Purchasing a business laptop isn't quite as easy as driving to a physical store and grabbing the latest model on sale. There are some points to consider, particularly if you're a business owner who want to set up thousands of the same PC for your company's workforce.
Performance and Memory
Dual-core processors like the Intel Core i3/i5/i7 series or AMD A-series APUs are the standard in many business PCs. Though quad-core processors such as the Intel Core i5/i7s and the AMD PRO A-series are built for demanding business applications. Energy-saving processors like the Intel Core m3 are replacing the impressive Intel Atom product line in tablets and other ultrabooks.
Another thing to keep in mind is look for no less than 4GB of RAM if you are buying a PC for an employee, but it’s best to go for 8GB or 16GB as much as possible (Graphic artists and accountants will need 4GB as their absolute minimum.) The right amount of memory lets your employees keep more programs, windows, and browser tabs open at once, and perform multimedia applications (like editing software) faster.
Acer has some high-end laptop models and netbooks that house an i7 processor as well as budget ones that wield i3 processors.
With businesses using video, PowerPoint slides, and megapixel-rich images in staff meetings, a capacious hard drive is an ideal choice. A hard drive that has 500GB to 1TB memory offers the right balance between economy and space. Although they are costlier and offer less storage, solid-state drives (SSDs) are not equipped with any spinning parts. Systems that are equipped with SSD also boot and launch apps faster as well. Today, it's difficult to find a SSD boot drive with less than 128GB capacity on a Windows computer but extending the amount to 256GB or 512GB is a brilliant idea if you can do it.
Go for one with Graphics Support
Most business PCs from Acer Philippines come with integrated graphics, whether from Intel, AMD, or Nvidia. Integrated graphics are great for business laptops since you won't be playing 3D games on a computer meant for work. Some professionals require discrete graphics that they can use for specialized tasks like GPU acceleration in Photoshop, HD video creation in Premiere, or 3D graphics visualization used in architectural drawings, and CAD software. Mobile-workstation-class laptops like those from Acer will usually come with some sort of discrete graphics, either for their 3D capabilities or to drive multiple monitors.
The Proper Amount of Connectivity
A strong and reliable wireless connection is important if you want to get access to valuable information on the web and real-time emails. Today’s laptops have some flavor of Wi-Fi built in. It gives you impressive performance but you have to look for a hotspot or an unprotected network to surf the Web. Go for a dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi that offers the best flexibility for your IT organization.
