Looking for a Laptop

Question: We are looking for a laptop. What should we get?

Response: When shopping for a laptop, one should decide if what is in the laptop is more important or if keeping inside a budget amount is a greater priority. Most brands you find in a store have done well. Different techs have different preferences, so you will get different responses to this question for every person you talk to about it.

In 2019, for most ‘consumers’ at home or in a small business, if you want a Windows laptop, you will want to make sure it has at least an Intel Core i5 processor, 8Gb of memory (RAM), and a 500Gb hard drive. If you you can fit it in your budget, get 16Gb of RAM and a 1Tb SSD (1 terra byte solid state drive).
