Yes, it is time, your old laptop is literally on life support, and regardless of the sentiment you hold for that good old pile of parts it is time to let it go and get yourself a newer model. Not a piece of advice you should apply to other areas of your life though. Of course, choosing a new trusted companion is not an easy task, it needs to be able to provide you with the right type of support, endurance and durability. This trifecta is not that easy to find, so here are some great tips that are bound to help you narrow the search and find the right laptop for yourself.
The hardest choice
Now you have set out to find the ideal laptop for yourself, and you have even decided on the brand. Let’s be honest, we all have a favourite and trusted brand that we don’t stray away from. For me, personally, it’s Lenovo, I love their laptops and they have proven to be quite trustworthy. Now comes the hard choice, with what’s available on the market, do you want to a traditional laptop, or would you like something in the lines of Lenovo X1 Yoga TouchPad that can also serve as a tablet. Tempting, isn’t it? The real question is what do you need. Of course, having the two in one option opens up a lot of possibilities and versatile uses, but if you are a stickler for tradition you still might want to consider the good old ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
The screening process
In this case, pun intended. There are certain features that you need to take into consideration when it comes to technology behind your laptop screen. For example an OLED screen is a great choice if you need color accuracy. This is the case if you are showing or creating something where color precision plays a vital role then they are a good choice, no doubt about it. There is another reason, a bit less important but still a valid one. OLED screens make you look good, they are quite coveted and are in a way a status symbol. However, keep in mind that they take a bit more out of your battery, so we are again back at deciding what you personally need your new laptop to do fo you.
Don’t you just love a touch-pen
Jup, Yoga has one docked just for you. And although I personally love mine a bit bigger this one is great for emergencies in case you forget yours. In addition, as you might already know, touch-pens are great for filling out forms. So when deciding on the laptop you might consider this option as well. You can never go wrong with having some additional features such as this one, you don’t know when they might come in handy. Of course, if you prefer your touch pad, and are used to it, you can just skip the pen and go about your old ways of doing things, no shame in that.
Making the final choice
I’m still holding on to the two Lenovo options, but you can use the same principle for the two laptops you are down to. The one thing that wasn’t discussed in this article is the question of price, it is simply because that when it come to the technology that is essential for my work I tend not to dwell on the price rather on the features that can help me finish my tasks ina faster and more accurate way. So when you are making the final decision, go over the essential features one more time, so, from the weight to battery life, processors, storage, and memory. And if all of these are similar in your two choices, then simply go for the beauty aspect and the wow effect it might cause. And yes, you are now allowed to be that shallow since you are the one who will be staring at it day in and day out.
Hope you have made up your mind by now, if not you can always adhere my advice and opt for Lenovo X1 Yoga TouchPad, I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do.
