Key Aspects When Buying A New Laptop

While budget and brand name are 2 essential things to consider when buying a laptop, many other factors that play a role in the overall quality and performance of the laptop that you have purchased.

That being said, here are some of the important aspects to check if you want to get a cheap laptop for DJing, editing, or any other use both professionally and entertainment.

  1. Portability

If you badly need a portable laptop, it is highly recommended for you to buy laptops with smaller screen size. Though the sizes vary from 11 to 17 inches, the size that you should pick depends on how portable your laptop needs to be.


  1. Screen

This talks about the screen as a whole. Since the screen size has already been discussed, this is more about the resolution and if it’s a touch screen laptop. High-resolution laptop screens provide smoother and better multitasking performance, and touch screen laptops are not necessary if you don’t need it.


  1. Processor Speed

This is one of the most important parts of a laptop. If you want a high performing laptop for any kind of editing or heavy works like gaming, it’s suggestible to have a high processor speed.

  1. Storage Size

HDD and SDD are the two different types of memory that we have today. While it obviously differs on the price, SDD is faster in file transfer and transferring rather than the HDD. Moreover, SDDs are more reliable than HDDs.

Indeed, it’s true that there are still quite many unmentioned things like connectivity and RAM. However, these 4 aspects are still very critical when finding a laptop. So, if you want to make sure that you find the laptop that is right for you, you can review any of these specifications and compare it to other benchmarks set by other people.
