The best thing to do once you go over this information is to establish what you want to use the computer for. If you are planning to work on it, make sure it supports the programs you use at the office. If you have graphic design in mind, then it is best to choose a screen with great resolution and a processor for all image editing programs. If all you want to do is write, play games and carry it around with you everywhere, then maybe a very lightweight computer would be best. The great thing is that 2017 is a year with great options for people looking for a great laptop, so enjoy!
