Finding the right laptop

Let’s face it, I’m a geek. A pretty big one at that. Running blogs as well as an online business obviously means I rely on my computer a lot. It’s a life-line which enables me to do what I do. Not to mention the looming prospect of University coursework soon and simply the bulky 3-year-old Sony Vaio just won’t cut it as my portable computing device. I’m on the hunt for a decent laptop, at a decent price and most importantly, with the specs to satisfy the geek in me who needs something where I can do everything no matter where I am.

Often it is a real struggle to find the perfect laptop for you. Nothing is quite right, it has your ideal spec, but terrible battery life or its got the battery life but a but looks like a McDonald’s kids toy. what’s worse is when the sites you use don’t have full and detailed information on all devices, making it extremely hard to do side-by-side comparisons. That is until I came across the Laptops on and I can genuinely say I am extremely impressed with the excellent consistency in how they display their product information.

All seem to have the same information meaning you can easily do side-by-side comparisons. Another massive step up from every other online retailer is they have taken the time to provide photographs for all parts of their laptops, something which many seem to see as an after-thought but vital when spending £500+ on a Laptop I’ll be using for years.

I currently have my eye on the HP ProBook 4530 (right pic) which certainly seems to check all my boxes! – What this space for the review…
