Things to consider when buying a laptop

1

Touchscreen

Windows 8 is designed to make the most of touchscreen laptops, so if you’ve never used one before, now’s the perfect time. Touchscreen makes using your PC faster, easier and much more fun.

It’s similar to using a smartphone or tablet, and Windows 8 uses many of the gestures you already use on your other devices.

2

Processor

Processors determine the speed and performance of your laptop. One of the main components of a laptop, more affordable laptops use processors that can help to provide longer battery life, whilst processors in high performance PCs are designed to deliver speed for demanding programs.

There are lots of processors between these that are perfectly designed for everyday use.

3

RAM

Random Access Memory (RAM) helps your laptop to cope with more tasks at once so you can get more done.

The more memory your laptop has installed, the more tasks it can do simultaneously, which is ideal if you’re working on lots of documents at once or running demanding programmes. Consider a laptop with more RAM if you’re working on lots at once.

4

Dedicated Graphics

Dedicated graphics greatly improve the way everything on your laptop looks and let you enjoy films, TV and games at their best.

Gaming laptops always feature high-performance graphics cards so you can enjoy games that just won’t run on normal laptops.

5

Storage

Laptops use either hard disk drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs), or can use a combination of the both.

A hard drive generally offers large capacity storage that’s ideal for family or work PCs. SSDs are quicker, and are commonly found in laptops providing speedy performance.

6

2 in 1

2 in 1s provide the best of both worlds, with the best features of a laptop and a tablet in a single device. The convenient design lets you change modes in moments, so you can switch between typing documents and browsing online without hassle.

They use the Windows 8 operating system, making them compatible with all your everyday software.
