The processor, also known as the CPU, is the heart of your laptop, responsible for executing tasks and determining overall performance. For basic tasks like web browsing, email, and document editing, an Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3 processor should suffice.
For more demanding tasks like video editing, graphic design, or gaming, consider an Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 processor. If you’re a power user or professional, an Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 processor might be a better fit.
RAM is the temporary storage space your laptop uses to hold data while you’re working. The more RAM you have, the more applications you can run smoothly simultaneously. For basic tasks, 4GB of RAM is the minimum requirement. We highly recommend machines with 8GB or more as this provides a much more enjoyable experience.
For multitasking, video editing, or gaming, consider 16GB of RAM. If you’re a power user or professional, 32GB of RAM or more might be necessary if the software you are using requires it.
Storage refers to the long-term memory space on your laptop where you store files, programs, and operating system data. Solid-state drives (SSDs) are the preferred choice over traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) due to their superior speed, reliability, and shock resistance.
For every day tasks, 256GB of SSD storage is a good starting point. For storing a large collection of photos, videos, or games, consider 512GB or 1TB of SSD storage. You can also check if you have an existing laptop how much space you’ve used, and compare that to how long you’ve had the machine. Think about how long it would take you to create that much data again.
A laptop screen is the window into your digital world. For basic tasks, a 13-14 inch display is sufficient. For more immersive viewing, consider a 15-16 inch, high-resolution display.
Screen sizes are measured diagonally from the bottom left to the upper right corner, as this provides the most accurate representation of the overall viewing area. It encompasses both the width and height, giving you a single value that accurately reflects the overall size of the screen. This method is consistently used across various devices, including televisions, computer monitors, laptops, and smartphones.
A dedicated graphics card is crucial for gaming and really helps improve the performance of graphics-intensive tasks like video editing, and graphic design. Integrated graphics chips are more common and sufficient for all your day-to-day tasks and lightweight games, but may not be powerful enough if you are hardcore gaming or doing high-end CAD design or video editing.
