Read our top 5 reasons to buy a new laptop in 2015…

1) Batteries last longer than ever before

These days, processors in machines are much more efficient. This means they use less power, and the battery in a new laptop lasts a lot longer. Gone are the days you had to lug around the charger for a laptop. Many of the laptops in our new range now last for 7 hours, so you can get a full day of work done on a single charge, wherever you are.

2) Thinner and better looking than before

Again, thanks to advancements in processor technology, the components inside a laptop can be smaller. This means the laptops can be thinner, giving you a great excuse to pick up your laptop, and do your work in the park. Thin, lightweight laptops have been around for a while now, but they usually came with a fat price tag. The new range of laptops has sleek new products without the chunky prices.

4) Faster and able to handle more complex tasks

The new wave of processors that are found in the latest laptops, allow for faster loading, whilst being able to handle more tasks at once.

As well as fantastic processors many of the new laptops in the range also feature solid state drives. SSDs replace the hard drive in a laptop and unlike hard drives, they are made up of a single part so are smaller and can run much quicker.

The old laptop range was a little dull. You generally had a choice between a silver or black machine, and 15.6 or 17". The new range now has a massive range of colours, sizes and different 2 in 1s external link that means a new laptop could not only suit your needs but your style too.

If you want to stand out from the crowd we have a range of laptops in all colours. Or maybe you want to impress your friends with a 2 in 1, flitting effortlessy between a laptop and tablet? We've got those too.
