Great kudos and big thanks to the ever-changing technology, even if you have used some laptops before, that doesn’t ensure that you’ll not encounter any problem while buying a new one. Laptop manufacturers include new features, which makes it even tougher to select the right kind of machine for you.

There are times when we end up being mesmerized by the big 4k display or some advanced features, even if we don’t need them. The primary thing that one should consider before buying a new machine is the type of tasks to be performed on it.

If you are a video editing enthusiast, then buying a laptop with lesser number of cores will surely not be the right choice. Worry not much, we here at All Naija Entertainment got your ass covered with guides and mistakes to avoid while purchasing a new laptop and save your hard earned cash for other investments.

1. Looking for Cheap Laptops:

The market is full of a variety of laptops priced with an attractive tag. When we plan to buy a new laptop, we sometimes end up looking for some cheaper options.

Now if a computer is priced cheaply, that doesn’t mean it can handle all the process-intensive tasks. While looking for some everyday laptops, we should always keep in mind that the model we are selecting is capable enough to handle the tasks we need to perform.

2. Ignoring the Screen-Size

Screen-Size plays a vital role, mainly if you use your laptop for a more extended period or carry it around at different places. The ideal industry screen-size of a laptop is 15.6 inches.

Although laptops like Dell XPS comes with 13.3″ display, there are some Chromebooks which packs in displays of around 11-inches.

Display plays a significant role in the portability of the laptop. The bigger screen size provides a better viewing experience but increases the weigh and makes the laptop less portable.

So, it depends on you and the type of work that you are planning to do. If you are an architect, then a laptop with a big screen might be useful for drawing with precision.

But if you are a casual user, then a standard 15.6-inches laptop will work perfectly fine.

3. Ignoring Additional Slot for RAM

RAM stands for Random Access Memory. It’s crucial for all the multitasking performed by the laptop. When we go and hunt for a new laptop, we mostly think for the present and end up ignoring the fact whether the laptop has an additional slot for storage or not.

Buying a laptop with 8GB RAM might serve your purpose for today, but in case your workload increase a little bit in the coming years, you surely have to buy a new one if it doesn’t have that additional space for system memory.

According to some research, a laptop should last somewhere around 4 to 5 years to give you the worth of money you’ve spent.

4. Paying Excessive Amount

If you get attracted to every other feature that comes out daily and wants to get a laptop which ticks every box of your wishlist, then you might end up buying something which you don’t need, and as a result of it, you’ll be spending way more than what you need to.

If you a gaming geek, then it’s wise to invest in a gaming laptop, but if you buy one because it looks cool and has that RGB color keyboards, then it might burn your cash.

Always go for what you need rather than what the companies are trying to sell to you. There’s no use of buying a laptop with 2TB SSD when you can get 1TB at a half price of the laptop.

5. Ignoring Connectivity Ports

The array of ports that use to come with a laptop are decreasing day by day. Ethernet ports are removed from most notebooks, and users are mainly dependent on the Wi-Fi for connectivity.

While buying a new laptop, make sure it comes with all the ports that you need for seamless connectivity.

If you want to connect an external monitor to your laptop, then make sure it has an HDMI port, or you need to buy an additional USB to HDMI adapter for getting things done.

Most of the changes are made by taking into consideration – laptop’s portability.

Modern day users demand a light-weight and performance-pack machine at an affordable price range, which can only be possible when the company reduces the extra features not used by a wide variety of its customers.

6. Ignoring Screen Resolution

Similar to RAM and Processor, the screen size and resolution also plays an essential role in the overall quality of the laptop.

When it comes to displays, there are HD, FHD, 4K models available quickly at a pocket-friendly price range.

An HD display serves you a resolution of 1280 x 720 (or 1366 x 768 in most laptops) while the FHD offers 1920 × 1080. Talking about the 4k, you get 3840 x 2160 pixels which make an excellent viewing and computing experience.

Also, with the resolution, the type of display impacts the overall user experience.

The IPS display technology will easily let you work in outdoor conditions while the usual will get some reflections and will create a disturbance while viewing the screen.

7. Not Checking The Hard Drive/Disc

Prior to RAM and body part, while selecting a system to buy, hard drive plays (seemly role as RAM) major role part in a computer because it’s like a store house where your activities on the computer are being saved and kept for usages. A corrupt hard disc/drive will slow-down activities on a computer. Therefore; avoid getting yourself one.

Therefore; do bear this in mind to always check if the hard disc is working perfectly to avoid treating headache for stomach pain. Goodluck!

Conclusion

At last, we would say none of the laptops is perfect to tick all the boxes of your wish-list. It’s necessary that you first take into consideration your needs with the laptop and then buy accordingly.

A decent laptop usually starts at $600 and goes up to $3000. We would only say, it’s your hard-earned cash, invest it wisely.
