Buying a Laptop: Looking at the Specs
Everyone is different so my answer may be same as yours, however I do want to share some general guidelines to make the decision process that much easier.
I understand the basics; I used to build my desktops. But as I was sorting through laptops, I was a bit overwhelmed by the specs being thrown at me.
Fortunately, my husband keeps up with tech so I asked him questions and asked his advice as I whittled down my list to a few contenders.
Seeing that others are in the boat I was, I convinced him to come back on the podcast to answer some questions. So if you’re in the market for a new laptop, you might want to save this episode and give it another listen before you shop.
