Laptop types

When deciding to purchase a laptop, consider what type of laptop you need and whether you want a brand new one or a refurbished one.

  • Apple laptops Apple laptops, known as MacBooks, operate the same way the PC laptops work. Some of the amenities may be slightly different, but the major difference is the operating system. PC laptops typically run on Windows operating systems while MacBooks use Apple's proprietary operating systems. The screen size, hard drive space, processor speed and other selling points are virtually similar to PC laptops it just comes down to the look and functionality of the operating system you prefer.
  • Two-in-one laptops These devices can either work as a laptop on one mode or as a tablet when the screen is detached from the keyboard or bent back 360 degrees in the other mode. If you want your device to be a laptop first and tablet second, choose the kind that turns 360 degrees; if a tablet is your primary focus, then choose a detachable touchscreen device.
  • Touchscreen laptops You don t have to have your laptop become a tablet to use touchscreen capability; there are laptops that feature built-in touchscreens. These work with a keyboard as well, so you have either option at your disposal.
  • Ultrabooks These are lightweight laptops on the entry-level end of laptop computing. They usually have limited battery life and storage space but otherwise operate like other laptops. They sometimes lack extra features like disc drives.
  • gaming laptops Gaming laptops are powerful laptops that have a great deal of random-access memory, larger storage drives, faster processors and more powerful graphics cards, making them suitable for high-end computing needs, such as the processing speeds you need when you're playing video games.
