Laptop Essentials To Buy New Laptops

With big electronic brands coming out with a range of new notebooks every other month, making decisions for buying a new laptop has become trickier than ever. So we have decided to help all the harried buyers with details on things to consider before they make their next buy. We don’t recommend brands, but provide tips on some factors to consider.

The Right Size

If want a good replacement for your PC, the ultrathin and sleek laptops may not be the best substitute. These ultraportable machines are good for people on the go, but they usually lack essentials such as optical drives and extra ports that a desktop has. What you might like is a behemoth with a screen size of 15 or 17 inches, great performance specifications, big keyboard and an average battery life. But if you are simply looking for a secondary computer on the go—something to just get your work done with—then cheap netbooks or budget laptops should do the trick.

Fast Enough

As a general rule, always go with the fastest processor you can afford. AMD’s mobile processors have recently been optimised for better battery life and high performance. They are usually a bit cheaper than Intel’s processors, so it might be sensible to go for an AMD processor for your portable. However, resale values for laptops with AMD processors are not as high as those with Intel here in Nepal (from what we’ve heard). So it’s really up to you to make the choice.

Power On The Go

If you will be doing a lot of travelling, then go for a laptop with the longest battery life. Better yet, get one extra battery, which you might get for a heavily discounted price while buying the laptop. Typical batteries have a mAh (milliamp-hour) rating between 2,000mAh and 6,000mAh; go for the highest you can afford. Cells are the compartments that produce power in a battery and range from 4 to 12 cells per battery, with 6 cells per battery being the most common. The higher, the better (but it costs more too!).

Expandable Slots

A PC Card slot in your laptop is much like the PCI slots in desktops. Provide your computer with expansion opportunities. PC Cards can be plugged into a slot in your notebook to get you a number of connection types including modems, USB connections and wireless WAN radios. Thus it’s better to look for a laptop that has several PC Card slots. 


Lots of RAM lets you run lots of applications simultaneously. Good performance comes with good memory. Also, sufficient memory is necessary for graphics work, image/video editing, and is crucial for gaming. This is especially true in notebooks, because notebook graphics processors frequently have little memory of their own and share the main RAM system. Also, look for memory slots, because memory is mostly the first thing users tend to upgrade. 

HDMI Ports

If you’re one of those HD movie fanatics and have spent a lot of cash buying blue-ray discs abroad, check if your laptop has an HDMI port. This way, you can enjoy them on your LCD TVs if and when you buy them.
