5 Tips For Buying A Laptop

11 May 2008 978 supporters No Comment

You’re taking the plunge and buying a laptop. If this is

your first, you probably are a little considerate about what

you should be buying, what to avoid and what the big dollar

sign is going to tell you. While there are a number of

things to consider when it comes to buying a laptop, you can

easily work your way through knowing what those are. Many

people get a little worried about purchasing any type of

computer. Follow these tips and you’ll get the right laptop

for your needs.

Tip One: Know what you plan to use the laptop for. Sounds

simple, but it will also define what is on the laptop you

purchase. For example, if you are a professional looking to

buy a laptop, not only do you need to insure the right

software is on board, but you’ll need to make sure there is

enough space to run it. For the personal user, do you plan

to watch DVD’s? Do you plan to use it for gaming?

Tip Two: Compare and then compare some more. When you are

out there looking at the various laptops, make sure to take

some notes (doing your research online really saves you time

here!) about the various aspects of the laptop. You’ll want

to compare hard drive space, monitor size, drives, speed and

other features that are important to your purchase. Not

only are you looking for the best price, but the best

overall product.

Tip Three: Warranties are important. Warranties vary

greatly from one laptop to the next. When buying a laptop,

you need to realize that the most common problem will be

with the screens, especially those that are LCD. Make sure

your warranty gives you the best coverage from parts that

may break down.

Tip Four: While name brand isn’t everything, you should

purchase a quality product. That means that you’ll need to

insure that when you are buying a laptop that if you do

decide to go with a lesser known brand name that you find

out how well they really work. To do this, use consumer

reviews that you’ll find online.

Tip Five: Make sure you know what is included in the

purchase. If you plan to get online with the laptop, are

there more products needed to do so? If you need the laptop

to come with Word and it doesn’t, then you’ll need to

account for that extra purchase as well.

When buying a laptop, take the time to consider all aspects

of it, do your research and you’ll end up on top.
