Laptop Recommendations

Products, prices and specification change constantly. The listed recommendations are for general information only and should not be accepted as accurate at any given time. Always confirm current specifications match your needs.

You may be interested in our Personal Computer Buying Service along with selecting the proper form factor ( Desktop, laptop, All-in-One ) and feature recommendations.

IMPORTANT:

  • Know how much hard drive space you require. (Most get by with a 250GB drive)
  • Know how large a screen you prefer. We typically prefer people go with 15.6″ or higher. Of course, battery life, portability, and size may play a role.

If you don’t have much in the way of pictures and videos saved on your computer, a 256 GB SSD drive is typically more than enough. If you have upwards of 50,000 pictures and videos, chances are a 500GB or 1T drive is in order. These recommendations offer 250 – 1T SSD drives. 

Computer prices vary based on features and build quality

  • Inspiron: Consumer Grade
  • Vostro: Consumer\Business
  • Latitude: Business Grade
  • XPS: Consumer Professional Grade
  • Precision: Business Professional Grade

No matter what model you go with, make sure the laptop comes with the following specifications or greater:

  • Intel i5 Processor
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 250 GB Solid State Drive (SSD).

For some, lesser specifications may be adequate, such as single use computers or just a few browser tabs open at any given time. See our options page outlining specifications you may want to consider.

We receive no compensation from Dell, Lenovo, or any other third parties. These recommendations or our personal buying assistance service are meant to replace the custom units we’ve offered for 30 years.
