Find out what laptop do you need

May 13, 2020 Posted by P.Notis

Strange as it may seem to you, it is simpler than you think, that is, to choose a laptop computer.
  • Criteria
  • What Gamer wants
  • What does the Employee want?
  • For daily use
There are two basic criteria in 2020 to decide what laptop you need.

the  Criterion

How much money are you willing to give?

The  Criterion

What do you plan to do with your laptop?

LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MONEY

Laptop prices have been pretty good in recent years. They are not excessive and start at around € 300. It would be good to rely on this factor first, how much money we want to give.
An important element in the money market is optional if you have the option to buy in installments or even better in interest-free installments. Of course, as you know, there are NO 72 interest-free installments. So you need to be sure that you can repay it in 9-12 installments.

LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE PURPOSE OF THE MARKET.

Regarding the purpose of the purchase, we could divide it into 3 main subcategories.
  • For Games
  • For the work
  • For Daily Use
If you belong to the first category, that you want a powerful laptop almost exclusively for Gaming, let's first mention a few issues.

WHAT DOES A SERIOUS GAMER WANT?

  • Very nice realistic graphics
  • Speed
  • Design
  • Big screen
Graphics are A and O in a game. You need to make sure that the graphics card is compatible with the games you want to play. You will also need to purchase an additional cooling system for the laptop to keep the temperature constant.
In terms of speed, it would be good not to go to extremes, but a pre-final processor would be enough, for example an Intel i7
Most  gamers  also like the design of the laptop. You will see most models for games with angles and deep colors in led.  
To enjoy a laptop game, the screen dimensions are just as important. Most gaming laptops, however, do not exceed 17.3 inches. You will notice that the price cut opens a lot when you select 17.3 ”.
Prices range from € 800 - € 4300

WHAT DOES AN EMPLOYEE IN PARTICULAR WANT (APART FROM A HIGHER SALARY)?

We often hear everyday people need it for my work, I don't want it for games and movies.
If you belong to this category then you need a laptop that will have the following
  • Fast hard SSD
  • Good battery
  • Several USB ports
  • Size-weight
The fast SSD will really make the computer fly compared to classic drives. It's just that the GB to Euro ratio is still a bit stingy. The  SSD  will reach 250GB. There is virtually no difference with the M.2 card variant  
Of course you should choose a laptop that has the right  battery  to work non-stop and without power. Of course, keep in mind that if you want to watch movies using the battery, then in 3 months it will definitely be empty.
In our time we are full of external devices. Sticks, printers, headphones, for an employee who is constantly with the laptop, it is not possible to have a laptop with 1 simple USB port. Ask for a laptop that all or most of the USB ports are USB 3.0
Of course, someone who is on the road with or without a car needs something light and not huge. Here come the modern backpack bags that with the many pockets will make your life even simpler.
Their prices range from € 600 - € 1300

WHAT DOES A DAILY USER WANT?

The average user in 2020 usually wants a little of everything. It is as you understand a small trap. He wants it most of the time
  • Watch movies
  • Listen to music with good headphones 
  • Take the Laptop on vacation
  • Don't get stuck
  • To print ENFIA or the work of the school
So it's a small trap because it's good to combine the good battery, and enough RAM with the SSD so it doesn't get stuck and has enough ports. We should not miss the big screen to watch movies and series.
So there are laptops that actually have most of them. To make them attractive, manufacturers simply add performance to the processors in the motherboard and memories. However, they are hardware components, which are essential for the long-term good operation of the laptop.
We mention the long-term operation because as time goes on and more and more updates are downloaded or we have some antivirus for free, we will start to notice that it may not work for us in the end.
This will remind you of 1 the  test exactly how much money we can afford. Because we will necessarily have to go up a category on a laptop that touches the business, otherwise if we can't do something more and the amounts are prohibitive we will have a laptop from 300 € - 500 €
