Shopping for Laptops in Nigeria

Laptops, like smartphones, have their own unique categories - such as a beginners' laptop, gaming laptop, compact laptop, etc. And then there are laptops that try to offer maximum value for the money spent. These aren't as powerful as gaming laptops, nor are they meant for first-time laptop users who want nothing but basic functionality. If you're shopping for laptops, consider what your requirements are and also the amount of money you're willing to spend.

Operating System

Modern laptops either run on Windows or Mac OS. There are other operating systems as well such as Chrome OS and Linux, but those aren't as mainstream as the two aforementioned. With Windows, you've got many laptop options. There are Windows laptops for the budget-minded and also for those who can splurge quite a lot. Mac OS can be seen only on laptops made by Apple and the options are therefore not more than a couple. Windows laptops are not just made by Microsoft but also Dell, HP, Acer, Lenovo, and other popular laptop makers.

Screen Size

A laptop screen could be as small as 10 inches or as big as 18 or even 20 inches, with different screen dimensions falling in between. However, the two most popular sizes are 13 and 15 inches. 15 inches are generally used by those who use their laptop as a desktop replacement. 13 inches are meant for people who'd like to supplement their primary computer with a machine that's light and small, but still powerful enough to carry out heavy, productive tasks such as video editing.

Keyboard and Touchpad

All laptops have a keyboard and touchpad, but not all work the same. As far as the keyboard goes, there are some that offer more tactile feedback than others. Tactile feedback refers to the vertical travel a key takes when it's pressed - it's ideal for people who type a lot, such as writers and coders. Touchpad functionality is the best only on a MacBook and high-end laptops. If you're more into video editing and graphic designing, the quality of the touchpad should be the primary reason for buying a laptop.

Hardware Specifications

We are here talking about CPU, RAM, hard drive capacity, display, graphics chip, etc. Intel has different CPU configurations such as i3, i5, and i7, and there are also Atom and Pentium processors, to name a few. CPUs are also made by AMD, by the way. As far as RAM goes, a laptop now has nothing less than 2 GB of RAM, with the maximum going up to 32 GB or more. For heavy users 8 GB should be doable and 16 GB ideal. For beginners, 4 GB would be perfect. But if you have the money, you can future-proof your laptop and pay for the highest memory.

If you're into gaming, the graphics card of your laptop should be of the highest strength. If you want to use your laptop as a media consumption device, it only makes sense to invest in a laptop that has the maximum pixels in its display. Full HD is where you'd like to start here.

There are quite a few other things as well to consider when shopping for laptops, but the aforementioned points cover the basic and most important attributes.
