Armed with extensive supply lists, families are preparing to embark on the annual pilgrimage to the mall. It may be hard to believe, but folks are starting to get organized for September classes. With the end of summer quickly approaching, our phone lines are abuzz with questions about the best technology for the Back to School crowd. When it comes to personal computing devices, it can be quite daunting to decide on your best option. Hopefully, these steps will be of help:
Pick a Team
Windows, Mac or Chrome OS
Select a Size
How portable do you need or want your laptop to be?
Go for a Test Ride
Spend some time on the keyboard. Does it have the feel you want?
Consider the Specs
Probably the most confusing and intimidating step of all! Compare components such as the RAM, hard drive, graphics card, etc. and determine if the laptop will meet your needs.
Battery – compare the battery life of the models you are considering
Budget – set a budget and stick to it
