5 reasons why now is a great time to upgrade your laptop
Starting uni in September? Or is your laptop just on the go-slow? Here’s how an upgrade could help you…
1. Windows 10 gives you the best experience
Windows 10 is hailed as Microsoft’s best operating system yet. It’s simple to use and fully optimised to work fluidly across desktops, tablets and smartphones – without compromising on performance.
The new Edge browser makes reading online easier, while virtual assistant Cortana sets reminders and helps you keep on top of your busy schedule.
2. You can get a laptop and a tablet in one
Laptop or tablet – which should you invest in? Well, that’s no longer a dilemma thanks to 2-in-1 laptops.
With the freedom to switch between 2 devices, you get a much more versatile experience for your money. Work on-the-go in laptop mode, and effortlessly switch to tablet mode for a film later on.
3. You can get faster performance with Intel Core 8th Generation
Optimised for life on the go, laptops with Intel Core 8th Gen processors offer 40% more power (according to Laptop Magazine) than the 7th Generation.
With quad-core technology it’s the fastest, most efficient processor yet, allowing you to create, edit and view 4K UHD content and experience the ultimate in virtual reality gaming.
4. Laptop cameras can now do so much more
With Windows 10 you can benefit from the clever depth sensing of Intel RealSense cameras. With this technology, you can log into your laptop simply by sitting in front of the camera. As your laptop recognises you, it will immediately load up all your personalized preferences.
The clever camera won’t be fooled by someone holding a picture of you because it searches for unique details of your face. It’s even been known to differentiate between identical twins. As well as keeping secure, you can also scan 3D objects and control your apps through hand gestures.
5. Laptops are for artists as well as analyticals
Laptops have come a long way from just words and spreadsheets. Thanks to the advent of colour accurate displays, touchscreens and pressure sensitive digital pens, they’re the perfect tool for being creative on the go.
Multitouch screens with 4K displays help provide beautiful depths in drawings and art – making your on-the-go artworks look stunning.
