Purchasing a Laptop


I have been asked a couple of times by people who want to buy laptops, and what specifications to look for and what brand in Kuwait.

The first thing I ask them is do they really need a laptop or can they do with a desktop, the second question is do you need a laptop right now or can you wait.

My Recommendation for waiting:

  • SSD incorporation in Laptops
  • OLED screens incorporated into laptops (new type of screens)
  • Improved type of Ram
  • More stable version of Vista
  • Apple Leopard will be released (So new Apple Hardware upgrades maybe in the works)
  • incorporation of HD-DVD or Blu-Ray
  • Decreasing the price of all this new technology

All this new technology is really being incorporated into the hardware over the past few months and will start becoming standard hardware over the next few months. I am telling people to wait at least until October or possibly the end of the year since there is a lot in the works. So if you want a laptop and can wait then don’t buy it and wait until the end of the year, even Dell is using SSD in their laptops.

    “Improved type of Ram”

    do you mean new type of ram or faster and more capacity?

  3. The problem with alot of people is that they do not consider thier actual requirements and needs when they shop for a PC

    When someone wants to use a PC just for surfing the web or chatting with friends, why should he go for a high-end system?

    even when his budget allowes

    I guess, it’s part of the “Fashkhara” thing, which is common among alot of us.


  4. i need a desktop … when i settle down … sometime in the future … maybe a little far future

  5. Frankom: hehehe! your friend should wait if possible!

    zoomzoom: more effecient, they might be packing 4Gbs soon!! faster interface!

    لمياء الحالمة: The requirements is not the priority, its their needs so they base the purchase off of that, but high-end machines are getting cheaper so let them enjoy.

    Laialy: When you come to Kuwait inshalla!

    lucky meee, i have a dell ;P

  7. Just as my mom used to say “kel ta25eerah feeha 5eerah.” :)

    How about Sony instead of Dell? I’ve been told that it is the best system for Windows.

  8. Zabo0o6a: loool! The later ones!

    Angelo: There is no one manufacturer that is best with Windows its the model you chose. I think that Sony is a good brand but I don’t like that they fill it with their software!
