The days of the dull gray or black laptops are numbered, now we are able to match our laptop to our outfits or choose our favourite colors with the addition of colorful laptops from many of the large computer companies. Pink laptops in particular are gaining popularity among women (and even a few men). It's no surprise with the invent of those funky apple iPods and even more recently the release of their new color range, who wouldn't want a laptop to match their iPod or even to show off your favourite color at your local cafe rather than the run-of-the-mill black or gray one, a shiny new pink laptop is the way to go.
Many of the large computer companies - Dell, Samsung, Asus, Sony to name a few - now offer laptops in various shades of pink. Dell has also added several color options (pink being one of them) to their sleek, high-performance laptops. The addition of color was a good idea; they have proven incredibly popular and everyone from customers to reviewers raves about them.
When you are looking to buy a new laptop, there are several things you need to consider.
Carrying a laptop around all day, can get hard on the back. So how mobile do you want to be? How much weight are you prepared to carry? An extremely lightweight laptop really limits your accessory options, but can be a godsend in other ways.
Similar to weight, size is mainly an issue of comfort and mobility. The bigger the laptop, the more space you need to set up, the bigger a bag you'll have to carry and juggle on the train, the more accessories and additional hardware you can fit. And, the bigger screen.
Screen size is probably the biggest determiner of laptop size. If, for reasons of vision problems, gaming addictions, or any other reason you need a large screen, well there isn't much anyone can do about it. If on the other hand, you are comfortable with a small screen (and accompanying small graphics, fewer words per screen, and webpage scroll bars) then your options open up a great deal.
DVD-ROM, flash drive, extra disk drives, touch sensitive screen, and all the other fun extras that you can get may be what you want or need in a laptop. The trade off here is both weight, and price. These extras all weigh something, and can cost quite a bit. Compare your budget with your wish list and only include what is needed.
Memory, RAM and Other Stuff
What do you plan to do with your laptop? What programs you're going to be running determine how much memory you'll need. They also have a great deal to do with what type of video and sound card you want to look into. If you don't plan on doing anything more then word processing and making spreadsheets, you can keep extras to a minimum. On the other hand, if you love to game, you've going to want to max out your memory, and everything else.
Usually the greatest trade off is price. A laptop can run up to several thousand dollars. The more extras you get, the higher the price gets. I strongly suggest you set your budget before you start shopping. That way you know your limits before you start looking at options.
If you're ready to start checking out laptops, there are quite a few things you need to consider. Take this information as a starting point to get you going, and start exploring your options.
