The fun toys that get your business done – and go where you go. We sell and service most of the major laptop brands currently available: HP, Samsung, Sony Vaio. Laptops can be anything from a small light ultra-portable device to a large 17" desktop replacement, and you can spend anything from $800 to $8,000 on a laptop so it's important to look at the options carefully.

Generally your choice of system will be between Windows and Mac. Windows laptops are generally more affordable and offer a much wider range of choices. Unlike Apple, Microsoft and its partners allow users to buy notebooks with touch screens, as well as convertible designs that let you easily transform from notebook to tablet mode. If you’ve used Windows, but haven’t used Windows 8, you may be in for a surprise. The start menu has gone and it is now a tile-based start screen, generally designed for the touch screen users. Windows notebooks tend to be more business friendly.

Apple MacBooks offer an easy to use operating system and also tend to outclass most Windows machines when it comes to design and quality, but at a price, and often the price difference can be very significant.

Some things to consider when selecting a laptop are:

  • Weight - Do you mind if it's heavy? Does it need to be light?
  • Screen size - Bigger isn't always better
  • Battery life - How long does it need to last?
  • Warranty - How long is it and what's the repair process?
  • Colour - Do you really want a red one?

SOLID STATE DRIVES (blistering START with an SSD)

SSD Disks can significantly improve your laptop performance

With faster boot-up time, file searches, app start-ups, and less downtime and power usage, it won't take long for you to understand why Solid State Drives (SSD) are the best choice. Take a read and discover three reasons why you should have your own SSD.

  • Speed-up your boot-up - SSDs know that go means go. Just turn it on and begin working in less than 15 seconds.
  • Start applications in seconds - Need to make a quick ten-second edit before meeting with a client? SSDs load programmes such as Adobe Photoshop and PowerPoint more than twice as fast as their HDD counterparts.
  • Cut maintenance by half - Routine maintenance tasks shouldn't disrupt your work flow. SSDs cut simple tasks like virus scans by almost 50 percent.
