How to choose a laptop (if you are in a hurry)

If you’re in a hurry, these are the most important things to consider when choosing a new laptop. For a lot more detail, see the sections below.

  • 12.5 to 14-inch screens offer the best balance between usability and portability. Larger screens are fine if you don’t travel much and smaller models are great for kids.
  • 1920 x 1080 screen
  • If you’re spending over $600, shoot for these minimum specs:
  • Core i5 CPU
  • SSD Storage instead of a hard drive.
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 8+ hours of battery life is ideal if you plan to take your laptop anywhere at all.
  • Chromebooks are good for kids. Windows laptops and MacBooks both offer plenty of functionality; which platform you prefer is a matter of personal taste
