Budget. In addition to the destination, before purchasing, you should determine the amount that the user is willing to pay for a new device. Here it should be said that the price will also depend on the purpose, for example, for home use, a budget model may well be suitable, but in order for the laptop to “overcome” complex games, budget models should not be considered. In any case, you need to get acquainted with the prices of devices that will meet the purpose of use, and allocate the possible amount.
After the budget is measured, and the purpose is thought out, it is worth going to get acquainted with the important parameters of laptops, which should play a crucial role when choosing a device.
Monitor. Monitor parameters will depend on several characteristics, for example:
Matrix. The quality of this parameter determines whether the screen will not reflect, the quality of viewing angles, saturation, and other screen properties. Today in laptops you can find TN, VA and luxury type, which differ from each other in the price and quality of image transmission. Here you should select the type of VA that has optimal quality and response rates and is suitable for any purpose of use.
Cover. Modern screens are presented in matte and glossy versions. The difference between them is in reliability and color rendering. In the first case, the matte coating definitely wins, and in the second, the glossy one. The choice should be based on the user’s taste, but matte screens have long been considered optimal, since they do not “collect” scratches and fingerprints.

If you choose low quality, pixels may be noticeable and spoil the experience of using a laptop, especially during games or video expanse.

Here it is important to understand that the larger the diagonal of the device, the higher the screen resolution should be.
Diagonal. The choice of the appropriate diagonal depends directly on the purpose of the laptop. For games and at home, the best option will be large laptops with a diagonal of 17D. You can choose a small device with a diagonal of up to 14 d. In General, the larger the diagonal, the larger the device itself, respectively, the weight of the laptop will be significant.
Processor. Modern laptops are equipped with two types of chips. These are INTEL and AMD.The operation of the device itself will depend on the class of the selected processor. The higher it is, the faster and more productive the laptop will be. The optimal and affordable price will be the middle class of each of the chips.
Memory. One of the most important parameters of the laptop system is the amount of its memory. It allows you to run the system itself, as well as store user files. The optimal amount of memory for a home and work laptop is 6-32 GB. For a gaming laptop, the figure may be higher due to the specifics of use and the high weight of games.
Battery. The advantage of a laptop is that you can use it without connecting to the power supply. On average, a laptop can work for 6 hours offline, i.e. without charging. A 3500 mAh battery will be sufficient for this purpose. There are more powerful batteries, but the purchase of such a model can be justified for a gaming computer, because the more powerful the device, the more it requires charge, and therefore the battery life is reduced.
