What Laptop should I buy?

Today's laptops have a wider range of functionality than ever before, with models ranging from simple web-surfing systems to full on gaming systems. To get the laptop that's right for you, you should know what you intend to use it for, and how long you think you'll have before you'll need to upgrade again. It might be worth it to spend a bit more money on higher grade laptop to future-proof your purchase.

So, if you're looking for a mobile workstation, you won't need a ton of graphics power, but you'll still a CPU that moves at a decent clip. Get a laptop with at least a Intel Core 2 Duo processor or an AMD A-Series Processor. If you're looking into something a little more streamlined and simple, you might want to check out a Chromebook, which uses Google's Chrome OS and supports many custom applications, including word processors, and slide show editors. Then there's Windows 8, which is optimized for touchscreen but still more than functional for things that are on the serious side. Windows 8 laptops will be most easily upgraded to Windows 10, so if you like to have the latest OS, that's likely the way to go.

For gaming or other high performance functions, make sure your notebook system comes with a discrete GPU from Nvidia or AMD, not integrated into the processor, and with at least 1GB of dedicated RAM. Otherwise your system will most likely chug if you try to play anything newer than World of Warcraft (which might be taxing also).
