Top Laptop Buying Guide

Choosing the laptop requires time and effort put into research. Here are a few things you should be familiar with before spending a couple hundred on a laptop.

Operating system
Laptops without OS might be appealing with low prices but if you check to install Windows later, it might cost you more and the savings you thought you had will cancel out.

Battery life
If the maker has given you a guaranteed battery life, we suggest you take it with a grain of salt. The battery life is usually achieved under certain usage scenario and we know that everyone uses their laptops very differently.

Brand
Almost every brand now has several options available from Rs 20,000 onwards. The most preferred names are HP, Dell and Lenovo, but don’t count out the other brands. Asus, Acer and Toshiba have great reputations.

Very important to ask yourself, what are you using the laptop for? Is it for heavy duty work load, how much storing will you be doing? Is it for a college student – in this case, things like battery life and affordability might be in your radar. Is it going to be used for gaming, or photography? Consider your career, professional, workload, and make a decision based on that rather than aesthetics.
