With the invention of LED technology, which is now used on Led TV  , has improved greatly the efficiency and lowered the prices. Though a hard core computer professional or a gaming enthusiast may need a laptop with top features, for other people, who have to perform lighter tasks, huge array of excellent but cheap laptops are available.

Buying Cheap laptop
Tips to choose Excellent & cheap Laptops for Office- 

When you are buying laptop for your office worker or for light work, there is no point of investing a lot on laptop features which you may not need. For example, now a days many laptops like Macbook Air comes with SSD (Solid state drive), which makes your computer faster and takes less space, but at the same time it increases the cost of laptop by a great extent. Same goes with Processor and RAM of laptop. More over, when you are working on saving money and get a budget laptop for your office employee for work like Word Processing, data entry you might not need a high end processor, upgraded RAM, graphics card, Webcam and so on.

There are many entry level laptop offered by companies like Dell, HP, Sony which you can purchase and save considerable amount on your laptop purchases. Here are 3 important tips and parts of a laptop, where you can save money.

Choosing a Budget Processor

People who use laptop for normal activities such as, doing some office work, surfing, sending emails, and playing games with ordinary graphics might want to go for an Intel dual core processor. This is embedded in most of the computers that are being used now. Also, people who work in IT companies, that involve lighter work can use it, as it a versatile version and can cope up with most of your work, unless and until you have to perform some heavy duty work. Many laptop manufacturing companies like Acer, HP, Dell, etc use it and are available at considerable prices. Just to let know, a laptop as powerful as the one, using a dual core processor can serve the purpose for most consumers.

RAM – Want to have the cheap and best?

RAM, which is known as Random Access Memory, for a cheap and best laptop will be around 2GB. RAM, can be quantified as per the number of random applications a laptop can perform. More intensified users who are interested in latest videogames with plenty of graphics and computer professionals who access random applications and perform hardcore programming and multimedia mat require a greater RAM capacity. But normal users and professionals from other departments, who do not perform hardest of the tasks, 2GB RAM should be adequate. Hence this is a normal requirement and is employed in most of the notebooks, which targets professionals from a huge sector and this is the best and affordable alternative for most of them.

Another good thing about RAM is, you can always upgrade it if required. You don’t need to spend a lot when buying bulk laptop for your employees and you can simply upgrade RAM at later stage if required. Many manufacturers like Dell, HP offers cheap RAM upgrade option which sounds very lucrative, but before investing on it ask yourself: Do your employee work really require that much of RAM? I’m sure you giving laptop for work and not for entertainment. Right?

Hard Disk Drive (HDD) – Don’t go for more than needed!!

This is yet another important factor that drives the price of your lappy. For most of us, a standard memory hard drive will be acceptable because, even a HDD of standard size can store heaps of data. Hence there is no need to spend those extra few hundred dollars for something you might not need. In case, if you find in future, that you have to store more data, you can always buy an external hard drive and connect it to your system externally which will also serve the same purpose as the internal one. This is a better idea to buy some time, if you are unable to buy a notebook with huge memory, when you have limited funds.

A basic 150 GB HDD is enough for your employee and if require in future, you can always take help of extrenal HDD to extend the storage. Also when it comes to enterprise setup, you can take advantage of cloud storage instead of local storage for quick access of all files.

The above mentioned three are the important factors that rule the price of your next laptop. With the above mentioned configurations, there are a huge number of laptops available in all most all the top selling brands, as these are the most wanted ones. Though the above mentioned information is quite handy, it is recommended that you do as much research as possible from your side, to find the best laptop that fits you. After all it’s your money and we care for it as much as you do!!
