First I would like to tell you no laptop is very good or the worst. Actually, it depends upon your requirements as well as budgets. In numerous another requirement size of the laptop play a big part. A laptop with a huge 17 inches is fantastic if you love to play games on a laptop, watch movies, as well as such big screen size, make you do work easy.

Once after you choose the right screen size, now comes keyboard turn. Keyboard tend to more varied than desktop models. Many laptops have small arrow keys or backslash keys which mainly found on the right rather than left of the keypad. Some laptops have Home, End and Page Up and Page Down keys. In case if there isn’t the physical key for such functions, one needs to use a Function (Fn) key combination instead. Keyboard arrangements are important aspects and also some tough job to select. We strongly recommend you to read the reviews at least one to determine which right combination of keys are fitted to you.
Tip 3:- Pick a Platform
One of the typical question that I once too had. Confused about which OS I need to prefer. Most of the laptops come with one of the very three operating systems: Windows, Chrome OS or Mac OS X (especially for MacBooks). When coming to choose between them, it totally your personal preference.
Tip 4:- Processors
We all know CPU is the brain of the computer and it determines the complexity of the software you can run on your laptop. Today’s most of the laptops feature an Intel® or AMD processor.

Tips 5:- Storage
Now we come at yet another very important point known to be storage. Random-access memory, or say RAM is important and a minimum of 2GB is required if you are buying a laptop for basic computing. But if you’re into graphics and advanced photo or video editing 6GB or more is recommended. Traditionally, the hard disk is used which no wonder offer larger storage capacities, but also add thickness and responsible for generating heat and noise. Alternatively, solid state drives are pretty much lighter, faster, cooler as well as quieter than hard drives but they are somehow costly.

Although the manufacturer claims to offer great battery life it depends upon your usage and way you are dealing with.

Well, we recommend you to read USER’S REVIEW at least one before choosing laptop on battery life.
