What to look for in laptops for business

Business laptops are equipped with a broad array of features.

Processors, graphics cards, and RAM
The amount of processing power and memory that a laptop may need is determined by the types of applications it will run. Common business applications require only a mid-level processor and a moderate 4GB to 8GB of RAM, while graphic-intensive applications will need more computer power. On the other hand, a laptop for engineers working with 3D modeling should have the very latest processors with multiple cores, the latest high-end graphics, video cards and 16GB to 32GB of RAM.

Large, high-definition displays offer a more immersive viewing experience. Displays with 4K resolution are ideal for creative professionals working in video, graphics, photography, and animation. Laptops with smaller screens are more portable and will have longer battery life, making them perfect for corridor warriors and workers on the go. 

Workers in areas like government, public safety, field services, and others, devices that offer reliable performance while protecting itself from drops and harsh environments. Rugged laptops designed to perform in harsh environments are critical for workers in fields like industrial manufacturing, transportation, and construction.

Hard drives
Hard disk drives (HDDs) offer higher volumes of storage at a lower price, while solid-state drives (SSDs) offer faster performance and a more compact design. For most work purposes, SSDs are far superior to HDDs. SSDs offer greater reliability and stability, as the moving parts in an HDD are much more susceptible to damage from bumps and drops. The speed of SSDs is critical to the laptop’s performance when working with processing-intensive applications.
