In Easy Steps: In selecting the best laptop go for the basics – Part 2

Then further probing into the spec-sheet, look for the basic things as processor kind, hard drive options and RAM. Though every OEM offers the best that is available in the market, sometimes the competitor offers Core i5 instead of Core i3 for the same price, sometimes there is a considerable difference in the RAM capacity. This all adds up to the best combination.

One important thing to remember in this process is the hard drive. Due to the reason that SSD (solid-state drives) prices have decreased considerably in the past one year, it is a good alternative to 7200 or 5400 rpm HDDs. However, there will also be a considerable difference in the capacity. SSDs have low storage capacity as compared to HDDs for almost the same price. Process the notion how much storage capacity do you need and mull it over. SSDs are quick to boot and there is a considerable difference in booting up and shutting down timing (almost a split difference).

Not only are SSDs fast at booting but the overall computing experience is different on systems that have them. Applications run launch and run faster and search and finding files is a quicker process on these laptops.

Hard drive selection winds up the online search process. Now it is time to make haste to the shop for actual selection of the device. Make sure that you have three or more options on the list to select from.

Once at the shop, take your time to scrutinize every one of the alternatives. Though the steps are very basic, they need to be given ample time so that the purchase has little margin for errors.

The first and foremost is the booting time. Boot every one of the laptops from a complete shutdown. Allow yourself to measure the general timing of every device reaching the desktop. Repeat the step in reverse process to shut it down. This, otherwise vague step, will let you know the booting and shutdown timing of the device, the shorter the better.
