Graphic Design requires performance within a specific time limit. Laptop is a designer’s weapon. Hence, while choosing a laptop one must look at all its aspects and what it can offer. Merely a strong processor and RAM is not enough. One must consider other factors such as a good screen that can put through colors without stress on the eye, good performance and weight, screen size, other features and the price.

There are lot of considerations that need to acknowledged when choosing a laptop. Certain laptops are created for certain purposes. These can be beneficial as they are customized according to the professions. These are certain factors that need to be considered before buying a laptop.

  • Operating System: Operating system is an important factor. Different people are comfortable with different operating systems. There are mainly two types of systems in the market, Windows and MacOS. Google Chrome OS is also found on laptops that are cheaper.
  • CPU (Central Processing System): The CPU is the central processing unit that does all of the multi-purpose calculations of what a typical software is supposed to be able to do. Change a color, draw a line, process keystrokes, open a menu — all that will put the CPU to work. Hence, choosing a powerful and efficient CPU will help you navigate complex tasks faster.
  • Storage: There are mainly two different types of hard drives that you might find in a laptop: hard disk or solid-state. While HDD drives are cheaper and can have more. But, SSD drives are lighter, faster, and are more durable. Newer laptops tend to come with SSD. If you find one that doesn’t, you can always add one.
  • Battery Life: Most graphic designers work late and don’t want to be chained near a charging port. The absence of plugs can sometimes be frustrating. But with a good battery, you can take your laptop wherever you go and get the work done, all the while enjoying freedom!
