So, you’re in the store, whether it be Staples, Apple, Best Buy, or another, and you’re not sure of which laptop to go with. The sales guy has been chewing your ear off to the point where his IT tech talk is borderline gibberish. You need to take the bull by the horns and make the right decision. You see a few that are very reasonably priced. But, which one makes the cut?
Here are a three quick ways to test laptops in the store to find the right one:
- How fast? Yes, RAM and processors dictate the speed. But, why not be the one who tests the startup speed of the laptop? Turn off and on the laptop and time the startup speed. Don’t take the specs’ word for it. Do it yourself.
- Nice on the eyes? You’ll be looking at the screen for a while. So, test a YouTube video on all prospective laptops. See which one you favor in terms of color, hue, resolution, and quality.
- Finger-friendly? The keyboard needs to fee nice to the touch. This is the number one reason our customers like going to stores to buy. They want to feel it and make sure it’s comfortable to type on. Give it a whirl and make sure it’s not too small or big, and just right. Also, make sure your the touchpad is comfy and cozy to use.
That’s it. Just three easy, quick ways to test in-store laptops. The take-away here is do not rely on the written specs. Perform the computer service test yourself.
