What to consider when buying a laptop?

   The laptop market in Vietnam as well as the world is very diverse, with many different models, designs, configurations, and many different technologies. If you are looking to buy a laptop, you will be very confused and confused about which one to buy, which brand, which type, how to configure, right?
   Therefore, today webnhanhvn will advise you on the important things and should be kept in mind when buying a laptop for the first time.
1. CPU (Main Processor)

   The current popular CPU is Core i, including Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Core M. But you not only care how much Core i but also what generation this CPU should be. Maybe the first generation Core i7 will be weaker than the 5th generation Core i5.
In addition to being more powerful, the next generation CPU has many other improvements and thermodynamics and other functions as well. So webnhanvn recommends you choose the latest or near latest generation CPU.
2. Memory RAM

   Often, many of you only care about Ram capacity, the correct amount of Ram is a necessary parameter but not enough. You need to be more concerned about Ram speed, which is the data transfer rate of Ram, that is Buss, the higher the Buss, the better.
   If the RAM capacity is high but the Buss is low, it is not strong at all. For example, 16GB Ram that buss 1333 will be weaker than Ram 4Gb that buss 1866.
3. Hard drive

   There are 2 common types that are HDD and SSD, SSD speed is many times faster than HDD, according to practical experience, I find it nearly 10 times faster (and the parameters often say dozens of times faster).
   And the price of SSD is also quite expensive. If you need a lot of storage and don't need a lot of speed, then using an HDD is ok. SDD speed is extremely fast but the capacity is low, if the capacity is high, the price is sky high.
4. Video Card (VGA)

   If you need to use powerful graphics and video processing, then you should use a discrete video card. If not, use the onboard video card to keep the device from overheating and safe from VGA errors.
5. Communication port

   Maybe many of you still think that any laptop has USB, VGA, DVI, Serial, and HDMI ports available. However, the truth is quite harsh: in order to reduce factory costs, laptops are manufactured with fewer communication ports than desktop computers.
Therefore, the cheap laptop rewards only 2 USB ports, no HDMI port and only one VGA port to connect to an external monitor.    Therefore, you should carefully study the product parameters before deciding to buy, to make sure there are enough ports for all your accessories.
   Another factor to consider: most laptops come with a network (LAN) card included. However, not all models have a discrete card slot available (Some thin laptops often remove this port).
6. Screen Size

   Need to carefully consider the need to use the screen before deciding to buy a new laptop. Do you think a 17-inch screen is the right fit? Oops, 17-inch is .. too loud in the laptop world!
   Because laptops are designed to be carried on the road, brought into the meeting room, put on the bed, put in a suitcase, and so on. Therefore, the larger the screen, the heavier and bulkier the machine will be. A 14-inch monitor is the ideal size for these needs.
7. Battery

   Batteries are extremely important. But that is not the deciding factor when buying a laptop. If the supplied battery does not meet your needs, you can replace the battery with a longer life. Or simply buy extra batteries.
   The common type of battery now uses 4 or 6 cells, the new technology uses only 3 cells to reduce weight but the battery capacity is still the same. Even higher than the old 6 cell type. One last thing to note: a larger battery will affect the appearance of a laptop, especially with slim-compact-style models.
