|Feature||Spec||What it means|
|Inputs/Outputs||USB ports: 3
HDMI ports: 1
|Whether you wish to transfer documents or connect to hardware such as a TV or scanner etc, the input and output ports on a computer are essential and very helpful.
The common slots you will require on the computer are USB for connecting hardware like key boards and HDMI for connecting to the television.
|CPU||2x Intel Celeron||The processor chip generally decides the quickness and power of your computer. The central processing unit acts like the mind of your laptop. It tells your computer what to do and when. You can choose from a number of different processor chips available. Two of the market leaders are AMD & Intel.
For the most part Intel CPUs are better than AMD but more expensive.
|Operating System||Windows 10||There are 3 types of OS Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac and Linux based Android. All are very advanced systems and operate efficiently. Some software packages like Microsoft Office will only work on Microsoft Windows.
Mac is popular for their graphics and publishing software. Google Android is designed for tablets and large screen phones.Chrome OS is a new addition to this list, it is simple to operate for browsing online and writing emails.
|Hard Disk||32 GB||A hard drive on your laptop is where a users music, videos, photos and documents are stored. Hard drives are measured normally in gigabytes or terrabytes with one TB is 1000 GB. Videos use the most roomthe standard movie could use between 1-2 gigabytes. Hard disks commonly range from 128GB to 2TB.|
|Random Access Memory||4 GB||More RAM in a notebook means it can complete more tasks at the same time.
RAM is mainly over utilised when you have a number of web browser tabs open simultaneously. 4GB+ RAM is going to be perfect for someone who likes to multitask. High usage applications such as image editing and newer multiplayer games could require 8GB. For general internet browsing 2GB is all that is needed.
|Screen Resolution||35.6 centimetres – 1366 x 768||The screen size on your laptop will determine the total physical size of the machine. The tinyest screens are as small as eleven inches while the biggest are over eighteen inches. A large screen size often means better resolution, this is helpful when working the device for longer periods. HD screens have at least a 1720 x 1080px screen resolution.|
|Battery Life||9 hours (41 watt_hours)||Batteries on a laptop can be plugged in to recharge but some models of laptop drain battery faster.
Bare in mind that battery longevity varies depending on processor and screen utilisation. The batteries should range between around 3-12 hrs. As the battery ages the battery life can go down. For people on the road, it is good to have a laptop with that better battery.
