This article gives a complete and up-to-date informtaion on how to buy a laptop Pc. Some useful things that should be kept in mind is revealed through this article so that it becomes that much easier to make a conclusion when purchasing a laptop for yourself.

         

Introduction

Laptops are in great demand these days by the consumers simply because one needs not to be bound at a fixed place with it. The best thing is that one may use it on the go either from one's office, home or even when is moving around and traveling distances. This very feature of portability has made laptop PCs selling like hot cakes among the teens of the present generation and corporate business professionals. You may get confused and may have the weirdo goose bumps to choose a suitable laptop for yourself that would suit your daily need. Now, would not life be much simpler if you have a road map or a guide to help you to be familiar with the things to keep in mind while purchasing a laptop for yourself? Let me inform you that before buying a laptop you need to watch out for certain things so that at the end you get a happier user experience. Given below are some of the important things given which you need to keep in mind while purchasing a laptop PC:

Processor

During this age of speed, any gadget gets one's attention only when it is able to overhaul other gadgets in the market in terms of speed and better performance. If speed is what you are craving for then before purchasing a laptop keep a keen eye on the processors. Normally, if one judges quality in terms of money then Intel dual core, Core duo, Core 2 duo and Core 2 extreme processors are the one which comes in one's mind. To tell you the truth, in the battle of speed and supremacy these processors have left others far behind. But if you do not like to have Intel processors or if it does not suit your pocket then you can obviously rely on AMD athlon processors.

System memory

If you have more ram in your laptop PC then not only your machine would perform better but also all the applications in the system would run smoothly. The low budget laptops that are available in the market has 2 GB ram embedded in them. But you need to consider the fact that since most of the laptops run different versions of windows 7 it would be a good idea to use more powerful ram. Most of the consumers have the myth that to start with they would buy a laptop with low ram and would upgrade it in the future. But the nail biting fact is that due to the problem that surfaces regarding the different models of ram and their frequencies would never allow them to upgrade the ram of the laptops in the future. Hence, it would be more than better if one purchases a laptop PC with more ram (say 4 GB).

Graphics memory

To increase the graphics memory of laptop PCs is no more a luxury but it has become necessary now. With the release of new advanced operating systems different types of new audio video files have popped out in the present scenario. To enjoy these without any problems whatsoever the graphics memory should be up to the standard. If one does not need to do things like graphic designing and video editing then a graphic card of 512 MB is more than enough to fulfill one's need.

Screen

Bigger screens bring big entertainments while watching movies and playing games. But before investing in a laptop with bigger screens one need to keep in mind the simple fact that the bigger the screen of a laptop the more weighty it would be. Those who need to carry laptops for professional or business purposes a weighty laptop would be a problem. Normally, laptops of size 14.1 inches to 15.4 inches are ideal for one to carry. Moreover, if you have decided to use your laptop inside the four walls of your house then you may consider a laptop of 16 cms screen size to buy. The good thing with these bigger screen laptops are that their resolutions are very attractive, that is, 1920 X 1080.

Battery

One of my friends, who works in the laptop service center of a multinational company, states that 70 percents of the laptops that comes for repair to the service center of the company have problems related to batteries. One of the primary reasons of failure of the laptop batteries is the hot and humid weather conditions of our country. Hence, if possible it would be prudent from your side to purchase an extra battery which would be helpful to you in crisis.

Optical drive

Not very long ago if anyone had a DVD writer in their system then nothing more one could have asked for. But with the change of time and constant improvement in technology blue ray disc have made an entry in the market and left DVD's far behind in the race. It may cost you a bit more but if you want a crystal clear image you can cent percent rely on it without a second thought.

Hard drive

Hard drive from 200 GB to 500 GB are available in the laptop PCs today. It would be better if you opt for 500 GB hard drive since there is not much difference in the price between the two. Among the hard discs that are available today, Western digital and Sea gates are branded companies which you may rely at. If ever in future you need to replace hard discs make sure to go for these branded companies.

Screen protector

Last but not the least, after buying a laptop and before using you need to make sure to put on a screen protector on the screen of your laptop PC. These are easy available in the market and are very dear in price. This would surely go a long way to protect your eyes from strains, stresses and other unfriendly rays emitting from your laptop PC.
