Buying Laptop Computers is a good guide for anyone who is in the market for a new computer, but is especially good for consumers who don't consider themselves tech savvy. The guide does a guide job of succinctly and clearly explaining the key things that you should look for when shopping for a new laptop. One piece of advice that jumped out as I went through the guide was the reminder that you're buying the whole computer and not to get too hung up on one aspect of a laptop while ignoring other important aspects. For example, battery life is important but if it comes at the expense of a lower quality processor you might not be happy with your purchase a year down the road.
