Laptops are designed to be a portable version of your desktop computer, with similar functionality and performance. Laptops are essential for working from home, connecting with friends online, studying at school and university, playing online games and much more.
A 2-in-1 laptop is exactly as the name suggests – it’s essentially two products in one. 2-in-1 laptops provide the functionality of a laptop with the portability of a tablet and can be used as either a traditional laptop or a touchscreen tablet.
A gaming PC is like a high powered regular computer, but it’s designed for PC gaming, has more power, can work harder, and has specific gaming hardware. Gaming Laptops contains better graphics, more detailed sound, amazing responsiveness, a lot of extra speed, and more power at every turn.
“Laptops are rising in popularity due to their mobile nature in that they’re able to be carried with you and used wherever you go,” says Jason Tavoletti, The Good Guys Buyer - Computers, Printers & Monitors.
Laptops have either a traditional hard drive (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD). Most Laptops have moved to SSD devices.
HDD: Found in some laptops. These are cheaper and have more capacity than SSD devices.
SSD: Although they have a smaller capacity, SSDs run a lot faster, allowing you to transfer, save and access files more quickly. More of the current Laptops contain SSD storage.
