How to Choose Best Laptop According to Your Need: Laptop Buying Guide

Display

A laptop screen is the first thing, you will interact with most. There are three types of display: TN, OLED, and IPS. The TN display type is used in older laptops, and OLED panels look amazing. Oled panels are terrible for battery life. You should pick the IPS type display option. Websites and games are tuned for IPS display. If the color is important for you then you can choose SRGB, ADOBE RGB, and ProPhoto RGB display options.

CPU

AMD Ryzen and Intel are the two CPUs in the market. AMD CPUs are faster as the number ranks up. You can pick both the Ryzen 4000 and Ryzen 5000 series processors. These processors have great efficiency and performance in compact laptops.

GPU

If you want a laptop for school or work, then you can pick either GTX 1650 or RTX 3050. Here are a couple of budget-friendly options. You can choose whatever has the best offer on sale. If you want a powerful enough AAA games title, or high refresh rate panel, then you can pick RTX 3060.

RAM

Users should get at least 8 GB of RAM. Windows and Google Chrome will work quickly in 8 GB RAM options. If it is not in your budget, then purchase such a laptop that can be upgraded later.

Storage

You should purchase at least 500 GB SSD storage capacity laptops. If your budget is short, and you can only purchase 256 GB, then make sure that the laptop can be upgraded. If your old laptop is slow, then you can upgrade the storage and RAM to make it faster.

Battery Life

The battery life depends on your GPU, CPU, and display. You can check the real battery life via several reviews. Over 6 hours of battery life is pretty good for a new laptop.

Keyboard & Trackpad

Watching some reviews is the easiest way to check the quality of the keyboard and trackpad. For faster typing, you can use another physical keyboard.

Conclusion

You can keep these things in mind before buying a new laptop. The laptop needs a lot of care. You should not use local parts and power supply cables or adapters because they can harm your laptop badly.
