Ok. Let’s solve – not the trickiest – but still not the most trivial of tasks.
This year for Christmas I’d like a new laptop – a better, tougher one. I’ve only had the one I’ve got now a little over a year, but with my business schedule and the computer’s constant use and abuse, it’s on its last legs already. It looks tatty, and the keyboard feels like it’s going to fall apart. So, yes: I need an upgrade…
But what device should I get? Crikey. Where to start? Ah yes – at the beginning: with my requirements…
My user requirements aren’t too convoluted, but then again – they’re not mere email/ messenger/ Instagram/ Pokemon, either. Here they are:
- Office, email, browser, different editors and messengers;
- It needs to be able to withstand an intensive workload;
- I’d like a bigger screen than the norm (13″+);
- A full-size keyboard would be good too.
Straight away that rules out smartphones and tablets, and it looks like a mid-size laptop is the way to go.
But which operating system? Well, the list of options isn’t that long these days: Windows, Mac, Linux.
Every system is good – in its own way…
