Choosing a Notebook:

Choosing a portable computer, usually called a laptop or notebook, is in many ways similar to choosing a standard desktop computer. Think about your computer needs and balance those with cost. Just remember that bigger screens and extra features usually mean more weight, and the whole point of buying this kind of computer over a desktop model is its portability.

Here's a quick rundown of the advantages and disadvantages between desktop and notebook computers:

Desktop computers are…

  • Generally less expensive than notebooks.
  • Usually have bigger keyboards and larger screens.
  • Are difficult to transport.
  • Often bulky and can take up a lot of desk space.

    Notebook computers are…

  • Lightweight and easy to take anywhere.
  • Small and take up very little space.
  • Usually more expensive than desktop models with similar features.
  • More difficult to upgrade and repair.
  • More susceptible to dropping and/or breaking.

    If you decide that a notebook computer is what you want, the next step is to choose the correct machine to fit your needs. Use the scenarios below to determine the notebook that's right for you, based on how you want to use it.

    FAQs

    Do I need a Notebook or Desktop/All-In-One, and what is an Ultrabook?

  • Today there are many great choices for your type of computer, so you can chose the best option to fit your lifestyle. Notebooks are portable, so they are great to take with you on vacation or even to the coffee shop. Desktops are your traditional computers that you setup in your home office, and they typically have the largest hard drives and more power. All-In-One computers are a newer trend, where the desktop computer is built right into the monitor, so you can save desk space and have a more elegant look. Some All-In-One computers even have a touch screen for an easier computing experience. Notebooks come in many shapes and sizes, with screen sizes starting as small as 10” (also referred to as Netbooks) running as big as 17” widescreen sizes. The most common size for notebooks is 15”, and 17” is great if you want it for more of a desktop replacement. 13 & 14” notebooks are great for travel and mobility as they are smaller and lighter. Ultrabooks are a new type of very thin notebook typically in the 11-14” range, so they are the most elegant and portable you can find but they often times do not have a CD/DVD built in to make them thinner. Some notebooks and ultrabooks now have touch screens as well, but they tend to be the most expensive options available.

    What kind of processor do I need?

  • The typical rule for processor speed is the faster the better, but it depends on how you will use your computer. If you will be an average or occasional user, such as surfing the internet, or doing office type documents, slower processors are more than adequate (such as dual core processors). If you are a power user doing graphics, video streaming, or even gaming then you will want to look at higher end processors such as Intel’s i-series (i3, i5, i7) or AMD A6/A8/A10 dual and quad core processors. The speed or megahertz is typically in the 1.6 GHz range to over 3.0Ghz, but that can be misleading as you may have a quad core processor running at say 2.1Ghz that can perform better then a 2.5Ghz Dual Core. Speaking of cores, that is referring to the amount of core processing units in the computer chip. Old computers like original Pentium’s were single cores, so today’s dual core or quad core basically have 2X or 4X the processing power built in to maximize speed and help you multitask better.

    What is the hard drive, and how big should it be?

  • The hard drive is your big storage device in your computer, to think of it as sort of a file cabinet. If you have a lot of stuff, say music and pictures, then the bigger the better. If you have very large graphic or video files you need to save, then go even bigger. Today smaller hard drives are in the 250-320GB range, midsize is 500-640GB, and the largest are 750GB-1000GB (1TB) and up. The most common size today is 500GB, and that is more than ample storage for most people. Let’s say you have a 500GB hard drive and you use 200GB of it for Windows and other software programs, you still have 300GB left that could store over 50,000 photos, music or other files!

    What is the Memory or RAM and why is it important?

  • The RAM is the short term memory (Random Access Memory), which your computer uses to keep current programs open and basically run your computer. Basically the higher the better, so you see most computers today having 4GB of memory, with some having 6GB or 8GB. Generally computer manufactures have the optimum amount of memory for a given computer so you typically have enough based design of the computer. Most computers also let you upgrade or add in more memory which can improve your performance especially if you are a heavy user.

    Should I get a Windows PC/Notebook or a Apple Mac computer?

  • Both are solid options, and it really boils down to personal preference and your budget. Windows based PC’s are the most common option, so you tend to get a wider selection of brands and prices, and get more software options. Apple Macintosh based computers tend to have very elegant designs, are more expensive and tend to be great for graphic intensive users.
