The Ultrabook Guide

  1. 1.
  2. 2. So, you’ve decided to sell old laptop and you want to use an ultrabook instead. That’s great,because ultrabooks are getting more powerful as time goes by. There’s certainly an ultrabookthat will fit your needs. Manufacturers release a wide variety of ultrabooks for everyone.What do you watch out for when buying an ultrabook? This guide will help you pick the rightlaptop for you, in the event you actually go to the mall and buy one. Screen Ultrabooks are all about portability, and that is dictated by the screen size. Ultrabooks generally fit the 13 – inch category, but right now we’re seeing divergences in design. You’ll find that some ultrabooks now have 14 – inch screens, and even 15 – inch ones. The screen size totally depends on what you want to have. Of course, 13 inch screens allow great portability, but you won’t have much fun watching videos and stuff. Try looking for an ultrabook that allows you to have a bigger screen without becoming too bulky.
  3. 3. Storage Ultrabooks are all about speed, and this is the reason why many of them come with solid state drives. They offer faster loading times and incredible performance. The downside to this though, is that they are more expensive and have a smaller capacity in contrast to traditional hard drives. This is the reason some manufacturers offer hybrid drives, where the operating system is installed in the solid state drive for increased performance, and the hard drive is used for traditional storage purposes. Again, if you can, look for an ultrabookthat offers a fully solid state drive, because you’ll get the best performance from it.
  4. 4. PortsPorts make a laptop truly useful. You can connect it to a bigger TV, and do other stuff with it.For ultrabooks, thinness is the key to their success, so manufacturers choose to forget someimportant ports to achieve a thin design. This may potentially turn away customers who arelooking for ports to help them get work done.For example, some ultrabooks choose to forego the all – important Ethernet port and go withadaptors instead. This is bad because some people like to use the Ethernet port instead of Wi-Fi.Some ultrabooks also don’t have USB 3.0 ports. These ports are quickly becoming a standard forcomputers so if you find that one ultrabook doesn’t have them, then you may have asubstandard product.Try looking for ultrabooks that offer the complete set of ports that usually come with mainstreamlaptops.
  5. 5. Battery Life Of course, we have to consider battery life when it comes to choosing an ultrabook. Battery life is never consistent. Each manufacturer has different battery lives for their models, and it’s tough to find one that is consistent. Thankfully though, plenty of ultrabooks have long battery life, so it’s highly likely you’ll find one that will last long.ConclusionIf you sell your laptop and you are planning to buy for an ultrabook, it’s important to considerthese points because it will influence your final decision.With a bit of research though, you’ll definitely find one that will fit your lifestyle.
