While we strive to save energy by using fans and blinds to cool down, we may sometimes fall back on the air-conditioner to beat the heat.
What then, is the best way to keep our electricity bills down?
Laptops have become a staple device in many homes over the past few years. Not only are they portable – you can move and use them around and out of home – but their systems are also becoming more powerful.
HOW IT WORKS
Laptops are generally more expensive than a desktop computer. This is because their components have to be smaller, and yet to run on battery. As laptops become lighter, easier to carry around and more affordable consumers and small businesses are preferring it over the traditional desktop computer.
ASK BEFORE YOU BUY
What will you be using the laptop primarily for?
If it’s for heavy-duty tasks such as photo, audio or video editing, you would need more RAM (random access memory) – usually between 8GB and 16GB.
Consider the weight of the laptop, screen size and how long the battery can last on a single charge, if you are going to use the laptop on the move.
