presence of SSD (Solid State Drive) or SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Drive) above a traditional HDD storage increases the read and write speed of the laptop manifold occasions. Therefore, one can expect snappy functionality from the notebook throughout its shelf life.
What I am going to write here is unknown to the majority of people out there. There are two different types of RAM available on the marketplace. I am not talking about DDR3 and DDR4 here, I am discussing the frequency of those RAMs, the gap in the frequency can either make or break the operation of your laptop. As a rule of thumb, higher the frequency of this RAM, better will be the performance.
Now is time for a confession.
I was looking to get a laptop for myself because the past ten days and had researched both Quora and Google for a response that might help me make a buying choice.
As a Possible buyer, it was quite essential for me to get answers to questions like:-
What operating system will suit my work needs better, can it be Windows or Mac or Linux.
What hardware specifications if I look for according to my own requirements of conducting a few works associated software on my laptop such I get the strong performance and at the same time adequate battery backup.
If I go with an Intel i5 chip or an Intel i7 chip. Which one of them would give me constant functionality under a load of heavy jobs?
What are a few components configuration and attributes I can prevent in the notebook to be able to keep the cost under check?
Unfortunately, the majority of the replies focus primarily on the merchandise and the qualities that are on offer. (No offense). I had lost all hope to find a satisfactory response, but …
Then, today evening, I came across a post that answered most of my queries. I read in the article:-
Which are some of those must-have hardware elements in a notebook which ensures good performance for at least five-six decades?
Which operating system matches that type of work and lifestyle atmosphere.
What tasks require a dedicated graphics card and can this hardware component be averted.
Which are a few of the best laptops out there in the market for a variety of needs and across various budgets?
