Some details you should not ignore when buying a new laptop

   Laptops help you complete work or entertainment in your spare time, but choosing the right laptop is not simple at all.
   There are many factors to consider when buying a new laptop, such as design, hardware specifications, battery life, and so on. Even when choosing them, there are still a bunch of other important factors that many people often overlook.
   This article would like to send you 11 factors on laptops that you should pay attention to when choosing to buy according to linkgame's summary:
1. Webcam location

   It sounds weird, but it's true. The most important thing when buying a laptop today is seeing where its webcam is located. Many manufacturers to thin the screen border should have moved the webcam to another place, they can be placed under the keyboard, under the screen or right on the hinge.
   There is no perfect place like the traditional placement (on the screen), so if you regularly use the webcam, don't forget to check where it is. If you put it in a strange location, try it and see if it is convenient.
2. Is there a separate charging port?

   Many new laptop models are now equipped with a versatile USB Type-C port that can both charge the device, charge other devices or connect to peripherals. Some machines have both a USB-C port and a manufacturer's own charging port, which can be a bit confusing.
   Check if the laptop you are about to buy has a USB-C port, if so, ask if that port can charge the battery. Sharing a smartphone and laptop with a rechargeable USB-C port will help you reduce the amount of cables you have to carry.3. Does the USB-C port have Thunderbolt 3?The inclusion of Thunderbolt 3 for the USB-C port offers a lot of advantages. In addition to battery charging, with large bandwidth you can use that port to output to an external 4K display, even an eGPU to increase graphics power.    Laptops with USB-C ports equipped with Thunderbolt 3 often have a thunderbolt icon next to them (except for MacBook Pro 2016, 2017, 2018 and MacBook Air 2018).
4. SSD or HDD?

   One of the other extremely important factors that every laptop should have is an SSD hard drive. Compared to conventional mechanical hard drives (HDDs), SSD flash drives offer much higher speeds, shortening startup and application loading times.
Unless you have very little money, you should choose a laptop with an SSD. You can also buy a laptop with an HDD and then replace the SSD, or have an empty SSD slot as possible because it will use 2 hard drives.
5. Standard RAM
   Many laptop buyers often choose RAM as much as possible, but another factor is the RAM standard. Usually, the standard RAM on popular laptops today is DDR3 or DDR4.
   Although you may not notice a noticeable difference, you should choose a laptop with DDR4 RAM because it consumes less power and gives a higher data transfer rate.
6. Integrated or discrete GPU?

   For those of you who often use graphics software or play games, choosing a laptop with an integrated or discrete GPU is a rather "headache" problem because laptops equipped with discrete GPUs are often more expensive.
   If you really need to edit photos, edit movies, play games, etc., in short, jobs that require high graphics power, a laptop with a discrete GPU is a better choice. In addition to performance, the integrated GPU uses part of the computer's RAM, while the discrete GPU has its own memory so the machine's RAM is not affected (unless it has to be shared in some cases).
7. Screen Brightness

   In addition to the resolution or panel, screen brightness is also an extremely important factor. Unless just left in the room or at home, taking it on a trip or going to a cafe, but the screen is dark even when the brightness is maxed, it's really annoying. Without going too deep, try to choose laptops with screen brightness above 300 nit.
8. Is there a cooling fan?

   To create ultra-thin and light laptops, manufacturers have removed the cooling fan and used alternative methods to cool the machine.
   However, unless you only use the laptop for office work, surfing the web, watching movies, you should not choose a laptop without a fan. Although very thin and without fan noise, the CPU will have to do a lot of processing, even "squeezing" the clock down more slowly to reduce heat when running multiple programs at the same time. CPUs for laptops without fans also have quite low capacity and performance.
   In general, fanless laptops are a double-edged sword, and you need to know what your needs are before choosing to buy them.
9. Synaptics trackpad or Windows Precision?

   With Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a new series of multitasking gestures, but they only work when the trackpad on the machine is compatible with the Windows Precision driver.
   When buying a laptop, if possible, check if the trackpad on the machine uses the Windows Precision driver or not. According to MakeUseOf, it works accurately and is much faster than the Synaptics trackpad.
   To check the trackpad driver on the laptop, go to Settings -> Devices -> Mouse and Trackpad, if you see the line Your PC has a precision touchpad, it means the trackpad is installing the Windows Precision driver.
10. Is the keyboard backlit?

   If often used in the dark, choose a laptop with a backlit keyboard for better support. Many popular laptop models now have a backlight for the keyboard, so it is no longer a luxury feature.

11. CPU type and model
   Finally, it is to choose the type of CPU that best suits your needs, not lacking and not superfluous (lack is annoying, excess costs money). Not just Core i3, i5 or i7, but also the generation and type of chip.
