A laptop by any other name is a laptop. Unless it’s a tablet. Or a gaming laptop. Or a workstation. Or a hybrid. Or a 2-in-1. Now that we bring it up, all laptops are not made the same. They can be modified or configured to match any need, and can be as unique as the consumer who buys them.
What do you need your laptop for, some gaming? Maybe some light video editing (or even some heavy video... READ MORE
Storage space in the digital realm is similar to a reality TV show about people who hoard too many belongings—a computer’s internal storage is crammed with so much data that an external storage drive is necessary for providing additional space. The myriad choices can be a bit overwhelming for the average digital pack rat, and squirreling away images of every angle of your kid’s fourth birthday... READ MORE

Purchasing a laptop for yourself or a loved one this holiday season? It’s not an easy decision. You have to ask yourself what you need the laptop for—some heavy writing, with a little entertainment thrown in? How about some heavy graphic design with an emphasis on gaming? Or, how about you go all grown up and get a laptop that can handle a heavy workload, no frills included?

Humans are on a constant quest to improve themselves. We’ll do anything possible to make ourselves taller, thinner, more muscular, or more educated.
