There are special laptops out there, built for gaming. They feature big screens, high resolutions, fancy video cards, and other nice things.
Should you pay more for one of these models? That depends on the type of games you want to play.
Before you buy a laptop, sit down and figure out what you’re going to do with it. If you want to play games, then make a list of the top 5 games you want to play.
Let’s say you want to play World Of Warcraft. Go to Google, and search: World of Warcraft system requirements – this will take you to a website that tells you the type of computer you need to play the game.
They recommend a dual-core processor, 1 to 2 GB of RAM, and a video card with 128 MB of Video RAM. They tell you exactly what you need to buy.
Make a list of the system requirements for your top 5 games. Then write down those specifications on a piece of paper, and go shopping.
If you need to buy a special gaming laptop and you can afford it, then buy one. If you don’t need one, then don’t buy one.
Basically, the rule of thumb is: Don’t buy more than you need, but don’t buy less than you need either.
If you’re buying a laptop to play games, then make sure that the laptop you buy will play the games you want to play.
But, if you are buying a laptop to surf the Web and send emails, then you don’t need a fancy gaming laptop. Buy a more basic model.
