How to choose a perfect laptop for yourself

Published

on

Gone are the days of large and bulky computers which aren’t best tool for portable computing.Wait, Smartphones might come in your mind by seeing word
“portable” and “computing” , yes they are very portable and fast enough to carry
out most of your daily tasks but PC’s still have a special space in our heart and apart
from both of them, we got laptops, the “Jack of all trades” ,Compact enough to carry with you, yet versatile enough to run all your application, a laptop is the best
tool for doing serious work or play at home.

But, while purchasing a laptop or any other electronics, we get very confused as
there are lots of option and we don’t know which one is best and might be best for
you and end up wasting our money. But wait, for what we are here. We will be
guiding you to choose a laptop which fulfils all your need and which doesn’t make a hole in your pocket.

Set your budget

For an Indian consumer, their budget is everything and everything has a specific
budget. So, first of all you need to have a proper idea that how much money you can
spend to get a suitable machine for you and nowadays basic laptops starts from
10K and go upto heftier price of 1000K ( In this price you can arrange a marriage
ceremony in India). But keep in mind you get what you pay. As, if you are willing to
invest 15K to 20K, then you will get laptops
of brand like iBall, Acer and Micromax
with very low-end specification which will be enough for daily computing but if
you are a serious gamer or need a machine for youtubing and other power hungry
task then you might have to stretch your budget to minimum of 50K atleast

Now let’s move to our second step. Now we have to find best in our budget
and let’s distribute it in several questions

What size will be perfect for me ?

Laptops are meant to be light and portable and this is the main thing for which youbuy a laptop and after all a laptop’s screen size also determines the overall size of its
chassis.

You need to think carefully about whether you’ll be travelling with your laptop or using it only at home; there isn’t much point buying an ultralight 13 inch laptop if you’re going to use it on a desk at home or in your office most of the time. A laptop with a huge 17-inch screen will be fantastic for work and gaming, but will be far bigger and heavier than a 13 inch or 15 inch model.

A 15 inch or 13 inch model offers a decent compromise between ease of use and portability and as long as it weighs around 2kg , you probably won’t mind taking it with you in your trips. If you want something super-lightweight, opt for a laptop with a display of 11-13 inches.

If you want a compact 13 inch laptop then you should visit Asus store once because they have a wide range of compact laptop otherwise we would suggest you to go with HP or Lenevo if you want a mainstream laptop for your office.

Do we really have to care about screen resolution ?

I think maybe yes, but not in all scenarios. As on laptops with smaller screens, a
larger resolution doesn’t always mean more space. There isn’t a huge difference
between a 15-inch laptop with a 1,920 x 1,080 screen (1080P) and a 15-inch model 1,366 x 768 screen (720P). However, the higher resolution does mean that text and icons will be lot better and your gaming experience will be also better.

To get an idea of exactly what it is you’re looking for in a screen, We will suggest you to visit a nearby store and try a few out. Might, Your eyesight will decide better what kinda screen fit’s you best.

Windows or MacOS ?

This is one of the most toughest question, We have encountered apart from
“Android Vs iOS” and it’s all depend on your personal preference. While if you
chose windows, you will have lot’s of option whereas MacOS is only for Macbooks,
which comes under premium segment.
So, if you want a laptop for work and home and can’t spend that much then you
have to go with laptop and if you can spend 60K-70K, then Macbook is the best
option for you.

Which ports my machine should have ?

A laptop has very limited room,so has far fewer ports than a desktop PC. So, you
need to think carefully what you need to plug in. Look, according to me I’ll suggest
you to go with a laptop having a minimum of two USB 2.0 or 3.0 ports, SD card
reader, LAN port and one USB Type C port will be a sweet treat ( To welcome the
most awaited future happily).Ohh we also need a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Some of you might also need a HDMI port which isn’t that necessary but yes if you
are a business user than it might be good for you for your presentations and other
official stuff.

Now lets focus on the one of the main segment story, “Performance”
Till now we have talked a lot about the looks of your future laptop, so now it’s time
to worry about it’s innards.

Let’s first talk about “Processors”

Your laptop’s processor is like its brain and it’s very tricky to choose a perfect
processor. All depends on your budget. If you are willing to spend maximum of 20K you have to satisfied with a intel Celeron or Atom or you might also get an AMD, but I
recommend you to go with intel at this time. You will get a Pentium if you spend
30K, but believe me you will cry a lot because if you stretch your budget 3-4K and
search some shops near you you can easily grab a laptop with a year old i3 6th gen.
While if you go upto 50K to 60K you will absolutely get a laptop with top of the line
chips.

Best processors, never guarantees best performance if manufacturer haven’t
customized it according to other components. So, always try before you buy
(anything).

How much RAM ?

Random Access Memory, simply called RAM is the second most important thing
you have to consider while buying a laptop and it is not necessary that a laptop with
higher RAM will perform better.
So, for a beginner RAM is simply used by the central processing unit (CPU) when a
computer is running to store information that it needs to be used very quickly, but
it does not store any information permanently.That means better RAM means
better processor.

Unless you’re buying a seriously cheap laptop, opt for at least 4GB, so you don’t
have to worry about how many browser tabs you have open at once. If you’re going
to be editing video, you’ll ideally need at least 8GB, although this amount of RAM is
now common even in budget laptops.
As,We said earlier higher RAM doesn’t ensure better performance. So, what should
you care about. There is a term apart from numbers in RAM, yes you got it right.
DDRx’s, So always look for latest tech as DDR4 or DDR3L. You might say why not DDR5 ?, The reason is it’s not in hands of many manufacturers and still who have
them they use them for their top-of-the-line gaming series laptops, which will
cost you around 4 to 5 Lakhs and goes upto as high as 10 lakhs.

The “Game” of Graphics

Most laptops rely on their processor’s integrated graphics , usually called “Intel
HD Graphics”. This can play simple 3D games at low resolution at low to medium
settings, but if you are serious about games then you’ll need a laptop with a
dedicated Nvidia or AMD graphics, otherwise you will see some major frame dropsin many of the games. It’s hard to determine which graphics chipset will be best from the model number, So we recommend searching for graphics benchmarks online to see how the card performs.

Where to store my stuff ?

Finally, we come to storage. So, basically there are two type of storage technologies
SSD and HDD. Talking about them, an SSD will make your laptop feel far quicker
and responsive and it also have a great adverse effect on your laptop’s battery life,
So is worth looking out for if you can afford it as it only comes in stock with
premium laptops. HDD is basically the normal storage which comes with mostly all
of your PC’s and a lot cheaper than SSD.
The most common used storage option is 500GB HDD and 1TB HDD in budget
segment and the difference of price between them is just few 1000’s, So grab a 1TB
laptop and in premium segment go with 216GB SSD and buy a spare 500GB/1TB
Harddisk for your personal files.

Ideal Battery

Battery life should be priority if you’re planning to travel with your laptop, because
it’s not possible to travel with your power adapter everywhere. So look for a laptop
with a laptop with at least 7-8 hours of backup.

Again, Ideal battery life for your small, highly portable one should be around 10 -12
hours and for mainstream one’s it should be somewhat 7-8 hours.

We have finished a lot but still some questions remain

Let’s take a look on them

Should I go with 2-in-one or mainstream laptops ?

It’s all depend on your personal preference , whether do you need portability of
performance. So, you have to ask yourself what do you need.

(This need a complete article to talk about which one is better.)

Where should I buy offline or online ?

I will suggest you to go and experience the laptops at your nearest store and then
compare the price between online and offline markets and buy at the best price
from a reputed shop for authenticity. Also, sometimes offline market also offers
great lucrative offer, so look for them.

Lastly, check out the manufacturer’s warranty. Make sure it’s at least a year long
and know exactly what it covers, also see whether it has extended warranty or not
because sometime 1 year is not enough and if you are prone to accidents then get
you and your laptop insured.

By the way, Congrats for your new laptop.

Hope you are happy with it and me.

We are moving to an era where the definition of life is getting limited to the screens. All around we can see that people sticking their heads in their phones and laptops. We are trying to find our happiness and fun on those screens. Our lives are getting trapped in that virtual world which is continuously affecting our relationships, mental state, Physical potential, and the future as well.

According to a research an average person checks his/her phone in every 15minutes even though there is no notification popping up. Talking about screens, phones are the most addictive ones as it develops in anxiety in your mind to check and use phones after the last time we put it back. This scenario is getting worse and worse for people of every age.

THE REALITY

The age group which is getting affected by this addiction is teenagers. A recent research explains that teens in front of screens for at least 8 hours a day and on an average of 60 hours a week. They prefer to play on their laptops rather move out for playing.

the trap of the necessary evil

Parents are also not able to control them from using their stuff because if they do then teens become aggressive in such a way that the whole thing becomes a drama. We admit it or not this necessary evil is playing with us. It has managed to capture innocent as well as mature minds.

If you look around today, we can easily find people prefer sticking their heads on their phone instead of making communicating with other people. Our minds are been trained to become like this due to the evolving work culture and virtualization in every field of work. We now prefer dating online and easily believe strangers in spite of going out with an individual who is known.

Even in the gyms, trainers observe that most of the guys check their phones between sets of their exercise. It is acting a cocaine which never allows the body to get out of that fun and fake happiness. you can’t blame ourselves totally for this behavior because screens are a necessary part of your life.

 SIGNS THAT YOU ARE ADDICTED

  1. Time Spent->If you spent a lot of time using your phone or laptop throughout the day without realizing. You love searching online stuff for making your time pass. After getting in you surf hours and hours without knowing that your small time pass break has consumed a major part of the day. That is why platforms like youtube are now giving a take a break feature.
  2. frequency->You always check your phone constantly after some time. It doesn’t feel good or complete if you haven’t played a game on your PC for the whole day. If this happens to you then maybe you are addicted to the screen web.
  3. Urge-> A feeling is always there to check your phone. You are not getting able to control your urge until you check your phone. It can lead to severe problems in the future and can stop your progress in real life. Try to avoid checking the phone every time it feels like.
  4. Shedule->If playing games or spending time on social media has become a part of your daily routine then it’s dangerous. You always wait for that free hours to open your laptop and start a multiplayer game online with your friends. It makes your brain not to except any other thing during those hours.
  5. focus->You find it hard to focus at a thing for a long time. It can be anything like reading a book or listening to a lecture or anything which requires focus and attention to capture. Starting to find an alternative for an intensive work is one of the major signs of addiction and a problem as well.
  6. Avoiding ->Preferring to look at the screen of your phone or laptop in a public place. It shows that your is occupied by the tendency to feel secure and engaged more in screens rather than the outside world. If it is so then good luck with your life goals and relationships.

POSSIBLE OUTCOMES

If the above symptoms are found in a person there are many problems which are possible might occur. It depends on your strength physically and mentally how your body is acting upon it. Some of the well-known ones are:-

  • Being tired all the time and a continuous feeling of sleeping. It makes your body feel lethargic and out of fuel as you continuously stare at that screen. Your brain starts to feel exhausted and demands rest. This affects your schedule as well as energy levels.the trap of the necessary evil
  • Red eyes are one of the common problems found in people who spend their most of the time in front of screens. Irritation of the eyes is the signal that you must take that screen off and give your eye a rest. Your eyes are very sensitive and need proper care.  So, consider wearing anti-glare spectacles during long hours of work on your laptop.
  • Low ambition is also considered a possible effect of these screens. They don’t allow you to focus on life goals and work towards the achievement of something big. It all appears that the life is limited to that social media status and late night chatting of no logic.
  • Relations also get affected as you prefer spending time with your phones and tablets rather with your parents and loved ones. Be practical with things because relations are the base of your life, not that screen.

CONCLUSION

Screens play a vital role in our life without them life is not possible today. But we have to understand that there use must not affect our life, health, and moral values. There is much more to explore in this world than your virtual world. Just get out and optimize your life to the fullest.
