If you are looking to buy a laptop, this spring might be your best bet to find a great deal. It is one of the best times to invest in a laptop that will stay by your side for the next several years.
So why exactly is springtime the best time to invest in your new technology? Here is why:
The biggest laptops from CES are about to launch.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the best tech trade show of the year, where we get a first look at everything new that is coming out in the world of laptop technology.
The biggest laptop companies are in attendance, from Dell to HP to Lenovo and Asus. This year we saw the Dell XPS 13, which is at the top of the list of best laptops to buy.
Buying in spring gives you a chance to browse laptops without worrying about a newer model coming out immediately after your make your purchase.
Intel just launched new hardware.
Every year, Intel rolls out the next generation of processors. By spring, most laptops that you might be considering will have a new 8th generation processor.
Another important important factor is to purchase a laptop with the most current generation of CPU (central processing unit) because not only does it provide extra speed and power, but to also ensure your laptop will last a long time. Unlike the display, the RAM (random access memory), or even the graphics card, your processor can take years off the life of your computer if it isn’t up to date.
Tech Tip: If you are curious about whether your laptop’s CPU is up-to-date, check the string of numbers after the name of your processor. Look for where your computer says “Core i5”; if the number after the dash starts with an 8 that means its an 8th-generation processor. Example: Core i5-8250U.
