Ever found yourself lost in a world of the latest technology? There are thousands of mini minds, what we call laptops out there on the market. There is a laptop out there suited to your lifestyle whether it is for professional or personal use.

Ashley from Hughes Electrical explained to us how to find the most compatible laptop suited to your needs and within your price range. 

It doesn’t always have to be the latest make and model that you are instantly drawn to, whether it’s touch screen, the size or a rotational screen. You have to think of a laptop, as if it were a person. 

With many options continuing to become available in 2019 and for many years to come, such as iPhones, iPads and Play Station consoles, laptops are still a fundamental base to complete your daily tasks. 

The first step to finding the right one for you is by starting to look at the processor; the higher the processor, the quicker the functioning will be and this will afford those who love to multi task, an easier life. We appreciate that budgets aren’t always flexible, however in the long term, sometimes it is better to pay that little bit more for extra quality.

The next step is to concentrate on the size of the RAM (Random Access Memory) and hard drive. If you expect to do the simplest tasks, a lower RAM will be adequate. The higher the RAM, the higher quality workload it will produce. This step comes alongside looking into the hard drive compatibility and again this goes back to the higher it is, the more ability the machine will have.

Following these steps, it then gets narrowed down to your personal preference regarding the brand and appearance. For those that are constantly on the go, a smaller screen will be ideal, due to it being compact and you can take it everywhere you go.

For those that are desk based, whether it be career or studies, a bigger screen is likely to be more beneficial. Lastly, you need to think about your personal taste when it comes to keyboard layout and what feels comfortable to you as the user. Before you know it, you have whittled it down from what was a daunting thought of picking out of thousands of options to your decision becoming easier. 

As some of you may be aware, Hughes have a rental option available on appliances, technology and gadgets. This could mean you can have the latest version for as little as £9 a month; however, this year especially for Student Life readers, Hughes will offer the first 3 months’ rent, HALF PRICE. 

If this doesn’t tickle your fancy. I don’t know what will.
