What Makes a Good Laptop Today?
A quick and easy guide on how to pick a best laptop for yourself.
The definition of a good laptop can be different for different users based on their requirements. For a casual user, a Chromebook can be a perfect laptop, however an IT professional or a gamer would need a much better laptop.
The basic components you will find in any laptop are:
- Hard drive(s)
- Motherboard & CPU (Central Processing Unit)
- RAM (Random Access Memory)
- Graphics Card
Choosing a laptop with the right components is very important or one cheap component can bottleneck your entire system and limit performance even if you have other high end components. Lets find out the minimum specifications required for a good laptop.
Hard Drive: SSD or NVME SSD is the kind of hard disk you should opt for. If you plan on having both types of hard drives in your computer then it’s highly recommended you install your operating system on the SSD. This will exponentially increase the loading time and performance of your computer.
Motherboard & CPU: Choosing the right motherboard and CPU is an extremely important choice for your Laptop/PC. The main choice here is between AMD and Intel. AMD CPUs are mostly cheaper than the equivalent Intel CPUs and they have a good track record as well. Don’t go for anything less that an Intel i7 or AMD Ryzen 5.
RAM: When choosing RAM you will generally want 8-16GB depending on how high-end your laptop is going to be.
Graphics Card: The graphics card that is best suited for you will depend on your budget and the performance you expect out of it. Technically some CPUs have integrated graphics, however any gaming laptop worth its salt will have a dedicated graphics card.
And that’s what you need to put together a good laptop.

Here are the most important things to consider before you buy a television.
Screen Size: The biggest factor in your decision will probably be screen size. The trending screen size these days is between 55 and 65 inches.
Screen Resolution: Don’t buy a TV with less than 4K resolution. Avoid full HD or 1080 sets. You can skip 8K TVs (for now). If you are looking for recommendations, check this post on Best 4K TV in India.
Refresh Rate: A higher refresh rate provides smoother motion for everything from movies and shows to live sports and gaming. 120Hz screen will result in an immediate and significant uplift to your experience.
HDR: HDR is a new feature of 4K Ultra HD sets and it stands for high dynamic range. This offers more realistic colors and better contrast.
OLED & QLED TVs: If you can afford paying a premium price, buy an OLED or QLED TVs from LG Sony, Samsung, or TCL. They have best TV picture, colors truly pop, deeper blacks and better contrast and shadow detail than LCD TVs achieve.
HDMI Ports: Look for at least four HDMI ports. And opt for the newer HDMI 2.1 format if you can.
Fast User Interface: Some Smart TVs take lots of time to switch from one app, function, or input to another. A blazingly fast interface that lets you do what you want to do almost before you know you want to do it is a must if you don’t want to find yourself endlessly irritated by how sluggish your Smart TV is.
App Store: Your Smart TV may be the smartest in the world today, but technology doesn’t stand still. It’s important that your Smart TV has access to an app store that offers a wide variety of applications.
Buy a soundbar. TV speakers are worse nowadays because the screens are thinner. Soundbars can significantly improve the cinematic experience and can be installed in minutes.
