A laptop can do more than just sending emails or watching movies and TV shows. However, getting the right laptop to get the job done is what we all would often consider in the business world. Once you step into this world, “the dog ate my homework” does not apply here, that is like the oldest excuse that exists in the excuse book, so better come up with a new one.

When talking business, a dream laptop that would instantly cross your mind is the one that has the ability and stability to work under pressure and doesn’t abandon you at the eleventh hour. You would also imagine your dream laptop to have relatively long battery life. The ultimate point you would want is for your laptop to die in the middle of a presentation. RIP!

Whatever it is, we will help you find that oomph factor you are searching for on your laptop. Before we display our top picks for 2020, here is a little run down over the features and specs you should consider when shopping for a computer.

1. What To Look For In A Business Laptop?

Step 1: need to have a clear budget set out before you head to the tech store.

Step 2: an operating system you are comfortable working with. Research about Chrome, Windows, and macOS and pick your best bet. However, windows and macOS tops the charts in terms of office laptops.

Step 3: yourself these questions when choosing the design. Would you prefer a traditional or a hybrid laptop? Is a comfy keyboard your top priority? Would you travel around often with your laptop or stay at one location? Is a stylus or a touchscreen essential?

Step 4: come the specs. First things first, the CPU, you cannot make any compromises here.
A business, use CPUs starting from Core i3 to Core i7 tend to display better performance. If you need a laptop for just general business tasks, then Intel Core m3, Intel Core m5, and Intel Core m7 are not bad options to look at as well.

And Storage is the next part. Any laptop with a 2GB RAM is a definite NO. 4GB RAM and 8GB RAM are the ideal ones. If you are big on a budget, then 16GB RAM can be considered, too.

Life is the most crucial one. It is a good idea to go through the battery life of the laptop you plan to purchase. Keep in mind that every manufacturer uses various metrics to measure battery life, better research on them, and then opt for the best one.

If you still are confused, another way to observe a laptop is to rent a laptop you like for a day or two. This will give you a good idea about the battery life and the processor of the laptop, which can help you make the purchase.
