The holiday shopping season is always a busy (and profitable) time for malls and retail shops. Beginning with Black Friday and onwards until 11:59 PM on Christmas Eve, the shopping scene is expected to be a frenzied one.

With portable gadgets becoming as prevalent as they are, a laptop is sure to be on the wish list of a loved one. While some will be asking for a laptop primed for Windows 8, others may want to forego Microsoft’s latest OS for the moment until such time that a more thorough analysis of the program can be given. Till then, portable computers with “old-school” (such as they are) laptop parts and specs may be in order.

If you’re looking for one of those, here are some points to consider:

  • 2. The holiday shopping season is always a busy time for malls and retail shops.Beginning with Black Friday and onwards until 11:59 PM on Christmas Eve, theshopping scene is expected to be a frenzied one.With portable gadgets becoming as prevalent as they are, a laptop is sure to be onthe wish list of a loved one. While some will be asking for a laptop primed forWindows 8, others may want to forego Microsoft’s latest OS for the moment untilsuch time that a more thorough analysis of the program can be given. Tillthen, portable computers with “old-school” (such as they are) laptop parts andspecs may be in order.If you’re looking for one of those, here are some points to consider:
  • 3. 1. The WeightPortability is the point behindlaptops. Therefore, a laptop thatputs a lot of stress on yourshoulders would becounterintuitive to the wholepoint of the thing.About 6 pounds of weightshould be enough. Any moreand you’re better off notcarrying it around a lot.
  • 4. 2. The SizeSize should also factor into a laptop’s portability. Whether or not it weighs 6 pounds, if itsdimensions won’t allow it to fit inside a standard backpack, how would you be able to lug itaround conveniently?Conversely, if the laptop’s screen is too small, you might as well be holding a tablet PC inyour hands.To get that sweet spot size-wise, 13 inches should be the way to go.
  • 5. 3. The ChipsetsA gaming PC should have powerfullaptop components installed to be ableto run the latest resource-hungry videogames.For the casual user, laptop parts like anIntel Core i3 processor and integratedgraphics should be adequate enough.You may go a bit higher if you want to(provided you have the cash, ofcourse), but high-end laptopcomponents might be overkill for mostpractical uses.
  • 6. 4. RAMIf there’s hardware that shouldn’t betaken lightly, though, it should be thelaptop’s RAM. Speed is a premiumattribute when it comes tocomputers, and at least 4 GB of RAMshould be more than sufficient for mostcurrent programs. It also lets yourlaptop remain future-proof for the nextcouple of years.
  • 7. 6. Optical DrivesWhile these laptop parts are certainlyhandy to have, the trend of mediacontent becoming digital downloads, aswell as programs going the sameroute, are slowly making optical drivesa thing of the past.
  • 8. 7. The PriceAnd of course, the price should alwaysbe a factor to think about; more so thanmost factors for many people, actually.$500 is good place to start with for 13-inchers. You may go a bit higher thanthat if your budget allows, but anythingmore than $700 is already excessive.
