Find the Best Laptop for Your Company with IT Services in Atlanta

IT services in Atlanta can be important in helping you find the best possible solutions for your business. Sometimes, it’s better for you to go with the cloud. Sometimes, it’s better for you to go with a Device as a Service (DaaS) option. And sometimes, you want to purchase top-of-the-line laptops and renew them periodically.

Different solutions will be more or less appropriate for different businesses. Here are key considerations in purchasing laptops to help you get an idea what’s out there and what will best match your business:

The Right Size in Terms of Physicality and Storage

IT services providers in Atlanta can help you determine what size your team will need in a laptop. Sometimes all you really need is a “web portal,” like what Google started providing a few years back.

These are tiny little laptops that are basically a screen and keyboard thrown together, with a bare minimum of storage space on the device’s internal hard drive. Sometimes, you need a laptop that’s basically a portable desktop computer and has several terabytes of storage.

You need to know what sort of work you or personnel will be doing regularly. What average amount of data will they produce, how much internet will they use, and how portable does their workstation have to be? Answer these questions— consultation helps.

Touchpads, Connectivity, Performance

Apple computers had a monopoly on touchpads for a while. These are the rectangular box used in lieu of a mouse on most laptops. Windows devices had unresponsive touchpads people hated. Now you can have your choice of touchpads, generally more responsive ones are better. However, a wireless mouse is always an option.

Connectivity will depend on a few factors, like the size of the device you’re using. Larger devices have more connection ports. Also, performance will be better with a higher-priced model, but you may not need it for something as simple as word processing.

Graphics and Battery Life

The longer the battery life, the better. But cheap devices may only have one or two hours. Also, cheaper devices won’t have nearly so crisp graphics as more expensive units.

The graphics and battery life of a $300 Lenovo device will be scant compared to a MacBook Pro, but the MacBook is going to be between $1k and $2k, depending on how old it is. If you’re not doing video or music processing, the Lenovo may be a better buy.
