What to consider when buying a laptop on Black Friday (27th November)?

Screen size

Laptop screens tend to range in size from as small as 11 inches up to 17 inches or more. While a larger screen is a big plus for watching movies or playing games, it's worth keeping in mind that lighting up such a big display consumes a considerable chunk of power. All other factors equal, a 17-inch laptop is going to burn through its battery much faster than a 13-inch laptop, so if you plan on spending a few hours away from a power outlet, you might want to think twice before picking the biggest screen you can find.

Portability

Like the screen, the size of a laptop in general is an important factor to consider. That doesn't just mean the dimensions, either; weight should be a key part of your buying decision. Some higher-end laptops can weigh upwards of 4kg, even those with relatively small 13-inch screens. That might not feel so bad at first touch, but after an hour in your backpack, you may regret not going for something lighter.

Battery life

While processing power, graphical capabilities and storage capacities have evolved dramatically over the years, battery life has remained frustratingly stagnant. Many laptops still suffer from battery life of just a couple of hours, especially higher-end laptops with dedicated graphics cards and large displays like the Razer Blade Pro or the Acer Predator Helios 300. Having to constantly plug into a power outlet undermines the very portability of a laptop, so be sure to check both battery capacity and battery benchmarks before laying down your cold, hard cash.
