How To Get a Laptop For a Pro

Published at 03/25/2012 11:34:39


Professionals will need laptops for professionals, in other words, they'll need a pro laptop, it's as simple as that. Not every laptop out there will work for every professional, and computers professional need an even greater range of hardware and software to work with. Writers will need a laptop that has a comfortable keyboard, designers will need a computer that can handle picture editing, programmers will need a pr computer that processes very well, animators and 3D artist will need laptops with extreme graphical  prowess, and of course video editors will need the same as well.

So if you're looking for the perfect professional laptop, we're here to show you how to find it, in five easy steps.

Step 1

The first step is to figure out, what exactly you need from a professional laptop, is a comfortable keyboard?  A large screen? Maybe you need a HD screen? What about the processing power? Or do you need it to be rugged? Or does the look matter more than the power? Or are both essential? There are many laptops that cater to all, some, or at least a few of those prerequisites

If you need the perfect pro laptop, that has a comfortable keyboard, big screen, powerful processor and a good discrete graphics card, the 17 inch Macbook Pro is great for graphic designers and animators, HP's line of Elitebooks is perfect for traveling businessmen who needs a rugged computing companion, while Lenovo's Y series are great for processing and come with some graphical muscle to back it up. They look ugly though, Lenovo's laptops are the ugliest laptops ever.


Step 2

The second step, is to figure out your budget, because pro laptops don't come cheap. They're were meant for business professionals originally, and as such have always commanded a premium price. You can always shave a few dollar of the price tag by buying a professional laptop on sale, off season or with a gift card.

But other wise, be prepared to spend at least $1,000 on a pro laptop, and even more depending on the brand (Apple's Macbook Pro will cost you nearly $2,000).

Step 3

The fourth step is to start looking for a pro laptop, search online, use keywords like "best hd pro laptops" "best laptops for graphical design" or whatever you specific needs are. once you've found the perfect laptop, and again here I recommend choosing between Apple, HP, and Lenovo, it's onto the next step.

Step 4

The fourth step is research, found the perfect pro laptop? Great! Now find out what other people say about it, how good is it? What common problems does it have? How often do they occur, what's the customer service like? Are they prompt and efficient? Or are  they lazy, rude and inefficient? Does the warranty service cover international travel? Local repair or mail-in service? If it does cover mail-in service, who picks up the tab? You or the laptop maker?


Step 5

The final step is to finally buy it, once you're absolutely sure you've found the best pro laptop for you, either buy it online or buy it a local store or reseller.


Don't forget to buy a carrying case as well.

Keep you warranty handy.

Consider buying an extended warranty, make sure it's applicable worldwide.
