Laptop-Buying-Guide-2012Laptops buying guide 2017 (updated)

A laptop is a boon for students, executives and even home users who want something really compact with which they can move about indoors. Most laptops have built-in webcam, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth which usually isn’t a feature of desktop PCs. Today you can buy a decently powerful laptop for under Rs 25,000. You get a i3 processor, at least 4 GB of RAM, 500 GB hard disk, DVD writer and a 14-inch or 15.6Inch display. This configuration is ideal for students and home and office users who want a laptop for just basic applications and light entertainment. At increasing price points you get additional features and more powerful hardware such as larger display, better processor, discrete graphics, more RAM and storage space, USB 3.0 ports, and so on.

Various brands offer multiple combinations of these hardware at various price points. Accordingly the models fall under the brand’s budget, mainstream, entertainment, high-end and gaming segments. When buying a laptop you have to select the ideal combination of hardware that suits your needs and budget. With various brands offering dozens of models to choose from, deciding on the ideal model can be a bit confusing.

It’s all the more difficult with older generation models selling at a very low price and the attractive schemes offered by the vendors. If you’re planning to buy a laptop or recommend a model to someone, here are some tips that will help you make the correct buying decision. After all, it’s an expensive investment that you will use for the next few years down the line.

7 TIPS FOR BUYING LAPTOPS

Latest Hardware: Make sure you get the latest generation hardware, especially the CPU. Newer Intel Core CPUs can be identified by four-digit model numbers; older generations models had three-digit numbers. Unless older laptops are available really cheap, we suggest sticking to the latest platform for better service and availability of spare parts.

Screen size vs portability: Laptops with smaller display are lighter and easier to carry, but a large screen (for example 15.6-inch) offers better viewing comfort and allows for a larger keyboard. Good ergonomics with a smaller screen (for example 13.3-inch) is challenging for the manufacturer.

Discrete Graphics: When it comes to accelerating video playback and adding filters to videos while transcoding, GPUs are more efficient than the processor. Entry level GPUs such as AMD Radeon HD 6470M and Nvidia GeForce GT 520M are good for media playback, and the Radeon HD 6630M and GeForce GT 560M are good for gaming.

Form and Design: In additional to the budget, you may also want to give priority to the form and design. If you want a road warrior that’s extremely light, then make sure the battery life is not compromised. If you want extreme durability, you can choose from the Panasonic Toughbook or Dell Latitude ATG and XFR series of rugged laptops.

Try before you buy: The lap[top’s design and configuration look attractive in advertisement, but you cannot judge the build, display, audio quality and ergonomics unless you have a look and feel. The best place to try out laptops is a mall or a brand’s exclusive store. Physically assess the construction, keyboard, mouse, and audio.

Getting a good deal: A simple way to get a good deal is to note the prices of the same configuration offered by the top brands in the market. Settle for the one selling for the best price, of course after weighing the pros and cons. Also take into consideration additional features and ongoing offers.

Extra features are a bonus: Features such as USB 3.0, eSATA and FireWire ports differ between models. Consider these features as bonuses. They will come in very handy in the future, with high-speed storage devices. Some vendors offer free laptop bags, portable speakers, external DVD writers and laptop mice. These are most welcome.

Under 25k Laptops available at your favorite online stores.
