What used to be a bulky piece of equipment can now be brought anywhere. I’m talking about the computer, laptops to be precise. Compared to smartphones and tablets, laptops prove to be the most versatile and of the highest performance. Through the years, laptops have gone lighter and more powerful, not to mention more affordable. It’s also the most complete device perfect for working from virtually anywhere. However, restrictions to travel has limited the use of laptops to home use. Therefore, investing in a good one should be high priority these days.
A work from home laptop must be powerful enough to be used in different kinds of jobs. We must be wise in picking the right one as it will serve as a source of bread and butter for most of us. The new normal is here, and probably will stay the whole year. Oh and by the way, why is a desktop out of the picture? It may still be good, however, the laptop is a must in emergency cases, which unfortunately happens a lot in the Philippines. What if your home internet connection gets cut off or is unreliable? What if your boss tells you to go to a certain venue? You certainly can’t carry your CPU tower and monitor all the way to the venue or to a coffeehouse with Wi-Fi.
What to look for in a WFH laptop? Go for one with at least an Intel core-i5 CPU core processor. Going for anything lower will only disappoint you. 4 gigabytes of RAM will ensure the smooth running of your laptop. When it comes to memory, 128GB of SSD (Solid State Drive) is way faster than HDD so make sure to be equipped with one and an extra 500GB HDD for storage wouldn’t hurt too. Lastly, video card specs will be determined by the type of work you do. If it’s graphics and video intensive, then you should invest in video cards higher than 2GB.
