How to choose a right laptop

Posted Dec 26 2011 7:47am

If you are going to buy a laptop but are confused about the following questions, I guess you can take a few minutes to read the answers I am gonna write in this post.
Q: Can laptop easily be damaged?
A: For the whole laptop, the display is the most easily damaged part, and it is also the most expensive one. However, it’s not easy to get LCD damaged if you pay a lot attention laptop clean since the dust often affects the laptop accessories and slow down the heat dispersion (heat is the first laptop killer) as well as bad accessories image. It’s true but remember this won’t easily happen if we do well in laptop cleaning.
Q: How to choose laptop processor?
A: The most rational thing is based on your needs and not choose the processor according to the manufacturer’s making race-buying what they newly manufactured. In the end, you will find it’s a waste of energy and money since usually the new products still have a lot of unknown problems exists and they are extremely expensive. So, buying the processor at a reasonable price could probably avoid the problem (this is not like fixing driver problems by installing the newest dell drivers for a dell laptop).
However, this principle may not work for Apple computer since they usually are stable in features improving. ;)
Q: How to choose laptop display?
A: The LCD monitor is the most valuable part of a laptop and it’s the part that we touch the most often, so comfort is the most important thing to a monitor. But to be general, a large, bright display is a laptop’s fundamental. For people who value portability the most, the mini laptop should be a good choice. But if your work involves showing and explaining to clients, you obviously need a bigger display. For people whose job is designing, drawing and professionals like that, a bigger display is also essential.
Q: How to choose a notebook’s hard drive?
A: The laptop's hard drive is the bigger the better? Of course it’s not. The larger hard drive will increase difficulty in searching. Most notebooks’ hard disk speed is 4900rpm now and generally the computer's hard drive has 5400rpm speed, although it’s a little bit higher, it consumes higher power which is not good for notebooks. Basically, laptops’ hard driver now is 4GB or more, the capacity should be sufficient unless user needs to store large amounts of multimedia data. But if you don’t have any backup device (such as CD-RW or ZIP, etc.) but you still want to replace the laptop to the desktop computer, your hard drive should be big enough.
