5 reasons to buy a new laptop

Does your old laptop start slowly, is it big and heavy, and does it need to be charged after 3 hours? It's time to replace it. A brand-new laptop has many benefits. On this page, you can find 5 reasons to buy a new laptop.

In short

  1. New laptops are more compact and lighter
  2. New laptops are faster and more silent
  3. New laptops have a longer battery life
  4. New laptops are more user-friendly
  5. Choose a 2-in-1 laptop: the best of 2 worlds

1. New laptops are more compact and lighter

Laptops are a lot thinner and lighter now than they were 5 years ago. In addition, the edges around the screen have become considerably thinner over the years. As a result, laptops have relatively more screen space than before.

2. New laptops are faster and more silent

A Solid State Drive, or SSD, is the standard type of storage for laptops nowadays. An SSD not only has no moving parts, so new laptops make less noise, an SSD is much faster than a traditional hard drive. If you turn on a laptop with an SSD, it will start in about 15 seconds. If your old laptop has an HDD and your new one has an SSD, the difference will be like day and night.

3. New laptops have a longer battery life

Laptops don't just develop in terms of storage and screen size, because the technology in the battery improves as well. A new laptop can easily last an entire working day without having to recharge. There aren't always sockets around, and you won't have to worry about that anymore if you have a new laptop. The charger can stay home in the future.

4. New laptops are more user-friendly

You no longer have to log in with a password in 2018. Many laptops now have a fingerprint scanner. That way, you can log in quickly, easily, and safely, because only your fingerprint can unlock the laptop. A laptop with RealSense or an infrared camera will let you log in based on facial recognition. Don't forget Windows Ink, which you can use to turn your laptop into a digital notebook with a touchpen.

5. Choose a 2-in-1 laptop: the best of both worlds

Nowadays, you don't have to operate a laptop with just your keyboard and touchpad. 2-in-1 laptops have a touchscreen, so you can swipe through websites or applications just like do on your smartphone or tablet. The keyboard can be folded or detached, so the 2-in-1 turns into a big tablet. Very useful if you like to work with your laptop in your lap and enjoy operating a touchscreen, whether it's at home or on the go.
