When you plan to buy business laptops, the varied and decorative features available in different laptop series' can confuse you and you may end up buying the wrong one that is not suitable for your needs.
So, to make things easier, here is a list of essential features you need to look for when you plan to purchase a business laptop.
1. Screen Resolution
The image you see on the screen is made of thousands of pixels. The screen resolution determines how many pixels the screen can display vertically and horizontally. Many laptop buyers fail to understand the relation between screen size and screen resolution. For example, many people opt for a 15 inch laptop over 13 inch laptop as they feel the bigger screen size will show more information on a page which is not true.
The truth is, with a higher resolution the screen will be able to show more of your word document, spreadsheet, and web page. It also means you will scroll less while working.
2. Display Connectors
Business executives are often required to connect their laptops to bigger screens for presentations. HDMI is a popular connector port to connect your laptop to HD displays. Depending on your laptop’s graphic card, the laptop should have an HDMI or Display Port. If the laptop only offers a VGA port, you will need to look for other laptop models.
3. A Removable and Higher mAh Battery
The battery is one of the critical components of your laptop, and powers your laptop. The capacity of a battery degrades over time, and you might be required to replace the battery after 2-3 years.
If the battery is removable, you can easily get another battery from the online market and swap batteries, when the battery inside the laptop needs replacing. Laptops with non-removable batteries do not have such an option.
The higher mAh the battery has, will power your laptop for a longer amount of time before getting depleted. This means you will not be frequently looking for power sockets in the office or outside the office. A big mAh battery will increase the productivity time by allowing you to work for extended periods.
4. Enhanced Security
Since a laptop serves as a workstation for managers and executives, it is quite natural that laptops store sensitive and confidential data inside the HDD. When you go to buy business laptops for your organisation, look for enhanced security features like a fingerprint reader or biometric security. This will ensure only authorised persons are able to access the confidential data stored on the laptop.
5. Viewing Angle
Business executives travel more often, and are required to work while on the move. While writing an important email or reading a confidential document, the last thing you would want is the person sitting beside you peeping at your screen. You need to look for a screen with a narrow viewing angle to ensure such peeping-Toms are not a threat to working on a laptop while travelling.
Whenever you go to buy business laptops, make sure you consider laptop models that have the above mentioned essential features. Business laptops are generally equipped with faster processors and ample RAM, so you can give this secondary importance.
