Buyer's Guide: Laptop Computers that Fit the Way You Compute
When it comes to computer technology, finding the right machine can be like hitting a moving target. Technology moves fast, so fast that it can be hard to keep up. Not long ago, less than a decade ago, in fact, laptop computers were expensive toys reserved for high-powered executives who needed the mobility of working on the road. Most people who owned computers owned desktop computers, and laptop computers were more an accessory - a way for businessmen to bring their work home from the office.
Average Amy uses her computer to surf the web, check her email, play a few computer games and keep up with her Facebook friends. Her web surfing often takes her to shopping sites and to Hulu, where she catches up on her favorite television shows and podcasts.
Amy's best bet is a nice all-purpose laptop with at least 2GB of RAM and a Dual Core AMD or Intel CPU. Chances are that she'll be quite happy with an HP laptop computer in the 14 to 17-inch size range. The most popular HP laptop computers are aimed squarely at home and hobby computer users who need more computing power than most netbooks supply, but not as much as a gaming laptop computer.
Businessman Bob uses his laptop to run figures, create sales presentations and put together business plans and budgets. His work involves a lot of web surfing and email checking, of course, but he also needs the power to handle business graphics smoothly. Since he travels, battery longevity is vital to him, and good sound is an added plus.
Bob should take a serious look at the full line of Dell laptop computers. While Dell has been courting the student and home market lately, their bread and butter has always been the business computer and they still do business computers. With an excellent blend of economy and high-end features, they do it better than almost anyone.
Schoolgirl Sally needs a blend of power and portability. She's constantly on the run between classes, dorm and activities, and her laptop computer needs to pack up quick and easy to go with her. At the same time, she needs some serious computing power to deal with the technical apps she runs like graphics and 3-D modeling software and high-end CAD applications. And of course, she wants a machine that will keep up with her gaming, and it had better be wrapped up all pretty in a hot, stylin' case.
Sally wants the company that pioneered the ultraportable - Toshiba's Portege line was making Toshiba laptop computers under 12 inches nearly 10 years ago. She'll be thrilled with an ultrathin ultra-light Toshiba Satellite, Tecra or Portege with up to 4GB RAM, high-powered processor and 500GB hard drive to hold all of her important papers. That's more than enough processing power to run all of her important apps and to keep her scoring high on the gaming front, too.
