How should a college student pick the best laptops for their needs?

When you go to college, one of the main essentials of a good college kit includes a good laptop.

Laptops are fast replacing the conventional method of taking notes in a notebook or a pad.

Therefore, you need something that is perfectly suited to your needs, but at the same time goes easy on your wallet.

That way, you can just as easily get through the day without having to worry about the device failing or running to the service store again and again.

So what are a few factors that you have to consider while buying a new laptop as a college student?

Speed:

For all the people not very familiar with the different kinds of computer specs out there, you need to know two basic things regarding speed. Number one; make sure that you have the latest processor in your laptop. Now this isn’t exactly a rocket science since most of the processors have a version name. The latest ones by Intel range from i3 to i7, and the better ones are on the i5-i7 range. The processor is the core piece of machinery that runs the whole laptop. The second thing you have to keep in mind is the RAM. For completely academic purposes, a laptop of about 4GB RAM should be just about right for you. However, if you are planning to use the laptop for other purposes such as a little gaming on weekends, you might want to bump up the RAM to about 8 GB. Speed is everything and you need to be able to juggle from one program to the other without any hiccups.

Size:

Size includes both the size of the laptop and the display screen. The size of the laptop is directly dependant on how easy it is for you to use. If you are a slow typist, you probably need a bigger laptop with bigger keys so that they are easy to access and make it easier for you to quickly type some notes. However, if you’re on the faster end, you can probably make do with a smaller more compact laptop that gives you more desk space for books and such. Either ways, you do not want to compromise on the size of the laptop. The display screen size is equally important. You do not want to squint to get a good view of the notes you made and keep zooming in and zooming out. You want ergonomic optimization, which basically includes ease of access and easy to read the text on screen.

Budget:

Budget is one of the main things that you need to focus on as a student. As a beginner’s laptop, you do not really have a lot on your mind when it comes to budget and splurging is something that you cannot do with a new laptop. However, you need to understand that you cannot compromise on the qualities and features because this device is going to be by your side for a long time. A cheaper option will usually mean letting go of robustness, and sturdiness.

IPS Monitors – Compare and Buy Best Model

The buyer is bound to compare various monitor models and types before picking the most suitable one.

There are many websites online that provide information on detailed specifications and features of monitors while comparing with other models in the market.

It is always advised to approach a trusted website for accurate information on features and prices.

Here are some features of LCDs that are most sought after:

Viewing angle:

The color of normal LCDs differ when viewed from different angles. These are not true colors because the TN or VA panel types are not enhanced. IPS type monitors are known for their clarity, color accuracy on edges of the monitor, and most importantly consume less power. The disadvantage of wide viewing angle is there is minimum privacy, and one has to go for screen privacy protectors. Professionals belonging to industrial engineering, doctors in surgery rooms require these types of monitors. The IPS is available in larger screens.

Color range:

Color range is a crucial aspect for creative professionals. This feature should be accurate from edge to edge for an image to look perfect in colors. The colors in a standard LCD vary on edges. Hence, the display can produce an adequate color image with a wide range.

Contrast settings:

to keep things simpler with contrast measurement, an essential rule is it is low when black levels are poor. As of now, there are no industry standards to measure contrast and assign a benchmark. The contrast levels are low for flat television screens. Plasma and CRT have better contrast levels when compared to LCD technology. The best contrast is obtained when backlight of each pixel don’t shine through black pixels.

Responsiveness:

The lesser the response time of a LCD, the better picture quality received. The images turn blur if the answer time is high. This happens because the color moves from pixel to pixel very slowly that makes the image and its color to lag behind.

All the above features are best measured and produce best quality image in an IPS panel monitor. 

For this reasons I suggest to choose IPS monitor when you buy a new one!

Where you select the best models?

Bestipsmonitors.com is one of the best sites to compare LCD models and pick the model you like.
