Laptop deal buying tips
When shopping for laptop deals, pay attention to the processor, avoiding Pentium or Celeron processors. Look for Intel 12-series Core chips or higher, such as the Core i5-12510U, or the Core i7-13800H, or go with an AMD Ryzen processor. Avoid GPUs that don’t offer much boost over their previous series. Also, watch out for eMMC storage and low-resolution display options when considering a laptop purchase.
In conclusion, take the time to research and consider your options before making a purchase.
