The Laptop: One Piece of Technology That Everyone Struggles With


The laptop is one of the most ubiquitous pieces of technology that we see these days. With their popularity growing, it makes sense that more and more people are interested in buying one. It’s important to note though that these machines are not without their problems and complaints, and can sometimes be difficult for users to figure out. The following post offers a helpful guide to help you avoid some of the pitfalls in a new laptop purchase.

But before we get started with all the particulars, let’s go over what a laptop is in case you’re wondering. A laptop, as its name suggests, is a computer that is portable enough to use on your lap. They usually fit one of two sizes a 13-inch screen or 15-inch screen and they’re named according to screen size. These computers listed by offer a lot of advantages over their desktop counterparts.

Office, Business, Accountant, Accounting

The first advantage:

as the name suggests, is portability. Since laptops are light and can be taken around from place to place with ease, you don’t have to worry about missing out on work or fun because you’re tied down by your desktop computer at home. Another advantage of a laptop over a desktop is its resilience in the face of accidents and damage. This is because while laptops are packed with power, components, and other electronics that could be damaged in the course of use, the damage is generally localized to the LCD screen and its casing.

Which brings me to what LG calls the biggest challenge in using a laptop. The words “LCD” or “Screens” often make people nervous when it comes to buying laptops. When you’re looking for laptops, there are three things you should keep an eye out for: display quality (more on this later), keyboard quality (more on this later), and trackpad quality (more on this later).

We’ll start with the first thing: display quality:

You need to know how you’re going to use your laptop before we give you advice on this one. Do you want a laptop for work? Are you more concerned about gaming than anything else? Are movies and videos an essential part of your viewing experience? Whatever it is, having this in mind will help us help you pick out a great laptop.

So what do we need to look for when we’re trying to find a laptop that has great display quality? The first thing that can help is the brightness of the screen. If your screen is dim or difficult to see, then you don’t have much use for it. This is because you need to be able to see what you’re doing. Another thing to keep an eye out for is resolution. When you’re deciding whether or not a computer has a good screen, resolution matters. A laptop with a low resolution can make things look blurry and distorted and cause headaches and eyestrain (this leads us to the next thing: keyboard quality).

Laptop keyboards

Keyboard quality is something else that you should pay attention to. When trying out laptops for display clarity, it’s important that you test out the keyboards on them as well. Laptop keyboards have two problems when it comes to finding qualities that are suited for your needs. First, keys can easily get stuck or not respond to input. Second, some keys (especially the spacebar key) are too close together. This makes it too easy to accidentally hit two keys at once, which can be very frustrating when you’re trying to type.

One of the most important aspects of your new laptop is its trackpad quality. The trackpad is what you use when you want to navigate around the screen if the laptop doesn’t have a mouse or a touch pad built in. The best way to test a trackpad is to see how well it works with your finger. If your finger doesn’t respond well, consider getting a different one. Trackpads are perfect for people who want to avoid using a mouse or who want more control over the screen.

So now that you know what you’re looking for, let’s go over some of the best laptops you can buy in the Philippines. Keep in mind that these are only recommendations based on our own experience. We encourage you to read up on other options as well before making your final decision on which one to go with.

MacBook Pro Gives Its Users Everything They Need to Get Work Done (13-inch, 2016)

The Apple MacBook Pro is certainly a high-end machine with a price to match. While it isn’t as powerful as its professional counterpart, the MacBook Pro gives its users what they need to get their work done. The 13-inch model is the one we here at GEAR and GEEK recommend if you want a machine that can replace your desktop computer at home and remain mobile.

If your recent experience with Apple has been good, then there’s a good chance that you already own an iPhone or iPad (or both). If that is the case, then you probably needn’t worry about buying an Apple accessory for this laptop because all of them come with built-in Bluetooth connectivity.

When it comes to multimedia (movies and music), the MacBook Pro plays its role well. You won’t be able to play the latest 4K ultra-high definition films, but you can use it without having to worry about quality loss. One advantage that businesses could take advantage of is the Apple Pencil for drawing and drawing with (we wrote a whole post on this).

Here’s what we like: 

The keyboard has good travel and feel. While the keys aren’t backlit, they are quite responsive and easy to press. The trackpad is spacious enough for comfortable use with your fingers, but we’d prefer to see it as large as the tablet versions of this laptop.
