Things to consider while buying a laptop. Which laptop to buy? which laptop is best for me ? best laptop under blah blah budget?

 

 

Looking for one good laptop in the ocean full of choices and options is such an overwhelming and dilemmatic thing. The question and doubts of people have sparked a lot of discussions and queries these days about which laptop to buy for video editing, which laptop is best for programming, which laptop to buy with a small budget, and so on.

So, which laptop should you buy for your specific task?

To begin with, there is no laptop designed specifically for specific industry or work categories, such as only for gaming, only for coding, or video editing. So all you can do is, you should be aware of the hardware and software requirements for the work you do and then choose the best laptop that meets your needs. For example, if I want a laptop for programming and college work:

I will consider and require the following:

  • A large display Obviously, writing code on a small screen is extremely difficult.
  • 8 GB RAM- this is now considered a minimum amount of RAM. If you are not engaged in gaming or graphics, 16GB is completely useless.
  • A good battery backup, 
  • SSD as a storage device has become a must-have in a laptop. To improve loading and boot times. It also contributes to the overall performance of the device.

As an example, these are the primary features I will look for in a laptop for programming. This is how you should think when purchasing a laptop.

 


Things to consider while purchasing a good laptop:

  • Display: A big-sized FHD good display. 15-16 inches is recommended, neither too big nor too small. 60 fps is okay. But if you are really into gaming or the graphics field then a 144 Hz display is recommended
  • CPU – 
    • AMD processors are rated on a scale of 5 to 10. AMD processors are less expensive than Intel processors and will provide comparable performance. The subcategories here primarily include Ryzen series such as the 4000 and 5000 series, as well as AMD A, FX, and E series. The Ryzen CPU chips are the Intel equivalents of the i5 and i7 processors, and they deliver powerful performance. The AMD A and FX series, on the other hand, are found in low-cost laptops for basic functionality.
    • Intel processors typically have a rating of 4-10 and provide good performance. Power consumption and battery life are undoubtedly issues in some Intel laptops. The main sub-categories are Xeon, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9. The better the processor, the higher you go. Core i5 processors provide adequate performance, while Core i7 or i9 processors are more powerful. Intel’s entry-level processors are all very basic.
  • GPU – This is the most important factor to consider. If you are not in a graphics-related field where heavy tasks are performed, you do not require it. It only adds 30,000 to 40,000 to the cost of your laptop and is completely useless in your hardware. Integrated GPUs from Intel or Ryzen can handle small graphics tasks or let medium too it can as well. And if you are mainly in graphics works, then the 1650 Ti GPU recommended by Adobe is the way to go. Or more, depending on your requirements.
    • I have seen lots of people just saying “jati mahango teti ramro” nope that is not the case. Case is “jati mahango teti use na huni hardware”. The more price the better product is a myth
  • RAM: These days, 8 GB DDR 4  RAM is both a must and a bare minimum. If you play games and use memory-intensive software, go for 16 GB.
  • SSD – this is also the most important. This improves the overall performance of your system, including loading, booting, and so on. SDDs are classified into two types: SATA and NVMe. Choose NVMe, it is more costly but faster and better than any existing, as SATA’s speed is equivalent to that of a hard drive.
  • Battery: The laptop is primarily known for portability, and if you are porting your laptop to college or anywhere else. When you don’t have a good battery, you’re going to have a small fear of running out of power while working. So having a good batter is also a plus point. Btw you cannot expect good backup from gaming and good laptops because let how good your battery is, that good performing hardware is going to consume lots of power mainly your dedicated GPU.
  • Miscellaneous-If you have a large enough budget, having a fingerprint lock system and a screen touch display will increase your productivity at work. It’s a plus point
  • And A RGB laptop keyboard ??? kidding, it’s your preference 
  • After deciding on a laptop, post it somewhere in a group and get feedback from other users about their experience and quality. Then just go for it.

Some User’s Best recommended laptops

  • Ram 8GB
  • A highspeed HDD or 256 gb SSD only
  • Normal display 30fps/ 60 fps
  • That’s it 

 

 

btw for coding and programming, you really don’t need expensive and high-end laptops, low of the low-end laptop just enough if you have dedication and passion for something. even people are building and learning things on mobile phone

  1. btw for coding and programming, you really don’t need expensive and high-end laptops
    – True

    I use a 4th gen i7 with 8gb (upgraded recently only- had only 4 previously) which I bought at around 35k (2nd hand, in fairly good condition)

    True that I don’t do graphics intensive tasks (no video editing or gaming), but I can comfortably have 3-5 docker instances running, 2 servers, Figma and couple dozen chrome tabs for development without much performance drops.

    Not saying there are no disadvantages- at times I suffer, I won’t get native Windows 11 support. Emulators can slow down considerably and notoriously Flutter and Android studio can take forever to build.

    But anyone getting started- you don’t need 1lakh laptop. You can start with <50k if you're smart enough and invest wisely.
    Once you start making money – you can always treat yourself to your dream machine!
