If you're considering buying a laptop with Windows 11, there are already plenty of models available to choose from. Here are some things to keep in mind before you purchase.
First, why should you choose a laptop with Windows 11? One reason is that it offers additional security features that help protect your data.

Additionally, the new Timeline feature helps you track your activities across devices more easily by keeping a timeline of what you've been working on recently.
When shopping for a Windows 11 laptop, there are several factors to keep in mind. The minimum system requirements needed to run Windows 11 are as follows: 1GHz CPU with 2+ cores on a 64-bit processor or SoC, 4Gb of RAM, 64Gb of storage and TPM 2.0 enabled. Keep in mind that these are the minimum specs you need but for optimum performance, look for laptops with superior specs especially if you'll be using it for more than just basic tasks.
If you’re using the laptop for display related tasks such as graphic design, video editing or for gaming, the type and quality of the display will be important so look for a laptop with a decent size display, analyse the screen resolution, colour gamut, brightness and contrast.
Additionally, check to see that the battery life is long enough for your needs; if you work on the go, you'll want a laptop with great battery life.
