I.T. Can Be Easy – Laptop Buyers Guide

Which laptop is best for me?

Whether you are buying a laptop for home, business, or gaming, it is important to find a laptop that suits your needs. Here are some features you may not have been aware of that should be considered to help you choose the right laptop for your needs.


Central Processing Unit (or simply processor) is the main chip in a laptop responsible for carrying out all its tasks.

  • Everyday processors: If your laptop is for normal home use, choosing from AMD A4, Ryzen 3, Intel Pentium, Celeron or Core i3 would be ideal for watching videos, surfing the web and basic word processing tasks. 
  • Premium processors: If you need a laptop with more power, a Ryzen 5 or Intel Core i5 processor is the best choice for you. These processors are an excellent choice for fast, responsive, affordable laptops and can even support basic gaming.
  • Powerhouse processors: For the best performance, Ryzen 7, Intel Core i7, Intel Core i9 and Intel Xeon processors are the best. With these processors, you can unleash your full creativity!


RAM (random access memory) is a computer’s short-term memory, where the data that the processor is currently using is stored. 

  • 4GB The absolute minimum for Windows and MacOS systems
  • 8GB Good for general web browsing and simple processes
  • 16GB Great for demanding professional software and games
  • 32GB+ Perfect for high-end gaming and professionals
