Tips to Buy a Industry Best Laptop

Processor: Intel's Pentium M processor has enabled notebooks gain new ground in the powerful department. In my experience, notebooks using the Pentium M performed considerably faster than those using the Mobile Pentium 4. Pentium M processors also allow for long battery life. You can still opt for a Mobile Pentium 4 processor, such as one at 3.0 GHz, but most notebook vendors opting the Pentium M in all classes of notebooks.

Low-end notebooks offer Intel's cheaper Celeron M processor, which is generally not as speedy as the Pentium M processor, and which does not include Intel's Centrino Mobile technology

System memory: A new notebook generally includes 512MB of system memory. Don't compromise for anything less than 256MB if you want to do more than word processing and e-mail, because Windows XP and latest applications recommended minimum 512 memory.

Graphics memory: You have to choose minimum 64MB or 128MB of dedicated video RAM, or VRAM, if you have option to use your laptop to drive external monitors for presentations. Make sure the memory is dedicated for graphic use, rather than pulled from main memory; this is sometimes referred to as a universal (UMA) or shared (SMA) memory architecture, or as dynamic video memory technology. Gamers should look for advanced 3D graphics chips, such as nVidia's GeForce Go 6800 Ultra, and 256MB of dedicated graphics memory.

Screen: Notebooks with standard aspect 14.1- and 15-inch screens can still have good places.
Battery: Notebook battery life improved thorugh the introduction of the Pentium M. In my opinion, battery life M processor laptops have averaged roughly 3.5 hours on one battery. Some notebooks can run for up to 7 hours.

Optical and other drives: Most manufacturers offer notebooks with rewritable DVD drives, some of which are also dual-layer.

Hard drive: This is portion you have to take wise decision that, your notebooks should be with 60 GB hard drives.A top-of-the-line 120GB drive will set you back a few hundred dollars if you purchase it when you order your laptop. You can easily remove most laptop hard drives if you decide you want to upgrade or just keep your data safe.

Wireless and BlueTooth:This feauture become the industry standard in notebooks, so you have to select Built-in ethernet and Bluetooth. Notebooks using the Intel Centrino processor include Intel's 802.11b/g networking built in.
If you build your notebook on this category, there is no doubt "The Best In Your Hand"
