When we want to buy a new laptop, price is one of the most
important factors we should take into consideration. But all of us want to buy
the laptops which own both performance and affordability. If you are looking to
buy a new laptop, you find yourself wanting more of everything. Some of us,
however, don’t want or can’t afford every feature offered by laptop
manufacturers. Here in this article, we will have a talk about how to save
money at no sacrifice of performance or other features when buying a laptop.
Backlit keyboards are all the rage. For some laptops, such
as the first generation Macbook Air, the lack of keyboard backlighting was a
sticking point. A backlit keyboard, however, will decrease your notebook’s
battery life and is generally only available on more expensive notebooks. If
you can touch-type, or want the best battery life possible, consider skipping a
backlit keyboard. In most cases, an overhead light isn’t far away. The need for
speed is insatiable, and Intel’s Core i5 and i7 processors offer some of the
fastest speeds around. Others, however, are just interested in browsing the
Internet, listening to music and word processing.
For gamers today, discrete graphics aren’t a luxury, they’re
a necessity. Without a GPU, such games as “Skyrim” and “Arkham
City” are unplayable, and low-end games such as “World of
Warcraft” stutter along. Video editors equally rely on discrete graphics
to edit and manipulate footage in 1080p. Everything is going digital, from
movies and music to games and software. As hard drives’ storage capacity
increases and wireless connectivity expands making large files such as HD
movies and video games increasingly easy to transmit over the Internet and
store on your notebook-the need for a dedicated optical drive dwindles.
Laptop theft is a serious issue. Just ask anyone who has
stepped away from his or her notebook for a minute, only to return and find it
missing. Enter the Kensington Security Slot, an anti-theft system that consists
of a metal-reinforced hole on the side of the notebook, to which a lock and
cable can be attached. Some of us want the best of both worlds. The mobility of
a notebook combined with the screen real estate of a desktop monitor. If you’re
someone who can’t get a large enough screen, the ability to attach your laptop
to a monitor or TV is non-negotiable and until recently, that meant your laptop
had to have a VGA port.
If you take all the above factors into consideration, you can
buy a more functional but more affordable laptop.
