Frequently asked laptop questions

Which brand of laptop is best?

Deciding on the best laptop brand can be a tough decision. After all, there are so many different manufacturers, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. However, there are a few brands that consistently produce high-quality laptops that are ideal for students, professionals, and everyday users.

Apple is one of the most popular laptop brands, and for good reason. Their laptops are well-designed and offer a wide range of features but typically carry a price premium compared to other brands. Dell & HP are also top choices, known for their durable laptops that offer excellent value. If you're looking for something a little different, Lenovo is a great option. Their laptops are packed with powerful specs and offer a unique user experience at a compelling price. Ultimately, the best laptop brand for you depends on your needs, preferences and budget. But if you're looking for quality and value, Apple, Dell, HP and Lenovo are all great choices.

As well as producing quality laptops that will stand the test of time, all of these brands back up their products with comprehensive warranty and customer support services which is an important consideration when choosing which laptop to buy.

What's the best cheap laptop?

Trying to decide which is the best cheap laptop can be a daunting task. With so many options on the market, it's hard to know where to start. However, by taking into account your needs and budget, you can narrow down the field and find the perfect laptop for you. At the time of writing, you can pick up a budget laptop for under £300.

Your choice of laptop should be based on how you plan to use it. Do you just need a laptop for a bit of web surfing at home or perhaps a beefy workstation for advanced video editing? Your type of usage will have a direct impact on how much you need to spend. Generally speaking, the more you spend the better the build quality of the laptop and the more durable it will be. Battery life tends to be on the low side on budget/entry level laptops as well.

Most of the leading laptop brands offer a budget or entry level laptop model. Chromebooks are budget friendly laptops that are great for web browsing, video streaming, social media and email.
If cost is an important factor, you might want to consider buying a refurbished laptop model rather than a brand new machine. There are plenty of professionally refurbished laptop models that are cosmetically as good as new and will be perfectly suitable for a wide range of usage types. A refurbished laptop costs a fraction of the price of a new one and will run most applications comfortably.

It is important to recognise that there is more to think about than just the price. To a certain extent, the old saying, ‘You get what you pay for’ holds true. For example, you can find a powerful laptop with an 15-inch screen, but you might have to compromise on other aspects like, keyboard & display quality and touchpad performance.

Which laptop is best for normal use?

There are many laptops on the market, and it can be hard to decide which one is best for you. If you're looking for a laptop for general use, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Firstly, what is your budget? Laptops range in price from a couple hundred pounds to several thousand, so it's important to know before how much you're willing to spend.
Another aspect to consider is the battery life. Laptops designed for general use tend to have shorter battery life than laptops designed for gaming or video-editing so if you require a laptop to take with you on the go, be sure to check the battery life before committing to a purchase.


Also think about what type of activities you'll be using the laptop for. If you'll mainly be using it for browsing the web and light document editing, then you would not need a powerful processor or a lot of RAM. A laptop with 4 - 8GB of RAM and a small processor should be ideal.

Finally, read reviews from other users before making your decision. This will help you see what others think of the various everyday use laptops on the market and make the best decision for your needs. With these tips in mind, you're sure to find the perfect cheap laptop for your needs.

How long should a good laptop last?

Unfortunately, laptops are not built to last forever. The average lifespan of a laptop is estimated at 3-5 years, but it is possible for them to survive longer with proper care and maintenance. There are several ways to ensure you keep your laptop in good shape and potentially increase the life span such as:

  • Remove the charger from the laptop when it is charged
  • Use laptop cooling pads to help stop your laptop overheating
  • Keep any liquids away from your laptop
  • Use antivirus software
  • Upgrade your laptop’s RAM & SSD where you can
  • Open up your laptop and clean it inside occasionally to protect from dirst and dust build-up

But at what point does purchasing a new laptop outweigh the cost of upgrading and repairs?
If your laptop’s fans begin getting noisy, your applications are taking a long time to load and the start-up and shutdowns are slow, it is more than likely time to purchase a new laptop.
Newer laptops offer faster processors, more storage space and a better battery life than their predecessors. They also often come with features like touchscreens and backlit keyboards that can make computing more enjoyable. Of course, the cost of a new laptop can be substantial, so it's important to weigh the pros and cons and take into account the tasks you will be doing before deciding.

What's the difference between a laptop and a Chromebook?

Chromebooks are a special type of laptop that's popular with home users, students and budget-conscious shoppers. But what exactly is a Chromebook, and how does it differ from a traditional laptop? For starters, Chromebooks run on Google's Chrome operating system, which is designed to be lightweight and easy to use. Chromebooks are also generally more affordable than laptops, and they typically have longer battery life. However, there are some trade-offs to consider. Chromebooks typically have less storage than other types of laptop and they're not as powerful when it comes to gaming or other intensive tasks. So, if you're trying to decide between a Chromebook and a laptop, it really comes down to what you need it for. If you're just looking for something to browse the web and check your email, a Chromebook might be a good option. But if you need something with more storage and power, you'll probably want to stick with a traditional laptop.

Which is the best laptop brand? Lenovo, HP or Dell?

Anyone in the market for a new laptop has probably noticed that there is a plethora of brands to choose from. However, when it comes to finding the best laptop brand, there are three that stand out above many of the rest in terms of reputation and popularity; Lenovo, HP and Dell. All three brands offer a great selection of laptops to suit any need or budget, but they each have their own unique strengths.
Lenovo laptops are known for their sleek design, durability and powerful performance.
HP laptops offer a good balance of price and features.
Dell laptops are associated with stylish designs, a wide range of options and the Dell laptop range includes some of the most reliable laptops on the market.
So, which is the best laptop brand? Ultimately, it depends on your specific needs and preferences. But if you're looking for a well-rounded machine that won't break the bank, you won't go wrong with a laptop from any of these premium brands.

How much RAM should a laptop have?

When it comes to laptops, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of how much RAM you need. RAM, or random-access memory, is a type of computer storage that stores data temporarily. The more RAM a laptop has, the more data it can process at once. The amount of RAM you need will depend on your specific usage patterns and the type of software you use. If you have a lightweight laptop like a Chromebook and you only use your laptop for basic tasks like browsing the web and checking email, then 4GB of RAM could be sufficient. However, if you're running on Windows and use your laptop for more demanding tasks like video editing or gaming, then you will need 8GB or more of RAM. Ultimately, the best way to determine how much RAM you need is to look at the recommended specs for the apps you typically run on the laptop and ensure you have at least that amount of RAM installed. You can also upgrade the RAM in many laptops if you find performance is sluggish.

How much does a decent laptop cost?
You can pick up a decent laptop for as little as £300 but of course laptop prices also go significantly higher, it really comes down to what you need and your definition of 'decent'. There is a wide range of prices depending on the features and quality you are looking for. Some cheaper laptops may feature lightweight specs making them unsuitable for demanding applications. The processor is an important factor to consider. A slower processor will mean that your laptop will take longer to load programs and may not be able to run the latest software titles. In general, you get what you pay for when it comes to laptops. Cheaper models will have fewer features and lower quality components, while more expensive laptops will offer better performance and a higher build quality. Ultimately, it is important to decide what you need from a laptop before deciding how much to spend.
What are the things to consider when buying a laptop?

When buying a laptop, there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind.

Think about what you'll be using it for. If you're just going to be browsing the web and doing some light word processing, you won't need as much power as someone who's going to be editing video or playing demanding games so something with Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3, 8GB of RAM or lower and 256GB SSD should be more than enough. However, if require a laptop for more rigorous activities you want to look at something with i5, i7 or i9 processor with 8GB of RAM or higher and a 512GB SSD which in turn will affect the price of the laptop so you will also need to consider your budget. Laptops range in price from a few hundred pounds to several thousand, so it's important to know how much you're willing to spend. Also consider the laptop's size, weight & battery life. If you're going to be carrying it around with you on a regular basis, you'll want something that's lightweight and easy to transport that won’t leave you in the lurch while travelling.

Another aspect is the operating system of the laptop. It can be difficult determining which operating system is best for your needs, especially if you are not familiar with them. The main three operating systems are: Windows, Chrome OS & MacOS (MacBooks only). Choosing the right one is personal preference, but they all have their advantages. Windows is by far the most popular OS for a variety of reasons such as; easy to use, ideal for both work & study and as nearly every manufacturer prefers Windows (because of its existing userbase) there will be a laptop in every configuration with Windows OS. Chrome OS is known for its good security with automatic updates, fast bootup and the ability to also run Android applications. If it is a MacBook that is catching your eye, then you can expect a simplified user interface, dedicated features for multitasking and lesser malware and other security issues.

Is 8Gb of RAM enough in a laptop?

Now more than ever, most of us are spending more time on our laptops. We use them for work, for school, for entertainment, and for keeping in touch with friends and family. With all that usage, it's important to have a laptop that can keep up with your needs. So, is 8GB of RAM enough? It depends on how you use your laptop.

RAM, or Random Access Memory is essentially the short-term memory of the computer, and it's what allows the processor to quickly access the data it needs. If you mostly use it for surfing the web, checking email, and watching videos, then 8GB is probably more than enough. However, if you do also use your laptop for video editing or gaming, you may want to consider upgrading to 16GB or even 32GB. Having more RAM will allow your laptop to run more programs simultaneously without slowing down. So, if you do a lot of multitasking or resource-intensive activities on your laptop, 8GB may not be enough.

How much does a 15" laptop weigh?
Laptops come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny notebooks to massive gaming rigs. While a 15" laptop may weigh more than a smaller model, it can still be easily portable thanks to modern design features such as slimmed-down bezels and lightweight materials. In fact, many 15" laptops weigh less than five pounds, making them a great option for students and professionals who need a larger screen but don't want to sacrifice portability. Of course, weight is just one factor to consider when choosing a new laptop. But if you're looking for a portable option that won't weigh you down, there are plenty of lightweight 15" laptop models to choose from.
How do you tell if a laptop will be fast?

One of the most important considerations when buying a laptop is speed. After all, no one wants to be stuck waiting for their computer to catch up with them! So how can you tell if a laptop will be fast? One important factor is the processor, also known as the CPU. The speed of the processor is measured in GHz. So, when shopping for your laptop, the higher the GHz the faster the processor.

Another factor to consider is the RAM. The RAM, or random-access memory is the memory that your computer uses to store information about the current running programs. The more RAM a laptop has, the more programs it can run at the same time without slowing you down. Additionally, the type of storage device in the laptop can also impact the speed. The drive is where your computer stores all of its files and programs. A laptop with a solid-state drive more commonly known as SSD, will generally be faster than the one with a traditional hard drive commonly known as HDD. 

With all of these factors to consider, it can be difficult to determine how fast a laptop will be. Speed will vary depending on the type and quantity of applications you have running on the laptop. However, considering all these factors will give you a better idea of what to expect in terms of speed.

What laptop can last 10 years?

Laptops are great for getting work done, but they don't last forever. The average lifespan of a laptop is estimated at 3-5 years. But, with proper care and maintenance it is possible to get a laptop that could last you 8+ years. We have provided some suggestions to help prolong your laptop.

The lifespan of a laptop is to some degree determined by the components within the laptop such as the RAM, processor, battery and motherboard. Some of these components can be replaced in the event of a fault or failure or upgraded if the laptop's performance starts to stutte. Some laptop components are soldered to the motherboard though and cannot be removed. 

If your laptop is charged, unplug your charger to reduce the risk of your laptop overheating. Another way to control any potential overheating is using laptop cooling pads. They are placed underneath your laptop and will distribute air over more surface area than just one single fan could accomplish alone.

A couple of really important and potentially obvious tips; Use antivirus software and keep liquids away from your laptop! Antivirus software is a great way to keep your personal information safe from hackers but can also protect your laptop from being harmed by any malicious programs or websites. Spilling liquids on laptops is one of the worst things that can happen to a computer owner. Not only is there the possibility of electrical damage, but liquid spills can also cause short-circuits, which can lead to data loss. In addition, liquids can seep into the computer's casing and damage the internal components. If you do spill a liquid on your laptop, it is important to shut it down immediately and unplug it from any power source. Then, you should let it dry completely before trying to use it again. And even if there appears to be no damage, it is always a good idea to take your laptop to a qualified technician for a thorough inspection to be on the safe side.

Is a 7 year old laptop worth fixing or would it be too old?

It's a question we've all faced at one point or another: is it worth fixing my old laptop, or should I just buy a new one? When it comes to laptops, there isn't really a definitive answer. After all, each laptop is different, and the decision of whether to repair or replace ultimately comes down to several factors. Given that software and hardware specs are constantly evolving, the chances are that a laptop that is more than 4-5 years old is nearing the end of its useful lifespan. However, this isn't always the case. If your laptop is still running well and used primarily for low level tasks such as web-surfing and documentation, there may be no real need to get a new one.

On the other hand, if your laptop is starting to show its age in terms of sluggish performance, then it might be time for an upgrade. You might not need to replace the laptop entirely though. A RAM or storage upgrade might be enough to boost its performance; it much depends on the performance demands of the apps you want to run. If the cost of upgrades is more than half the price of a new laptop, then it probably doesn't make financial sense to upgrade it. If you want to run the latest software titles or play the most recent video games, it makes sense to buy a new laptop, even if your current one is not damaged. A lot of the older laptops more than likely do not have the graphic capability to run them smoothly.

By taking these factors into account, you can make the best decision for you and your laptop.

Which laptop has the longest lifespan?

Laptops are an increasingly essential part of our lives, allowing us to work, play and stay connected no matter where we are. But with so many different models on the market, it can be hard to know which one to choose. When it comes to longevity, there are a few things to consider. A key factor to consider is the type of processor. The more powerful and up to date the installed is, the more likely it is that the laptop will stand the test of time and be up to the job in terms of running ever more demanding software applications.

Look for a laptop with a solid-state drive (SSD) instead of a traditional hard drive. SSDs have no moving parts, which means they're less likely to fail over time. The operating system can also affect lifespan. Laptops running Windows tend to have a longer lifespan than those running macOS or Chrome OS. Try and choose a model with a strong aluminium chassis if your budget will let you; this will help protect the internal components from damage if you accidentally drop your laptop. A laptop made with high-quality materials is more likely to last longer than one made with cheaper materials such as flimsy plastics. Finally, make sure to buy from a reputable brand that offers good customer support in case you run into any problems down the road. Lenovo laptops, for instance, are renowned for their durability, particularly their line of ThinkPad laptops.

With all these factors in mind, it's clear that there's no one answer to the question of which laptop has the longest lifespan. However, if you take all these factors into consideration, you should be able to find a laptop that will last you for many years to come.

Is it better to have more RAM or storage?

When it comes to computers, there are two things that are always in demand: speed and storage. And while you can never have too much of either one, the question remains: is it better to have more RAM or storage? The answer, as with most things in life, is that it depends as they both do different things. The more RAM you have, the more applications you can run simultaneously and the better overall performance can be. Storage is required to save all your files such as documents, photos and video clips.

If you use your computer mainly for tasks like web browsing, word processing, and light image editing, then you probably don't need a lot of either RAM or storage. However, if you regularly use resource-intensive programs like video editing or gaming, then you'll need more RAM to keep your computer running smoothly. Likewise, if you have a large media collection or frequently work with large files, then you'll need more storage space to keep everything organized. Ultimately, the best way to figure out how much RAM and storage you need is to assess your needs and usage patterns. Also consult the recommended specs for the apps you typically need to run. With that information in hand, you can make an informed decision about which is more important for your needs: more RAM or storage.

Which brand of laptop is the most reliable?

When it comes to laptops, there are a few brands that consistently rank at the top in terms of reliability. HP and Dell are two of the most well-known names in the laptop world, and for good reason. Both companies have a solid reputation for making durable, high-quality laptops that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. Lenovo is another brand that is known for its reliable laptops. In addition to being durable, Lenovo laptops are also often very affordable, making them a great option for budget-conscious shoppers. When it comes to finding a reliable laptop, these are three brands that should be at the top of your list. Apple MacBooks also have a stellar reputation for excellent build quality and superior reliability. Expect to pay a premium for an Apple laptop but you will be purchasing a high-end laptop that should last you for years.

Which laptops last the longest?

Like most electronic devices, all laptops will have a finite shelf life. Technology is constantly evolving and software applications become ever more demanding over time. A current laptop with up to date specs may struggle to run the very latest programs available a few years down the line.

If you're looking for a durable laptop, pretty much all the major laptop manufacturers produce laptops that are reliable, covered by warranty and built to stand the test of time. Not all laptops are created equal though and there are a few things to look for when it comes to longevity.

Start by looking at build quality. Premium laptops tend to be manufactured to more exacting standards using more expensive materials such as carbon and metal alloy chasses. Budget models often feature cheaper, plastic cases which may not withstand the same amount of wear and tear.

Next look at the age of the laptop's components as these too are constantly evolving. Processors for example are regularly updated and refreshed by the manufacturer with a new generation released every year or so. A laptop featuring an older processor may be a few pounds cheaper but there may be a performance trade-off to consider.

Finally, also consider the quantity and type of ports and expansion slots the laptop comes with as generally speaking, the more of these that are available, the more options you have for connectivity to external devices and future upgrades both of which can often extend the laptop's useful life.

Don't forget, most laptops come with optional warranty extensions that can give you peace of mind that your laptop is covered against faults and failures over a longer period of time.

Which is the best laptop for home use?

Deciding on the best laptop for home use depends on several factors, including budget, intended use, and personal preferences. For many people, the best laptop for home use is a relatively inexpensive model that is versatile, easy to use and ideal for simple tasks like web browsing, documents, and streaming. If this is what you require, Chromebooks are a popular choice for this purpose, and they are also lightweight, portable, and they come with a wide range of built-in apps.
However, if you after a more powerful machine, for video editing or gaming, then a more traditional Windows laptop with a larger screen, RAM & storage may be a better option. Ultimately, the best laptop for home use is the one that best meets your own personal needs, but with so many great options available, with a bit of research, you're sure to find the perfect fit. Feel free to get in touch if you'd like some more advice.

Which laptop brand has best after sales service?

Deciding on a laptop can be tough - there are so many brands, models, and features to choose from. But once you've finally made your decision and taken the plunge, you want to fee assured you're going to be properly looked after in the unfortunate event of a problem or failure. Below, we have put together a quick summary of the top 4 laptop brands strengths and weaknesses based on the different types of support they offer.

All the main laptop vendors offer a support telephone number for you to contact them if you have an issue. When calling to speak to an agent over the phone, it is often the luck of the draw as to whether you get a knowledgeable person on the other end of the line who can help resolve your issue straight away. When doing our research on the top 4 laptops brands, Lenovo, HP, Dell and Apple, it does seem to be a common theme that it can take a few call transfers and quite some time to resolve your issue.

If you do not want to speak with someone, there are other options online such as live chat with an agent via the manufacturer’s website. Through our research, we have found live chat for Lenovo can take time to get your issue resolved. The support is very helpful, but responses can be delayed. Live chat on HP’s website can be quite tedious as you initially have to connect to a Virtual Assistant before you get a chance to speak with a human. However, it is a different story when it comes to Dell & Apple’s live chat services. You can connect to an agent via live chat pretty much instantly with both. Dell’s support agents are also able to connect to your device remotely to help you through your issue and find a resolution. Along with being responsive and helpful, Apple do things with a sense of humour that can help lighten the potentially stressful situation you may be in with your device.

All 4 of these brands also offer social media support, mainly via Twitter. But this is where the situation completely flips. Where Lenovo and HP fall short on their respective Live Chats, they make up for it on Twitter. If you decide to message or ‘@’ the manufacturer via Twitter, with knowledgeable agents who respond quickly, it should be smooth sailing! On the other hand, Dell & Apple do not bode so well on Twitter. Although Apple are very responsive, the actual responses can be quite generic with just simple links to guides that can be found on their website. Dell have integrated the dreaded Virtual Assistant into their social media support which can be off-putting to some, but the response time via Twitter is not ideal either.

Bottom line is, they each have their strengths and their weaknesses. However, all 4 of these brands have been in business for a long time and are reputable companies. Trying to decide which brand has the best after sales service all comes down to preference and experience. If you prefer dealing with your issue online, then either one could be a viable choice, however, if you would prefer speaking with an agent over the phone, then be prepared for some wait time.

What are the most important features when buying a laptop?

Laptops have become an essential tool for many people, whether they use them for work, school, or leisure. With so many different laptops on the market, it can be tough to know what to look for when making a purchase. Here are some of the most important factors to consider when buying a laptop:


Processor: The processor is the brains of the laptop and determines how quickly and smoothly it will run. When comparing processors, look for one that is fast and energy efficient.

Display: The laptop's display is one of the most important things to consider. Make sure to choose a screen with good resolution and a clear and bright display to ensure you will be comfortable looking at it for extended periods of time.

Battery life: Battery life is critical when choosing a laptop if you're going to be using it away from a wall socket. After all, there's nothing worse than having your computer die in the middle of a project. Be sure to select a laptop with a good battery life so that you can stay productive even when you're on the go.

Weight and portability: If you plan on taking your laptop with you frequently, then weight and portability are very important considerations. Choose a light laptop that is easy to carry, depending on what you require the laptop for, a notebook may just work!

Storage Capacity: If you need to store a lot of data, look for a laptop with plenty of hard drive space or a solid-state drive. Many laptop owners are choosing laptops with solid-state drives or SSDs as they offer a lot more speed than a hard drive and they are also a lot lighter in weight.

RAM (Random Access Memory): The amount of RAM you need will depend on your specific usage patterns and the type of software you use. If you only use your laptop for basic tasks like browsing the web and checking email, then 8GB of RAM should be sufficient.

Should I buy a refurbished laptop?

Buying a laptop can be a big investment. There are a lot of choices on the market, so it is important to do your research before making a purchase. One option that may be worth considering is a refurbished model. Refurbished laptops are typically cheaper than new laptops, and they can be a great option for budget-minded shoppers. Buying refurbished laptops is also the eco-friendly choice. It gives used equipment a second lease of life, protects our planet's precious resources, helps reduce waste and minimises your environmental impact.

Refurbished laptops are often laptops that have been returned by customers and then inspected, tested and cleaned by the manufacturer/reseller before being put back on sale. There are a few things you will need to consider if you are looking to purchase a refurbished laptop.

One of the main things to consider is the warranty. Reputable dealers will offer a warranty of at least 90 days, so you can feel confident that your purchase is protected. It's also important to check the returns policy in case there are any issues with the laptop. Additionally, refurbished laptops may have cosmetic damage or other wear and tear that you wouldn't see on a new laptop. Again, reputable refurbished laptop sellers are transparent about the cosmetic condition of their products. This is often expressed via a graded scale with grade A being equivalent to 'as new' condition. As you weigh your options, it's important to consider both the pros and cons of buying a refurbished laptop before making your final decision.

What's the difference between a business laptop and a regular laptop?

While some laptops are classified as business laptops, in many cases there is no reason why a business laptop can't be used for non-business related usage and vice versa. That being said, there are sometimes some distinguishing features and some generalisations that can be made to distinguish between business laptops and regular laptops.

Business laptops are designed with productivity and manageability in mind. They typically have higher-end processors and more RAM than regular laptops so that they can handle more demanding tasks such as video editing and graphic design. Business laptops often include management software to allow their easy configuration and deployment within an organisation. They also tend to have longer battery life, as they need to be able to power through long meetings and workdays. In addition, many business laptops come equipped with security features such as biometric fingerprint scanners and facial recognition software to protect sensitive data.

Regular laptops, on the other hand, are often more versatile and affordable. While they may not have the same raw power as business laptops, they're still capable of handling common tasks such as web browsing, streaming and word processing. Some regular laptops are also lighter and more portable, making them ideal for users who need to move around frequently. And because they don't always have the same security features and enterprise components as business laptops, they're typically less expensive.

What's the difference between a laptop and a notebook?

Nowadays, the terms laptop and notebook are used interchangeably by most people and manufacturers so the top level answer is 'not much'. Historically though, there were differences between the two labels and it's worth looking back briefly at these.

Laptops were generally larger and heavier than notebooks, making them less ideal for true mobility. However, laptops typically featured more powerful processors and better graphics capabilities than notebooks, making them better suited for gaming and other processor-intensive tasks. In addition, laptops usually had larger displays and full-sized keyboards, making them more comfortable to use for extended periods of time. Notebooks, on the other hand, were smaller and lighter than laptops, making them more convenient for travel. However, they typically had less powerful processors and lower-quality graphics capabilities. In addition, notebooks usually had smaller displays and keyboards, which can be uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time. 

To summarise, laptop and notebook are different labels for a portable computer and today there is no distinction between the two terms.
