Screen size and weight

Balance the amount of portability you need against performance to find the right size for you. Larger screens will be harder to travel with and have a shorter life but will support better graphics and more power. Smaller screens will be just the opposite.


The Computer processing unit (CPU) is your computer’s brain. The two main CPU providers are Intel and AMD.

Dual-core CPUs are more powerful with better support for gaming and graphics, while single-core CPUs are much more cost-effective for people who simply use their computer for basic office and web-browsing functions such as analysis.
