Different laptops have different personalities to suit you
Most of the buzz around portable computing these days centers itself around tablets. Laptops have been cast aside as a settled affair. There really isn’t that much competition anymore for which laptop computers are the best around. For most people, it is a question of whether they want a MacBook or a laptop that runs Windows 8. Even then, that’s less a question of hardware than it is of preference to operating system. If you look around college campuses and work places, there are definite personalities for different types of laptops, though. Even if the war for dominance is all but over and there are no longer any butting heads, the influences and preferences that helped decide which portable computing system was best for them.
- HP laptops – they’ve adopted the Apple style minimalist design keyboard. While this is not functionally superior, some people like the feel of separated keys when typing and the finish is rather aesthetically appealing. As with all laptops, the box comes standard with an HP laptop and HP laptop charger.
- MacBooks – as with all laptops, there are varying degrees of power and varying types of designs you can select from with MacBooks. Macs are known for having premium design and, of course, a very simple operating system. The only drawback is a deficiency in software – games in particular. Macs are designed with special magnetic laptop charger chords that disconnect easily as to prevent accidents like tripping over wires.
- Sony – Vaios have been redesigned of recent so that they are sleeker and more powerful. Their appeal is primarily that of a multimedia device. Sony Vaios are marketed as laptops that are sleek and great for watching movies and listening to music.
If you are looking for a new laptop, be sure to see them in person to assess which one most aptly fits your lifestyle.
