Black Friday Laptop Deals Buying Guide
Black Friday Laptops Deals Buying Guide 2017
When shopping for a Black Friday Laptop Deal, one of the first things people consider is brand. PCs offer a much bigger range of brands, models and prices. With Macs you’ll often pay more, but you’ll get an interface that many people find easier to use than Windows. Apple has proven to be the most reliable brand computer on the market for years. In a survey, only eight percent of Macs needed repair or had a serious problem, PCs range from 12 to 16 percent. But many people choose based on what other gadgets they have and what brand they previously owned.
The Black Friday Laptop screen size you choose will help determine how much your laptop weighs and costs. If you plan to take it with you often, go for a smaller size, such as a 13-inch. These weigh roughly two to four pounds. A bigger, screen 14 to 16 inches, is good for a home office. These models are still light enough (3 to 6 pounds) to take on the road.
Think about what you’re going to use the laptop for. For simple things like web surfing, email and word processing, go for a model with Intel Celeron or Pentium. Some come with 2 gigs of memory, which can handle those basic tasks. But 4 gigs will work a lot faster. If you plan to watch a lot of streaming video, a laptop with v specs will work well, as long as your internet connection is fast enough to support video. Another option for simple tasks is a Chromebook which runs on a simplified operating system and relies on the cloud to store your data and run programs. If you edit a lot of photos, look for at least four gigs of memory for storage. Most laptops only have room for one drive, so you’ll have to choose which suits your needs better. If you are a gamer or you are editing video and need storage for all your media, go for at least eight gigs of memory and at least one terabyte of storage.
2 IN 1
One of the newer trends in 2017 Black Friday laptops is the 2 in 1, it allows you to also use your laptop as a tablet.
Another trend is ultra-lightweight: they performed well in our surveys and weigh around two pounds. But you will only get a screen about 12 or 13 inches large.
If you are taking your laptop with you, you will want to consider battery life. We found there is a huge range for laptops, 3 to 19 hours: you want one that will last at least eight.
