A lot of parents have been asking me lately on what laptop to buy for their kids to start the next school year at home. There are lots of ranges for laptops, from those ultra cheap Intel Celeron chips to those fiery Intel Core i7 and AMD Ryzen 5. Question is which laptop is suitable for your kids?
Overspending is not an option during pandemic, we never know when we will get retrenched by our company or when our business might take a 360 turn due to the unpredictability of the virus. We would like to give the ample laptop just for daily school time use for our kids, now if your a parent who have a gaming rig at home, then congratulations, you don’t need to shell out extra money just to cover up that need for your kids.
But there are always parents who are not geeky and telling them all the specs will definitely be a headache for them. Now this article is simply made to clear the air on what you really.
Now lets break it down a bit, what your kids will be using will primarily be Zoom and LMS. These are web based programs and are very hungry for internet speed, let me repeat again, its very hungry for internet speed, not processing speed from your laptops. So investing on a high speed computer with a low speed internet will probably end up futile. You simply wont get the job done.
Now I will make another separate article on the internet speed, and here are my best recommendation for laptops.
