214

With so much hype in the tech industry, especially with so many high end laptops, one can lose focus on what kind of computer they need. The truth is, unless you are into serious gaming, computer programming, or video editing, all you need is a basic laptop. By modern standards, a basic laptop is very capable and is capable of completing most common tasks. Tasks such as editing documents, sending emails, video chatting, streaming HD movies, light gaming, and doing research just to name a few, can be comfortably done on any basic laptop.

The compromise

Now, if you are looking for a computer for basic computing, there are so many options for you out there. However, it is important to note that these laptops compromise on some areas to make it up on the price. For instance, a normal basic laptop would have a low power processor and in most cases, a smaller SSD drive. On the bright side, you can always leverage the power of cloud storage, and media streaming services such as Netflix.
