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.


  • Know how much hard drive space you require.
  • Know how large a screen you prefer.

If you don’t have much in the way of pictures and videos saved on your computer, a 256 GB SSD drive is more than enough. If you have upwards of 50,000 pictures and videos, chances are a 500GB or 1T drive is in order. These recommendation offer 256 – 512 GB drives, all SSD.

Price varies due to features and build quality.

  • Inspiron: Consumer Grade
  • Latitude: Business Grade

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

  • i5 Processor
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 250 GB Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • 15″ screen, unless portability is an issue.

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