We have a lot of laptop reviews here at PC Perspective. As you’d expect, we generally use the same benchmarks and use the same principles whenever reviewing a laptop.

Because we comment on the general layout of a product in this section, connectivity is discussed in this section as well. Usually this requires little more than a listing of ports, but some laptops do have unusual methods of covering ports, or will have ports placed in poor locations. If we encounter such issues, they’re noted.

Although perhaps a bit less subjective than design, there’s still a lot of room for user preference here. Design comes first, and is also the most subjective.

Manual control of the backlight via function keys is a plus, as well. Audio quality is extremely subjective. Still, we are most concerned with distortion (noise that occurs when a speaker is attempting to produce sounds outside of its range) and volume. Laptop speakers that cause distortion can quickly become a problem when trying to enjoy music, though they might sound fine when watching a YouTube video. Volume is important because it’s difficult to produce a lot of sound from small speakers, so a laptop that can easily fill a living room with sound is exceptional. Did you enjoy this post?

We like to see a premium touchpad surface that is dis- tinguished from the rest of the laptop’s interior ei- ther by texture or by an obvious border. We prefer touchpads that provide two individual buttons, but other solutions can work well so long as they don’t have dead-zone issues or require excessive force to activate. Display And Audio Quality We test display quality by examining the laptop using the Lagom LCD test images. After that, we watch high-resolution YouTube videos and play a few games (usually our benchmark titles) on the laptop. This helps us form an overall judgement. Love this PDF?
