How do computers work?

Computer hardware are basically all physical components that come together to create the computer system. Thanks to years of advancements, there are multiple kinds of hardware that can be installed in the computer or connected to the outside of the computer.

The size of the laptop – By size, I don’t mean the RAM and ROM of the device because you can always upgrade that later. Laptops can be 11.6 inches all the way to 13 inches big. If portability is the priority, you need to go for smaller laptops. However, smaller laptops often do not support the high end CPUS and graphic cards you will find in their larger counterparts.

Screen quality/display – you want a good screen that is comfortable to use and look at. Touch screen laptops ere very common and make some tasks on your laptop easier than others. Unfortunately, touch screens are glossy which can make the display undesirable. For resolution, 1920×1080-pixel resolution (Full HD) will give you a good view. Keep in mind that 4k and other high end revolutions make the laptop even more expensive. ‘

Keyboard quality – if you want a laptop for typing, get one with a comfortable keyboard. Make sure the keyboard you have is backlit to allow typing in dimly lit area. Full sized keyboards prevent nappy responsiveness when the device is in use.

The CPU – it is impossible to go over the CPU when buying a modern laptop. Intel core processor gives users the best performance for multimedia and multitasking. Core i3 CPU s generally in entry level systems, i5 in many of the mainstream computers and i7 in best performance laptops.

Ram- for gamers, laptops with an upwards of 32GB RAM will do if you want the best gaming experience. Ram allows more applications to run simultaneously and this means more data is quickly accessible by the system at any time.

Pc gaming

It is easy to turn your computer into a gaming pc. You can choose to purchase a manufactures gaming PC or upgrade your current computer to support games you want to play. Learning about the inner functions of the computer will make it easy for you to make an informed decision about your computer and computer parts.
