Five Features of a Good Laptop

iPhones and tablets are getting popular each day. My friends change their cell phones every six months. These devices are good for designing, and playing games. If, I am attending an online university, or I am the internet marketer; can I use an iPhone? Readers will agree that I cannot run a business by using an iPhone. Serious computer engineers still prefer a desktop computer. If you are running your business from your home; you should buy a desktop computer. However, laptops are more portable. It is easy to carry them wherever you want, and you get a battery backup for 6-10 hours.

Laptops are becoming popular because they are inexpensive, and they can run on batteries. You can get great features in just 100$-300$. The task is to select the best laptop features for long-term use.

Operating System

I have always used a Windows laptop, and I am not familiar with other platforms. Mac laptops are expensive as compared to Windows laptops. Each platform has its features. Choose the one that is more compatible. Chrome OS is also a good option, and it is not expensive. Readers have reported problems with Windows 7 and 8. I believe that Windows is the best operating system, and these issues will be resolved with the new version. If you buy a Windows laptops, you can get a free upgrade to Windows 10.

Screen Size & resolution

In the last six months, I have changed three laptops. This is why I am writing this article. Getting the right screen size is very important. Previously, I was using a 17″ inches laptop. Now, I am using the one with 11″ inches screen. The small LED screen is good for watching movies but, it is difficult to type the document. I had to make serious adjustments to make sure it does not hurt my eyesight.

Keyboard & Touchpad

The quality of the keyboard will affect you more than anything. Check the space between keys and also check the touchpad. Does it work smoothly? I use a wireless keyboard attached to my laptop. Most people do not use an extra keyboard or mouse. You will be giving all the instructions through these two pointing devices. Make sure that you select the right one.


Most laptops in the market have a 4 GB RAM. If you are going to buy a laptop in 2015, look for a 8 GB RAM. It offers great multitasking features. CPU speed is also an important feature. Do not compromise over CPU speed. Buy the latest CPU with the best possible speed.

Traditional laptop VS 2 in 1 Notebook

Laptops can also work as standalone tablets. It is a 2 in 1 feature, and you have to decide which one you want. Personally, I use the laptop for business purposes, and I will use the traditional one. The new laptop generation is called ” Hybrid laptop.” Laptops, mobiles, and tablets are being merged into a single screen. It is a great invention for busy people.

If you plan to use a general laptop, then buy a hybrid laptop. You can play games, watch movies, and handle your business tasks at the same time.

Other Important Features:

1. Laptop battery life

2. Laptop Warranty

3. Laptop Adapter

4. Laptop service center

5.Colour & Model

Good, you have read the complete article. In this article, we did not discuss laptop categories. Gaming laptops have to be more efficient than general purpose laptops. Write your requirements on paper and make the purchase carefully. You will be using the laptop for at least 10-12 months before you buy the next one.

Thanks for reading.
