It is important to know today that I will be using the following terms interchangeably: system, computer and laptop. Just like the cloths we wear; you can get a computer configuration for just any thing. You will agree with me that there are different reasons why people decide on the computer configurations to buy. Some for graphics; video editing, photo editing, wed design, web development, software development, blogging, game development, animation, cartoon designer, data analysis and even type setting. What ever might be your need there is always a system configuration for you.
There are so many things to consider in other to chose the right system configuration depending on your need for system. e.g VGA, RAM, Hard Drive Capacity, Processor Speed, System Brand, LCD type and size.
So, how do you pick the right system configuration? On this note; I have outline some tips that might of help. There are basically two types of tasks you can do with your system: Heavy Task and Light Task!!!
By heavy tasks; I mean your job requires more colors than usual and took more time. e.g Photo editing, Video editing, Animation, Game developing, Graphics designing, Cartoon drawing, web designing, web developing, software developing and mobile app developing. If your job falls in any of the above categories then you should consider any system configuration from Core2Du0 and above.
This configuration should be the lowest you should go for if you intend doing any of the above:
- 160 Gig of Hard Drive
- 2 Gig of RAM
- 2.5 G of Processor Speed
- 15 Inches LCD Screen size at least
A mini Laptop is never a good deal for any of the above jobs or tasks.
Maybe I need to tell you the common trends in the computer world.
It all started a very long time with Pentium 1, Pentium 2, Pentium 3, Pentium 4, Pentium M, Dual Core, Core2Duo, Corei3, Corei5, Corei7 and now Core19
And anything from Pentium M to Dual Core will be good for light jobs. By light jobs I mean type setting – typing and editing secretary work.
This configuration should be the least for a light job laptop
- 60 Gig of Hard Drive
- 1 Gig of RAM
- 1.5 G Processor Speed
- 15 Inches LCD Screen size
Please do not get anything bellow the above configurations. Anything lesser is just a waste of investment in this present age. Irrespective of what anybody may say; make sure you stick to what is right. You know this people want to sell their market. So, if care is not taken you might be sold into buying Pentium 3 or 4.
I hope this helps someone.
