The special reason for this is the effect on the warranty.
As a good brand like HP, Acer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo, these laptops will be available as well as their service center and anywhere.
Therefore, anytime within the warranty period, your laptop is damaged, you can easily fix your laptop for free.
And, the good service and response of the good brand’s laptop company service centers are very good.
Moreover, a good brand is always trustworthy and the hardware parts of the laptop rely on the original and good quality.
So, before taking a laptop for yourself, be sure to look into its brand and company.
In this, you will not have to face difficulties in the future.
But today I will tell you what you need to know before buying a laptop, it can be any brand. It is very important to know well in advance about that.
To make sure you know what kind of laptop is best or how to pick a good laptop, you need to know about these 10 things below.
Because these 10 things are the best ones that can differentiate between low quality and a good laptop.
However, keep in mind that depending on your budget or how much money you are going to buy a laptop will also depend on many cases.
Moreover, depending on what you intend to buy a laptop for, but the good or bad of a laptop depends on you.
Depending on the purpose of buying your laptop, whether playing games or simply typing, browsing entertainment and the Internet, or running heavy software (AutoCad, Premier Pro, Rendering, etc.).
However, in order to pick a laptop that has a fast, fast, good display quality, warranty, and urgent features, no matter your budget, here are 10 things to know before buying a laptop.
1. Latest Windows OS
Most commonly used on a laptop or computer, “Windows Operating System”. So, before buying a laptop, you should check whether you have been given the latest Microsoft Windows OS.
Today the latest Windows OS is called “Windows 10”. Also, make sure your laptop does not have older Windows versions such as Windows 7 or Windows 8.
But the performance of your laptop will change a lot.
This is because Windows 10 is much better quality than many older versions of Windows, and many improvements have been made to this version in various issues.
2. Display quality
Most budget laptops have low quality or low-resolution displays. This type of display has a resolution of (1366 x 768) or less where you will not get a more clear or clear display.
Hey, this kind of display is best for general tasks. But, you won’t find that fun while watching movies or playing games.
So, before buying a laptop, you should see that it has Full HD (1920 x 1080) or a 1080p resolution display.
3. Screen Size
I won’t say much about the laptop screen size. Because it depends entirely on your own needs.
However, I have used different sizes of laptops.
And, for those who work more on laptops and travel more with laptops, I think 12- to 13-inch laptops are best.
This is because a laptop of 12 to 8 inches size is very light and can be easily taken anywhere.
Laptops with such screen sizes will be slightly smaller.
Moreover, if you are buying a laptop for watching movies or playing games, a 15 or 17-inch laptop would be best for you.
Laptops with a 15-inch size are common among people, and if you want a fairly large screen, this size is best for you. However, a 17-inch laptop is something many gamers like.
Therefore, laptops 15 inches and 17 inches are best for movies and gaming. And for the rest of the work, the laptop will always have a screen size of 13, 14 or 15 inches.
4. Battery Backup
A laptop means using it without a designated place. And, in this case, it is not possible to run a laptop with power all the time.
So, whether you are buying a laptop for work or for entertainment, you will surely want your laptop to run for about 7 to 8 hours without power backup.
And so, be careful when traveling or anytime with just a battery backup so you can run the laptop for 7 to 8 hours.
And for that, you must know about battery backup before buying a laptop. But it is important for you to know in advance.
5. Keyboard & Touchpad quality
Laptop keyboards and touchpads, but you must look. Often times, people do not see this before buying a laptop and then face major problems with the keyboard and touchpad.
So, you can see what the quality of the keyboard, whether the buttons are easily available in your hand, the quality of the button and whether the touchpad is convenient. There are many laptops that are nice to look at but its touchpad is not comfortable. You must take care of that.
6. Processor or CPU
The performance of a laptop depends on the CPU or processor of your laptop. 70% of us do not have any validation of the processor when buying a laptop.
And, due to the low or low-quality processor, our laptop doesn’t work fast or fast. Remember, the better the quality of your laptop’s CPU or processor, the faster and better you will get.
The processor on your computer or laptop will always get better performance if you have dual-core or more core such as quad-core. Never buy a laptop with a single-core processor. If your laptop has Intel Atom, Intel Pentium, Intel Celeron dual-core or AMD A6 processor, then this CPU is sufficient for simple word processing, writing work, use of common software, watching normal quality videos and browsing the internet. If your budget is a bit high and you want to buy a high-performance laptop, you can buy a laptop with Intel Core i5, Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen series processors. With good graphics, games play, full HD video viewing, video editing, and some heavy lifting software, multi-tasking can easily do this kind of processor.
Therefore, the better the quality CPU or processor you have on your laptop, the stronger and faster your laptop will work.
Moreover, the more the processor of a new generation, the better its performance and the less battery power it will use.
7. Other Hardware Specifications – (RAM)
For a laptop to work faster and smooth rather than hang from time to time, the importance of RAM on a laptop is immense.
Remember, the more RAM you have on your laptop, the more power it can have. With more RAM, you will get hang free and lag-free performance. Especially for gaming and heavy software.
Due to the high RAM, your laptop will work much faster, process any program easily and quickly, reduce the chance of hang-ups and multi-tasking easily.
So, be aware that at least 4GB to 8GB of RAM is in your laptop, so be sure to know.
Lastly, keep in mind that the higher the RAM frequency and DDR range, the higher its performance.
8. Storage Capacity
In general, after buying a laptop, you usually put some movies, games, software, music or photo into the laptop. Moreover, we need some space to install Windows OS.
So, 500 GB storage or hard disk is enough for these simple things.
Nowadays, however, the advanced hard disk is out. And, those are called SSD (solid-state drive).
This type of SSD hard disk works much better and faster than ordinary HDD storage.
However, the cost of SSD hard disks is much higher than that of ordinary hard disks.
9. Other features & functions
After paying close attention to all the issues, let’s look at some of the common features and functions of laptops.
First, check if your surviving laptop has a USB 3.0 port. These types of USB ports can transfer or receive files much faster through Pendrive or other external storage. Second, you should also check if there is a DVD writer. Hey, nowadays a DVD disc is much less used.
But, I think it’s important to have a DVD drive on the laptop. Because of this, you can easily format windows with a bootable disc. Moreover, you are given a DVD disc to install driver software for different hardware. And, if you don’t have a DVD drive, you can’t install them on a laptop.
But hey, you can download and install driver software online, though it is not possible to do this properly for everyone. So, make sure you have a DVD drive on your laptop.
10. M.2 / SSD Slot
Before buying a laptop, you must check whether this laptop has SSD / M.2 the slot. This is because using SSD / M.2 allows your PC to use a lot of heavy software, so your PC will not slow down at all.
Keeping this in mind, you can enjoy the good performance even if your budget is low. Keeping these things in mind, I hope you do not face any problems.
