1} CPU & GPU Options
When it comes to laptops, it’s very difficult to turn a blind eye towards the sea of Intel based laptops. Intel’s portfolio is simply huge compared to AMD. That being said, there are really powerful options to consider on both fronts. Intel’s Tiger Lake processors have shown incredible performance numbers on both single and multi-core tests. These processors have been supercharged, especially for Adobe applications.
AMD has also made some huge strides with its Ryzen CPUs. AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 series bring the new Zen 3 architecture to thin and light laptops. Models like the Ryzen 5980HS drawing 35W power are proven to reach the performance levels of the desktop Ryzen 5 5600X. The new Ryzen CPU shows incredible figures across the board, surpassing anything Intel currently has to offer.
Think of the CPU (central processing unit) as the heart of your laptop. When it comes to CPU, you can’t get much better than Intel’s Core-based range.
New laptops will most likely contain Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7.Core i3 in entry-level laptops.
Core i5 in the majority of mid-range laptops.
Core i7 in higher-end laptops. While Core i7 offers the best performance, it can cause quite a bit of heat to emanate from the bottom of the device. Keep this in mind if you plan to use your laptop, well, on your lap
A Graphics Processing Unit, or GPU, is a chip that generates all images you see on the screen. Most laptops ship with integrated graphics, which means the component is mounted inside the main processor. For instance, nearly all Intel laptop chips include integrated graphics. AMD produces accelerated processing units, that combine CPU and GPU cores on the same chip (die) in a similar fashion.
Discrete GPU’s have an additional graphics chip/module soldered into the motherboard. These chips are referred to as “discrete GPUs,” and typically can’t be removed by the typical laptop owner. Nvidia and AMD are the primary vendors of this chips.
RAM often referred to as system refers to dedicated hardware for temporarily storing and accessing information for immediate use. All current tasks store data in RAM, like the web browser currently displaying this guide.
Essentially, the more RAM, the more information a computer can call up at any given time, and thus the more things it can do at any time. However, unlike storage (see below), RAM does not store data indefinitely. Once RAM loses power, all held data is lost.
The amount of storage space on a laptop’s internal drive(s) is how much data it can hold in total indefinitely. All data, from installed programs to downloaded music, reside on an internal storage device. These devices either rely on traditional platter-based hard drive technology or NAND Flash technology. Chromebooks tend to use the latter in small amounts.
In contrast to RAM, data in storage does not necessarily need to be in use. An installed program that is currently not active takes up storage space but not memory. Many modern laptops now use solid-state drives (SSDs) which are faster and more reliable than traditional hard drives, but more expensive when comparing identical capacities.
An SSD uses NAND Flash to store data, which doesn’t have moving parts. It offers a dramatic performance boost over a conventional hard drive – which does have moving parts — and can provide the most dramatic improvement in laptop usage when buying a new system.
Make sure your next purchase has an SSD as the primary drive. You need to grab a big external drive if you need space.
One of the best features of a laptop is its ability to slip into a laptop bag and travel the world with you.You’re best bet is to look at laptops with a smaller screen size and thin, lightweight design, if you are concerned with portability. These types of laptops are often marketed as Ultra books, so look out for that word.
Or, more specifically, go for a device with a screen between 12 and 13.3 inches, and a weight of less that 1.5kg.
6} Battery Life
Instead of focusing on the number of hours the manufacturer quotes, look at the rating of the battery in
Watt-hours (Wh) or milliamp-hours (mAh). The bigger the number, the longer the battery will last.
If portability is important to you (even if that means transporting your laptop from your desk to your bed!), battery life is something worth considering. The reality of a laptop’s battery life is often quite different to what it says on the box. Variables such as screen brightness and the types of programs you run will affect how long the battery lasts.
Most laptops need to connect to something Whether it’s an external display or a thumb drive. Adapters are fine in a pinch, but it’s easier if you get a laptop that already has a bunch of connectivity options.
We’d recommend getting a laptop with a couple of USB 3.0 ports. This is useful for hooking up to a hard drive when you need to back up your files. SD card slots are also great, especially if you’re a photo editor, as it makes transferring photos a breeze.
