Laptops under <600$ have Intel core processor, 8GB RAM, and 500 GB hard drive. But if you opt this type, most of the laptops have a cheap plastic frame, low-resolution screen, and weak battery life.

Laptop computers which range between $600 – $800 have a premium design with metal finish. You will get a good resolution screen in this price range and its battery life is quite good.

Cost of the laptops which is more than >$800 are more portable and powerful. It generally has respectable resistant frame, excellent screen resolution, and battery life.

Business and Gaming laptops come with a lot of memory, good screen size, and medium weight. As the name states, it is suitable for business and gaming purposes.

Desktop replacements are well suited for the computer users who plan to move their computer some of the time.

This type of laptop comes with the larger screen and big memory which could replace the functionality of a desktop computer.

Windows 8 and Mac are the new technology operating systems well suited for laptops.

Windows (7 or 8) laptops are more affordable and offer a wide range of choices from major vendors. Also, it provides business-friendly features like biometric and smart card verification.

Mac is the operating system from Apple which is easy to navigate and use. Mac OS X Lion is the latest version of mac and it has advanced technology features.

5. Hybrid or Traditional

The hybrid laptop is nothing but a laptop with two parts whereas the screen is detached with the keyboard. The keyboard base contains USB, extra ports, and battery.

Traditional or convertible laptop resembles normal laptops where the keyboard and screen are attached with a touchscreen option.

    Great tips, Nirmala.
    I would like to say one thing- whenever we go to buy a gadget, it is easy to be awestruck by the high end gadgets we see there.
    It is really important to keep your feet on mother Earth (unless you can afford to spend like you were an oil baron from Saudi Arabia) and keep your requirements in mind.
    Dont get swayed by features which you were not looking for and which will make no difference to you at all.
    Spend sensibly and make sure you get good value for money.

  15. I was planning to buy a laptop in a few months time- as soon as I can afford to buy one.
    Thanks for this awesome article.

  16. Great tips.

    This is what I generally prefer.

    Brand – HP, Dell or Lenovo (if you’re on low budget)
    OS: Hell, windows 8.

    I’m not really into gaming a lot, so I would prefer decent hardware specs and I think that would lower the cost.

    Also, at this point in time, I would stick to the traditional laptop.
