Laptop Buying Guide - Part 2
-I'm gonna give you a very quick run down with the major categories of laptops and ultra-portable laptop is usually 11 or 12 inch system. It's got a lower power CPU, maybe an Intel Core i3 or something from AMD it's great for carrying around it everyday. Thirteen inch laptops are the only category with a size is important enough that-- it's the name of the category. That's something like the MacBook or the MacBook Air a lot of ultra-books falling into this category as well. I would think a 13 inch is the biggest size that you can carry around everyday and the smallest size that you could comfortably work on all day long. Then you've got a mid-size laptop that's probably what you have right now, usually a 14 or 15 inch. They're okay for carrying around once or twice. They generally remain rooted to your desk the most mainstream of laptop. And then finally you've got the big desktop replacement. These are 17 inch or lager screens so usually a very powerful CPUs and discreet graphic, this card is great for playing games or watching HD movies but you're not gonna like carrying around and they don't last very long with an unplug into an outlet.
