Are Cheap Laptops for Sale Worth It?

When it comes to laptop shopping, there can be some pretty decent bargains out there if you look at the right tech store. But how do you know if cheap laptops for sale are worth it?

Here’s the short answer: They ARE worth it – if you know what to look for.

What Is The Cheapest Way To Buy A Laptop?

Before you go shopping, you need to know the cheapest way to buy a new laptop. If you’re looking to get the best deals, it’s best to order them at an online electronics store.

Online tech stores tend to have the most options at the best prices.

What Is the Best And Cheapest Laptop Right Now?

There are a lot of decent low-cost laptops on the market at the moment. What you will find depends entirely on the supplier. On our online tech store, the lowest-cost laptop is the Lenovo 100e 2nd Generation Chromebook, which is currently available for only $340.10. This 11.6” HD laptop houses an Intel Celeron N4020 core, and has 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of SSD internal storage. Coming in a close second is the Asus Chromebook c204, which is priced at $365.70 and features mostly the same specs as the Lenovo.

What Kinds Of Specs Should I Look Out For?

The first thing you should check out is the processor, as a good one is super important for a smooth and fast computing experience. The Intel Core i3 or AMD A6 processors are both considered to be the minimum requirements for a basic laptop that runs simple software like email programmes, internet browsers, and word processors. However, while less powerful, the Intel Celeron N4020 is still quite capable of basic functions.

Random access memory (RAM) will also make a big difference to your laptop’s performance. Generally, 4 GB of RAM is the very least you can do with in a cheap laptop, but 8 GB is better if you want a smoother experience.

Another thing to think about is storage capacity. While you can always add external storage, you should try to have as much as possible – the standard is about 128 GB, although cheaper laptops will have less.

When it comes to laptops, mobility is key. Therefore, the machine’s battery life is also very important to consider if you’re out and about a lot. A minimum battery life of about five hours is okay if you’re just a basic user.

Since you’re going to be spending all your time looking at it, the display is a pretty important aspect of the laptop you choose. For basic use, you could go with a screen resolution of 1366 x 768, although a higher resolution of 1920 x 1080 is more desirable if you can afford it.

Which Brand Of Laptop Is Most Reliable?

Some of the most well-known and reliable laptop brands in New Zealand include Apple, Lenovo, HP, Dell, Asus, and Acer. These brands have a reputation for making good quality products that last a long time if taken care of. Customer reviews consistently put Apple on top, however, the Apple brand is far from being the most affordable.

In various online polls, Lenovo seems to frequently win out as the best low-cost laptop brand.

What Is A Good Price For A Basic Laptop?

You can generally get a basic laptop from one of these brands in New Zealand for anything between about $350 and $700. In this price range, you should be able to find something with a decent processor, enough RAM and storage, a good battery life, and a quality display. Our online electronics store has numerous options in this price range.
