Laptops have become necessary in today’s time and the best part is that you can easily take it anywhere and do your work, that is why everybody wants to buy a good and cheap laptop but the problem is that we are unaware of those things that a good laptop should have so we ask someone who we think is more knowledgeable about all these things, and after that we are in a position to take any laptop.
This is almost a big problem because buying a laptop without knowing which is best or what a laptop should have, not worth anyway.There are so many websites are on the internet where you get the list of Laptops which is worth in price and best in the category but have you ever thought whether the criteria they are choosing for giving you the list of best laptops are meeting your criteria or not.
Most people don’t know the fact but they are just believing on the sites and after that, they are getting problems in their laptop and there is no one to blame about.
So here I m going to tell you the way how to choose a laptop that will help you to choose best from the lot of options, after reading this Blog, you, definitely will not become the master of all the things but it will give you some basic Idea so lets start from the first thing that is
An Operating System (OS) is an interface between you and computer, It performs all the basic tasks and controls all peripheral devices such as printers, scanners etc. so choosing an operating system is a very important thing because when you feel easy to operate anything you will love that.
you can choose from the list-Microsoft windows-
Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7
They all are fast, user-friendly, best and has great security features if you got it installed on your new laptop
You can take it without thinking.
It seems like a mixture of Windows and Macintosh as its shortcut keys are similar to windows, on the other hand, it looks like a mac.
the best thing is that each and every Ubuntu applications are all free and open source, from the operating system to security updates, storage to software, it is fast to load, easy to use and available in most languages. Anyone can access it easily. Best for small business work.
The Android OS is an open source operating system, it is based on the Linux operating system, it was initially developed by Android Inc.and was eventually purchased by Google in 2005.It definitely falls into the category of the good operating system too because it gives great customization options, it is very simple and safe.
Google Chrome OS
It is designed by Google that is based on the Linux kernel and uses the Google Chrome web browser as its principal user interface. As a result, Chrome OS primarily supports web applications.It is a best operating system of its kind because it is safer than any other operating system.
One important thing that you should know that sometimes you get the best deal with some laptops having DOS operating system, in that case, you can take this laptop and just remove that OS and install a usable one like windows, ubuntu, android, chrome etc because this OS is too old to operate.
Every thing that works on the computer is because of the processor, this is the heart of the computer. The central processor of a computer is also known as the CPU, or “central processing unit.”
In a simple word
Anything that processes for you is called processor, so if you give a command to the computer to do anything
then the processor will do it by reading it and then execute data for you.And how speedily it happens is called processor speed.Processor speed measures the number of instructions per second the computer executes(in megahertz or gigahertz).
There are two primary manufacturers of computer processors(microprocessors).
Intel -Celeron, Pentium and Core i3,i4,i5,i6,i7
AMD -Sempron, Athlon, and Phenom
For purchasing a budget laptop in the range of 20k to 25k you can take AMD processor because in that range you will get the much better performance in AMD rather than in Intel. The only drawback is that it consumes much power than Intel.
For purchasing budget laptop in the range of 25k to 35k, if you get core i4 then go for it otherwise if you get AMD 8 with the latest core then go for it
Each core is a central processing unit (CPU) that can perform tasks so one single-core CPU can only perform one task at a time and that’s why multi-core CPUs come into play, they are
Dual core -it can perform 2 task at a time
Quad core-it can perform 4 task at a time
Octa core-it can perform 8 task at a time
So from here, you get the idea that multi core processor is good, but for simple use of computer dual core and quad core processor is sufficient.
But if you are a gamer then you should go for the latest one.
Read-only memory-It stores data for you while working on a computer and lost when the power is turned off.it’s a volatile memory.If I will go in deep you will get confused so I just give you the basic details about Ram that is presently used in computers.Firstly you should know about-
DRAM -dynamic random access memory now we are going to know about its type
SDRAM -Synchronous dynamic random access memory is a kind of DRAM.it synchronized with clock-speed of the processor and increases the Power of processor in multitasking.
DDR-Double data rate-DDR basically doubles the rate of data transfer of standard SDRAM by transferring data on the up and down tick of a clock cycle, it is the new variant of SDRAM. As time passes, new changes in it occurs, they are
The main difference with all is that as the newer version comes, it reduces the voltage consumption and increase in data transfer speed but one thing I want to say and you should keep it in mind that latest is always good but you can’t say that older versions have been junk. For a budget laptop and for simple work you can choose older version too.
Now the question is, how much RAM is required ???
1GB– If you are using a Linux variant and you are very specific with your work you can go for it, but it will not sufficient for today’s users because you can’t work smoothly on many apps, It will also be stuck when you browse heavy sites.
2GB– This will be fine for office work and basic internet browsing, but you
may find things occasionally slow down.
4GB– It is sufficient for all kind of work, you can play games, you can make videos and edit them easily.
8GB or more– The level of satisfaction increases as it increases.
4-Hardware interface –
Connecting and transferring data from hard disk drives (HDDs) to computer systems, you can understand this by an example-
If you have ordered anything from an online store then how you will get that item ??
Of course with the help of courier service.Here courier service becomes the interface between you and online store.
that’s what hardware interface is, it connects hard disk drives (HDDs) to a computer.
They are basically of two types- PATA, SATA
Parallel ATA(PATA)-use parallel signaling.
Serial ATA (SATA)-serial signaling technology.
Mostly you will get SATA in laptops so you can go for it.Sometimes you will get eSATA.
eSATA is an extension to the Serial ATA standard that enables SATA drives to be attached externally.
There are two general types of hard drives:
(HDD) hard disk drives – which use one or more rotating discs and rely on magnetic storage.
(SSD) solid-state drives -which have no moving mechanical parts, but use flash memory like the kind found in USB flash drives.
SSD drive is very safe because there are fewer chances to lose your data but the only drawback to buying an SSD is cost, and that is the reason why Apple laptops are most costlier than others because they mostly use SSDs.
So if you want to buy a budget laptop you can go for HDDs.such as
500GB,1 TB,2 TB as per your requirement.
