Instructions

  1. 1

    Determine what the primary use of the laptop will be. Each set of specifications are suited to different tasks.

  2. 2

    Enter the technical specifications and price range of the laptop you are looking for into a website such as cnet.com.

  3. 3

    From the resulting list, choose several laptops in which you are interested, and keep note of their brands, model numbers and prices.

  4. 4

    Read reviews of other users that have purchased the computers in which you are interested; these opinions can be very helpful to gage aspects of the laptop that won't be listed in the specs section, such as build quality, user-friendless, ease of set-up and customer service.

  5. 5

    From your list, choose the laptop that has the specifications you need, that is also the most cost effective and is well reviewed by other users.

Tips and warnings

  • Try to choose a search website that is not affiliated with any laptop manufacturer, so that none of the details are biased.
