Laptop Reviews

With a plethora of desktop replacements, thin and lights and ultraportable laptop computers on the market today, how does the bewildered buyer make an informed choice? By relying on personal recommendations from colleagues, family and friends, and also by reading opinions and laptop reviews such as those found at sites like Laptopical.

Portability, processor type (AMD Turion, Intel Core 2 Duo, Celeron etc), the storage capacity of the hard drive are important factors to consider. Also screen size, battery longevity, pricing and wireless connectivity are things to look out for when searching for the best laptop computer.
