Best laptops in 2020

The whole world is going digital and starting work from home for which laptop is a necessity.

Struggling to find a perfect laptop for you. I had gone through the same phase a year before, researched a lot of articles, watched videos it was a tedious process to find a one for self.

Don’t worry you don’t have to go through the whole same process.

We have hand-picked some of the best laptops based on your needs.

How to choose a perfect one for you

Choosing a perfect laptop is not a piece of cake, especially if there are hundreds to choose from.

But we had made it easier for you by the following steps.

First of all, decide your need-

(if you already knows want kind of laptop you need but just want an opinion skip to our recommendations 🙂

Whether you want it for –

  • Normal usage– browsing, Microsoft office, playing videos and songs, or maybe the small games.
  • Office usage / Photo-editing– High-end documentation, doing multiple tasks, coding, basically you need to do multitasking.
  • Graphic designing
  • Playing games
  • Video editing

After deciding the purpose of buying a laptop let’s go the second most important thing is to.

Deciding your budget

Have an estimate of the budget is nice. However, it may go slightly up and down.

  • Under 30000– entry-level laptops for normal use.
  • 30k – 60k – budget laptop for office or slightly high use.
  • Under 100,000– high-end laptops for heavy usage.
  • Above 100,000 – Premium ones for the extremely fast work.

Choosing a Brand

If the laptop is good then the brand does not matter a lot unless they have bad after sell service and there is not the service center near your residence.

Yes, it very important to choose a brand that is near you or after a few years, you will get pissed off if there is any damage.

Trust me you will thank me later.

Future Proof

Do you need a high spec laptop in the future or don’t have a budget to buy one now.

So, choose a lapi which can be upgraded.

We had made this easier for you by listing it with our every recommendation it is upgradable or not. 

Note- Only RAM and storage is upgradable in most of the laptops, but in some Graphics card can also be upgraded.

To be honest, do not think of changing the processor latter.

If you don’t have any plans that you will not require more power or storage for the next 5 yrs just choose the latest version with the required specification.

Choose Your Specs

Choosing the specs will just remove all your confusion between the brands, models, etc.

Here, are the important one for you-

CPU

The most important unit of any device as it has a huge influence on the performance.

Even the least-expensive can be good enough depending on what you want to do.

There are 2 main players in the market INTEL and AMD.

Both of them offer good to the best processors you to choose from.

INTEL

  • i3- go if you need to do basic tasks
  • i5- for 
  • i7
  • i9

AMD

Graphics Card

Graphic cards make whole your graphic related activities fast and smoother.

Well if you are not involved in graphic designing, editing videos, or not interested in playing the latest games then the integrated graphic is sufficient.

If have any of the above need, a dedicated processor from Nvidia or AMD is essential.

As with CPUs, there are both high- and low-end graphics chips. Low-end gaming or workstation systems today usually have Nvidia MX250 or GTX 1650 GPUs while mid-range models have RTX 2050 or RTX 2060 and high-end models have RTX 2070 or 2080 GPUs.

Let’s keep it simple-

  • Go for a 2GB variant for a normal purpose like photo editing.
Same of the video editing software showing minimum specification.
  • 4GB- for full HD and 4k video editing as recommended by most of the video editing software and for small games or other software like Auto-cad.
  • 8GB- for high-end gaming.

RAM

Storage

However, the traditional HDD gives more storage on the lower price put makes the system slower due to the use of the old rotation technology.

Whereas the SSD uses semiconductor chips to store data, which makes it fast and lightweight and are more durable, but are expensive.

So, go for SSD + HDD combination.

Where install your OS and software on the SSD for faster performance.

Store media files in the HDD to store more in less price.

Display

Higher the number of pixels higher will be the resolution and sharper will it look.

Display quality is about much more than resolution. IPS panels range in color and brightness, so read our reviews to find out if the laptop your considering has a good display. We typically look for n sRGB color rating of over 100% and brightness great than 300 nits results.

Other features-

  • Backlit keyword
  • Webcam
  • Screen to laptop ratio
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Touch screen
  • 2-in-1 laptops- which work as both laptops and tablets. Seeing the higher price goes with it if necessary.

Our recommendation-

  • Go with at least 8th gen intel processor or AMD ……
  • Prefer SSD over HDD for primary storage.
  • Choose a laptop with an 8+ hours battery backup.
  • If you travel a lot don’t go for a bigger screen approx 14 inches is best for you.
  • Choose for HD display over Full HD if have a low budget.
