how to choose my laptop
1 Sep 09
Hi Sadixy, To choose a laptop is not so easy but also if kept in mind..it will be easy for you If you are used to a larger-sized desktop monitor, you'll want to choose a laptop that has a larger screen. A 15" screen is usually standard, but there are 17" screens available, which may be worth the extra investment. One of the most popular current features of laptops is wireless Internet access. With wireless access, you can get on the Internet wherever there is a "hotspot" - an area that the public is allowed to use an Internet signal, whether it's for a fee or free. You can also set up a home network and access the Internet anywhere in your house. Most laptops have slots for network cards, but if you want built-in network access, then make sure your laptop has a built-in network card. It's a nice feature if wireless Internet access appeals to you. So decide what kind of networking features you want. Determine your battery needs. You'll want to look for a laptop with a battery that lasts a long time if you will be taking your laptop on the road (or on the patio with no electrical outlet). Starting up your laptop is a big drain on a battery, and you may not get much time - perhaps only an hour or two - on a standard battery. Look into the warranty and service plan. Computer companies and resellers have varying warranties and service plans for laptops. Some companies have you send your laptop back if anything goes wrong, some want you to take it to a service depot (which may be inconveniently located up to 50 miles away), and others will come to your home or business and repair it on the spot. I hope this will help you..

I bought a laptop a few months ago and for me the most important things that I looked at was the RAM and the hard-drive space that came with the computer. RAM because I want to be able to say with apsoulute sertanty that my computer could run any program that I wanted it to run (eg. photoshop, Flash ect...). Hard-drive space because I don't want to be one of those people walking around with every file they have on a flash drive or portable hard-drive I would rather have all my files on my computer and still have plenty of room for more. My personal requirements for a laptop 3GB of RAM, atleast 120GB hard-drive, and a Good OS maybe not windows but a good OS non the less.
