You want to use it while travelling:

If you are a frequent traveller there is plenty more to explore. We consider power and portability. But we need to look beyond that. If we look go for a small laptop the keyboards can be difficult to operate. We will suggest you to go with notepads.  They are much faster and lighter. If you need more space, you can buy an external drive.

You want to use it for watching movies:

Some people use laptops for their digital entertainment. It is used as replacement for everything like TV, stereo, media player etc. In this case you need to consider a widescreen laptop with a high resolution. Picture quality should be bright and vivid. Also look for image distortion, inverted colours. Also check the quality of speakers. If you are into collecting movies and music album don’t settle for a smaller storage.

You want to use it for playing games:

You can play games on every laptop but the question is how well? If gaming is the criterion; you should look for components like graphic chip, processor, screen, battery strength and cooling system. Resolution of screen is one more detail you should look for. Go for a powerful processor. It will sort out issues like graphics, cooling and power.
