Laptops can be used for lots of different things, from surfing the internet and doing work to gaming and entertainment. Here is a look at a few of the best models on the market today which could make you want to get cash for laptop PCs that are past their prime so you can afford an upgrade.
If you are looking for a hybrid laptop that combines a full keypad with tablet-like features, then HP’s Spectre x360 is a good choice. It is powerful, thanks to its Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM, while also being impressively light and thin, easily matching rival Apple devices in terms of style.
The touchscreen display also has a full HD 1080p resolution, giving the option to manipulate it either using the track pad or fingers. It may be a bit bulkier than a true tablet, but with the full Window 8 experience on board it is a lot more practical.
Students who are in need of a laptop for the new school year or the next term at university might want to consider choosing a Chromebook model powered by Google’s operating system rather than sticking to Windows. The Acer Chromebook 15 is a good example of what can be achieved with this platform, as it offers decent Intel Celeron performance along with a large 15.6-inch display that has a 1080p resolution.
The cloud-powered Chrome OS is great for document editing, web browsing and entertainment purposes, although you will need an internet connection to make the most of it.
Laptops and gaming can go hand in hand as long as you are willing to pay the price for procuring a machine powerful enough to handle the latest titles at the expense of battery life and portability. For those with a hardcore love of interactive entertainment, the Origin EON15-X is a worthy investment, offering a 4GHz Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a powerful GeForce GTX 980M graphics card from Nvidia.
