How to choose a laptop is a very simple question for a technical specialist.
But how to solve this issue to an ordinary user who has no knowledge of information technology?
Virtually any technique is first selected byCharacteristics, and then - according to reviews. Start the search with Yandex.Market or any computer online store with the filtering of goods by characteristics.
Choose a manufacturer. If your budget is 20 thousand rubles or lower - the brand does not really matter, since laptops have almost the same stuffing, differing only in design. In addition to Lenovo, which received a very negative assessment in Russia.
With a budget of 25 thousand, an excellent option would beLaptop Sony Vaio E or S series (the latter is preferable because of the speed and quality of the display). With a budget of 35 thousand, you can become the owner of one of the most convenient laptops in the world - the Apple MacBook.
Choose the brain of the computer - the processor. Do not want to wait 10 seconds after each click? Then choose a dual-core processor with a frequency of at least 2.5 GHz. If you need a gaming laptop - choose a quad-core processor with a frequency of at least 2 GHz.
Choose a diagonal. The larger the screen diagonal, the larger the dimensions and weight of the laptop. Pocket notebooks have a diagonal of 6 to 8 inches. The optimal option for a working laptop is 14 inches, for business trips - from 11 to 13 inches, for games - from 16 inches.
Choose a hard disk. We are interested in 2 parameters: volume and interface. The amount depends on your needs, preferably from 250 GB, the interface - SATA-II or SATA-III.
We choose additional devices and interfaces. Think about what you might find useful from this list:
2. VGA, DVI or HDMI - to connect to a monitor or projector.
3. RJ-45 - for wired internet connection.
4. Built-in speaker
5. Audio card - for connecting headphones and microphone
6. DVD drive
7. Video card - in conventional notebooks it is built-in, but if you need high-quality color rendering (or you are an avid gamer), then choose a discrete graphics card.
9. Wi-Fi - for wireless Internet.
Check for preinstalled operating roomSystem. If it does not exist, you will have to spend a lot of time looking for someone who could install it, and most likely install not licensed hacked software, with which you will also get a lot of problems.
This does not apply to Apple laptops, which always have native OS X.
After filtering by the characteristics of youFor sure there are only 5-10 laptops. Search the Internet and Yandex.Market reviews about each laptop. Choose 2-3 laptops with the least critical reviews.
We go to the nearest computer store and estimateThe type of each candidate. Pay attention to the material from which the body is made and the display - is the image distorted when viewed from different angles?
Having decided with a choice, safely ordera laptop. You can do this both in the store and on the Internet. The main thing is to carefully inspect the laptop for damage (especially the screen) and check if the warranty card is not backdated.
Successful shopping for you!
