We are all lucky to live in a very technologically-advanced world these days. Everything can be done online, we can do things with a flicker of the remote. For women, we can shop online, multitask, and even have the luck to enjoy gadgets that are fashionable and hip!
Who says you can’t merge technology and functionality with fashion?
Now you can!
We used to think of laptops as boxy and heavy, now with the advent of netbooks, most of what you see career women tote are fashionable netbooks in very feminine colors, with matching mouse pads to boot. The purchase of a laptop is entirely dependent on the user’s preference. Style would always be included in a woman’s choice.
Career women always on the go and use it mainly for communication (e-mail, Skype and messengers) with officemates and clients might just need a very light laptop with internet functionality. Artists, graphic designers and those involved with photography might need one with more hard disk (HD) space, memory (RAM), and a nice video card. Students need one with enough space for MS Professional/Basic.
The minimum specifications of your laptop should include:
- Wireless and Bluetooth connectivity
- 2 to 4 USB 2.0 ports
- 2 hours battery life
- 512MB memory
- 60GB hard drive capacity
- Full one year warranty
Consider what you are going to use it for and then go from there. Also consider your budget. Don’t pay too much for a laptop with features you will never actually use. And of course, unless you’re a millionaire, your budget probably would be limited. Shop around. Visit as many computer shops as you can. You must learn to compare prices or you would later feel that you have been ripped off with your purchase.Learn to read and trust reviews. But don’t read just one review. You’ll never know because it might be a sponsored review or that the reviewer was actually biased. Read at least three reviews for a specific laptop model that you want. And consider only the reviews from reputable and trusted websites and publications.
Computers are becoming an indispensable part of our day to day life. Whether you are a professional or whether you work from home or your office, each and every one of us is in the need of a computer all the time. Laptops have also become very important because they are giving us the facility to move around and at the same time be able to be connected.
Toshiba laptops have always had a good reputation for being the sturdiest laptops in the market, with customer feedback saying their Toshiba laptops last from six years and up. Toshiba laptops can be up to 50% more expensive than the cheapest models on the market with the same processor, RAM and so on, simply due to the cost of the better build quality and having to pay Japanese workers’ salaries. But if you think about the price you will pay with the years of service it will give to you, consider yourself more than paid.
