1. What is Your Budget?

The first and most important part is your Budget. How much are you willing to spend on your laptop? People often tend to ignore this question and end up shaking their budget by buying a lot more expensive laptop. There are end number of options but don’t get fooled by them and decide what your pocket allows.

2. Processor (Intel or AMD)

Next part deals with the need and requirement for which you are buying a new laptop. As a processor is responsible for the speed of the laptop, thus if you are more into multitasking then, then you surely need a tough one. Nowadays you will mostly come across AMD CPU or Intel and if you ask me, personally I prefer the Intel than the AMD CPU because they are more powerful. So in simple words, you cannot ignore this part else you will be frustrated by the continuous ‘hang issue’ of your laptop.

3. Storage? (Hard Disk)

Storage is again one of the most important aspects to add in Laptop specification list. Saving photos, videos, documents, movies are just a ‘must’ and for to save them you definitely need a good amount of space. Mostly small laptops will provide you approx 300GB storage capacity but if you are looking for more, go for those laptops with hard disk space of 500 GB or 1 TB. Depending upon you budget choose whatever suits you. Also, make sure to do a thorough research before finalizing ‘the one’.

4. Screen Size

While looking for ideal screen size, you must ask yourself what is the purpose of the laptop?
If are just buying it to comfortably Netflix and movies, go for a bigger screen. Say about 17 inches will precisely fulfil your needs. But if you need is to surf internet, making notes, PPT, Spreadsheet, more of a formal use, you must go for a small size. 14.1 will be an ideal size for you then. Also because of its compact nature, you can carry them easily to workplace.

5. Graphic Processor

No one likes watching pixilated videos on a date night. Even when it comes to playing those highly paid game series. Graphics are just non-negotiable and if you are one of those Netflix addict then they can cause you great pan while watching it. So its always better to understand your needs and they choose. Thus, go for the one which have HD and Full HD video support.
