Debunking common laptop myths

  1. 1. Debunking Common Laptop Myths Original Post: common-laptop-myths
  2. 2. Laptops are a polarizing product. Onone hand, people hail laptopsbecause of their portability, and onthe other, people lambast them forlimited performance.Which way do you lean? Well, it alldepends on you, but there are plentyof laptop myths that need to bedebunked so everyone can just getalong.
  3. 3. Here are some of these myths if you’re interested
  4. 4.  Laptops Aren’t Upgradeable Many people choose to forego laptops because they think that they are not upgradeable. That’s because manufacturers have specific ways to install parts and they’re all calculated to maximize space. Wires and other parts are already planned out, as opposed to a desktop where you can keep an old PSU but have a powerful motherboard.
  5. 5.  Laptops Aren’t Upgradeable Contrary to popular belief, you can upgrade laptops. Well, that depends on the laptop of course. Laptop parts can be bought very cheaply, and you can make some changes.
  6. 6.  Laptops Perform Poorly It’s no surprise that an $8,000 gaming desktop will perform better than $3,000 laptop. You can cram in 12 – core CPU’s, two video cards and an extravagant cooling system! For laptops, you have limited space to work with, but that doesn’t mean laptops perform poorly.
  7. 7.  Laptops Perform Poorly Again, contrary to popular belief, laptops can be very powerful. The top gaming laptops made right now feature the latest parts, such as third – generation Intel Core processors, nicknamed Ivy Bridge processors. These laptops perform really well, especially when paired with high – end graphics cards. They can play games at high settings.
  8. 8.  Laptops Are Expensive That’s true. You’ll find laptops that cost at least a thousand dollars or more, but in the world of technology, you get what you pay for. One common complaint about laptops is that they cost more than a desktop. They’re not using their brians! Laptops have the complete package - screen, cooling system, parts and warranty. Desktops can become costly too if you purchase entirely new systems, instead of upgrading parts one by one.
  9. 9.  Laptops Die Easily One problem that laptop owners have is the short battery life of laptops. Well, they’re not responsible users. They like to crank everything to the max, expecting that a laptop will last the whole day without any charging. Of course it’s not going to last that way.
  10. 10.  Laptops Die Easily Technology right now is amazing, and thanks to its advancements, laptops can last throughout the whole day without any problem. Look at Apple’s laptops – they can last for long periods of time. The same goes for Windows laptops.
