Laptops can be used for various purposes:

  • Business purpose: Number of productive tasks such as documentation, presentations, reports, e-mailing, and web marketing can be easily done using a laptop. It is therefore important to select a laptop with a longer battery life, and good storage.
  • Gaming purpose: GPU (graphics processing unit) is the major aspect to consider while selecting a best laptop under 60k for gaming purpose. NVIDIA and AMD, are the most sought after graphics coprocessor. Display size, SSD, and the memory are some other factors to consider.
  • Personal purpose: The personal use may vary such as school assignments, social media, freelance jobs, and entertainment. Where the students and the freelancers will need the MS office as the priority, the screen features will be more important for those who want to watch movies and surf internet.

Know your Laptop’s Hardware and Software 

The basic understanding of the laptop’s hardware and software can be helpful in deciding which laptop you require.

Operating System (OS)

The operating system acts as an interface between the user and the system. Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, Linux, DOS and Mac OS are some of the commonly featured operating systems available.

Windows is the most user-friendly OS that uses graphical user interface (GUI) to create commands and the user need not to learn the complex commands. MS-DOS, on the other hand, is comparatively difficult to operate, as the user is required to type instructions to carry out operations.

Another user-friendly OS is Mac OS that is only featured in the laptops of ‘Apple’.

Processor (CPU)

The processor is the brain of your laptop, and hence should be of prime consideration while purchasing a laptop.

Intel Atom, Pentium and Celeron are some processors that are sufficient for internet browsing and basic functioning, whereas Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 are required for complex operations such as business and research work. 

Random Access Memory (RAM)

It is a memory where OS and other applications of the system store information for quick access during any operation. The RAM size depends upon if the operating system is 32 bit or 64 bit. The size of RAM varies from 4 GB in 32-bit Windows 7 edition to 512 GB in Windows 8.1 Enterprise.

The RAM size is a basic parameter to measure the speed of your system.

Processor Speed

The speed of processor varies from 1.5 GHz to 2.5 GHz and more. How fast your system will respond depends on the speed of the processor. Currently available processors are i3, i5, i7 or dual, quad or hexacore.

Hard disk size

Hard disk is the data storage of the system where most of the files, OS, and software are all stored. It is, therefore, an important factor while selecting a laptop depending upon how much data you have. The size of your hard disk may vary from 150 GB to 1 TB, though most laptops, these days, are pre-loaded with 1 TB HDD.

Storage Type

The laptops are pre-loaded with mechanical hard drives, while solid state drive (SSD), and hybrid drives can be externally installed depending upon the requirement. SSD is the fastest drive as it consumes less power and has fewer chances of accidental data loss.

Hybrid hard drives combine both mechanical and solid state drive in a single 2.5-inch device, but it cannot fetch every stored file and run installed programmes at higher speed.

Battery Life

The number of hours a laptop can sustain its battery is a decisive factor, especially for those who use laptop while travelling. A high performing battery can lasts up to 10 hours.

Display Size and Portability

If you are a kind of person who is travelling for most of the hours in a day, portability must be the prime factor.
