How to Select a Laptop or Notebook
Laptops and notebooks have quickly become the preferred option for PC buyers, and for good reason. These smaller, portable PCs can pack a lot of power for their size, and offer a lot of useful features just like you’d find on a desktop PC.
A laptop’s biggest appeal, obviously, lies in its portability. You can take it with you wherever you go, which means you can work and play anytime, anywhere – in bed, at the office, on the road, at a café, or wherever life or business takes you.
Today’s laptops and notebooks are more sophisticated and better engineered than ever, giving you the ability to do whatever you need. From documents, spreadsheets and presentations to movies, music, gaming and more, there’s nothing you can’t do on a laptop.
If you fly frequently, then portability is going to be your main concern. Consider having a slim, lightweight laptop. These notebook computers feature processors (or CPUs) that have been optimized for mobility. This means these notebook PCs are energy efficient as well as compact. If you notice that no notebook is mobile enough for your needs, you’ll want to check out the 2-in-1 Convertible Laptops. These can instantly be used as Tablets and are just the thing for on-the-go computing, and they’re cheap as well.
More powerful processors have boosted laptop speeds considerably. At the same time, ever-larger hard drive capacity – up to 2TB on more expensive models – gives you the ability to multi-task with increasingly more complex applications. And with up to 32GB of memory, today’s laptops make it easy for you to store your documents, music, photos and other media.
TigerDirect offers a great selection of laptops for every need, including ultrabooks, touchscreen laptops, 2-in-1 laptops, gaming laptops and thin laptops. And if you’re working with a limited budget, you’ll also find that TigerDirect has a range of cheap laptops and refurbished laptops.
So, what kind of laptop or notebook is the right one for you? As always, it depends on your needs and your budget. Think about how you’ll be using yours, do some comparison shopping on features and prices, and get the best you can afford. You won’t be disappointed.
